I want to say Forgline, but those spokes look a little too thin.

OZ Crono III?

Did you get that picture from this eBay listing?

Porsche Wheels 19" x 10 25" and 19" x 8 5" Set of Four | eBay

The guy doesn't know much about them, but if the specs he listed are correct, you would need a Porsche wheel adapter to use them.

I have to head out for dentist appointment, so I've run out of time to look further for now. Pretty sure I've seen them listed new on eBay and supplied with the adapter.

those are them ! They could be a good deal . They may be an old premium wheel or some cheap chinese wheel . they appear to be a true 3 pcs. he says they came off a 911 and that is all he knows . can anyone figure out these mystery wheels ?

Could be a really good deal, except the Porsche wheel adapter part I don't care for. He also has it listed as local pickup only.

I'm not crazy about the chrome part of the wheel. The curb rash could easily be fixed and use some Dupli-Color Shadow on the chrome.

I am thinking they are 5 x 130 if they came off a 911 @ 19" . refinishing would only be worth it if they were a high quality wheel .

Here is the new set I saw. Not quite the same and these do use adapters.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-WHEELS-19-19x9-19x10-PORSCHE-WHEELS-993-996-997-TURBO-/390153541559?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Wheels&hash=item5ad6f697b7&vxp=mtr#

The used set of wheels, I would ask more about them, like where did he get the lug pattern and hub bore from? Neither of those were used by Porsche.
