    I might be wrong, but pretty sure those are either Enkei or American Racing wheels. It doesn't really matter, but I believe Riken only made this style.

    The price is not bad for the pair. Obviously you will need to find another pair, but they do come up for sale from time to time. You even see singles come up for sale occasionally. So might take a little longer to complete the set, but worth the $100 to me if you have the time and cash. Good Luck!

    Could've had them on the car and then damaged the other 2.

    I've got 2 17" Cobra Rs gathering dust. I took the car out when it was snowing and spun out into the curb, damaged 2 rims too badly to use. So switched to 10 holes and kept the good cobras until I can decide what direction I'm going to take the car later.

    $100 for the set is not a bad price IMHO. The center caps are an issue, but the same goes for Riken wheels. Unfortunately the Riken don't seem to come up for sale as often, but hopefully you get lucky! Good Luck!

    IMO the 15" wheels just look too small, then making the tires look too tall, plus I read how people complain that finding 15" tires is getting harder. I agree with Trey that the Riken's look better than the Enkei's (and other brands) that have a flatter face, but I wouldn't pass up a nice set of 16" Enkei's. Finding center caps can also be a challenge, so if you are seriously looking, try to find a set that includes the caps.

    $100 for four is a STEAL. They usually do for 250-350 for 15 or $350-500 for 16 rims depending upon condition.

    Center caps can be 3D printed in ABS with a file found on here and thingaverse for about $0.10 each.

    Pictures of my 16 ARE freshly after Trey polished them and repainted them. Also a picture of my 16 Rikens as I found them when I bought them in central Iowa.
