Are these Speedline, RH or ???? (Cross Post)

I am trying to get a positive ID on these wheels just by these pictures. They have the correct bolt head for a Speedline, but don't have the "SL" embossed in the bolt head. RHs typically have different bolt head style and a little dimple in them, so I am inclined to believe that they are NOT RHs. I can see a parting line between the outer rim half and center, so I am inclined to believe that they are really 3-piece wheels, but are they really Speedline? Can anyone help identify these wheels......

TIA!

From what I know

If those were speedlines, they would have the word "Speedline" on the polished lip adjacent to the spokes. I do not see it on the pictures.

I have RH wheels and I'm guessing (unless someone else makes that style) that they are are RH also. Here is a shot of mine.

The Speedline wheels made for the '94 965 are the only ones that have speedline for porsche etched into the outer rim half.
Speedline wheels for other cars and the aftermarket with the same bolt pattern do not have the etching.

Those do not look like Speedline or RH rims, especially the outer rim half if that is actually a 2 or 3 piece wheel and not a fake to look like it.

There is another company advertising on ebay making lower cost wheels that look like this.

I agree with the "Speedline" etching, but I find myself wondering if that etching is at the top of the wheel (in that picture) and just not visable.

Look at the bolt heads on your RHs. They have a little dimple in them and I have seen that on ALL RH that I found on the internet. The wheels I am looking at don't have that. In fact the bolt on the wheels I posted pictures of look JUST like Speedline bolts, but don't have the familiar "SL" embossed in the head. Like this.....

looking at this close up, it LOOKS like there is a parting line between the rim half and the center. I *think* they are 3-piece wheels, but currently have no way to confirm that.

It's my understanding that these wheels have been on a car for a number of years. So, I think they would predate the rash of cheap Chinese eBay knock-off wheels.

All you have to do is remove one and look at the writing and numbers on the back.

The cheap fake 3 piece ebay RH speedline copies are supposedly made in Germany but I doubt it.

I have 18" RH speedline copies and the center is similar but the outer rim half or barrel is very different and the bolts are different.
Your's may be 17", hard to tell and that could make the rim half look different than my 18's.

RH bolts are 12 point and have a dimple in the center of the head.

fronts


rears


If you can see the valve stems in your pictures you post, shouldn't you also be able to see the offset/width printed on the rim?

Those look like a inexpensive 1 piece wheel called Keskin KT2 made in Germany. I see them advertised on ebay 8.5 & 9 x 18 for $1,250 or so. Item 290359185745. The outer lip just does not look like a Speedline or RH lip. Jim

What really throws me for a loop is they appear to have only 32 bolts instead of the 38 of the early RH's or the 40 of the new RH's and speedlines. Jim might be right with them being Keskin's although the Keskin's are a one peice wheel made to look like a three piece. I was thinking they might be Kersher's but the bolt holes are all wrong. Here is a picture of the Kersher's and you can see the lug bolts are all wrong.
