Can anyone ID these wheels?

Curious what kind of wheels these are... anyone know what brand/model they are? Logical thing says to ask the seller, which I did, but he believes they are original Porsche wheels, lol...

Thanks in advance..

Always confidence inspiring to buy something from a seller who knows not what he sells. Maybe "dealer installed" but certainly not genuine Porsche.

Growing up the car magazines said how amazing Porsches are. Was I brainwashed? Somehow...I doubt it.

Funny thing is the rims sold on EBay for $2325.00 and the very same ones on that website were selling for $1198.90.

Minus the tires.

The wheels on eBay, the spokes go flush into the area where the rivets are, but lay down differently..



vs.





Thanks though...
