Can anyone ID the brand of these wheels?

    Need some 16x10s and was thinking about trying aluminum for weigh saving, but wonder about durability. Anyone know if they might be the forged ones?

    I'm thinking I could roll a ring out of round rod and weld it to the rim for extra beef.

    Yeah, they all look the same. No way to tell if they're forged by looking. The seller couldn't find anything on them to ID them. Oh well, I'll prolly just get them and see what happens.
