Identify These Wheels?

Does anyone have any idea of the manufacturer/source of these counterfeit Fuchs? They came on my SC and I know they are at least twenty years old, maybe more. No markings that I can see other than size and maximum load. I am pretty sure they are cast, not forged.

No comment on the wheel manufacturer...but it seems to have a lot of weight for balancing.

Maxwheel. They made Fuchs replicas in the '80s +. They were big in the VW world...

Ha! I thought the cast-in Max Wheel was part of the load restriction below it..
