    Hey guys, was wondering if you could help me identify some wheels I have. They look identical to the DP-5's shown here, at least in terms of shape: Saleen Club of America TECH Section
    Mine have DP logo center caps instead of the Saleen logo and have a silver/chrome finish, though the finish is in pretty rough shape. There are tires on three of them - two have 205/55R16s and one has 205/50R16.
    Are these actually Saleen wheels or something else? I only ask here because searching online for these DP's only brings up references to Saleen stuff. I can take whatever measurements needed to confirm since there are also two additional rims without tires I can measure.
    Sorry for the relative lack of info - I'm a motorcycle guy so car wheels are a little out of my spectrum...

    Take some pics of them as best as you can, and post them up here. That will probably be the only way anyone can help you here.

    Without knowing the information on the back of the wheel it is hard to tell (offset, width, etc).

    By looking at the pictures it looks like the 205 tires bulge on the rim somewhat. This leads me to believe they may only be 6-7in wide wheels which would not be Saleen specific.

    Let us know if you can make out the information on the back of the spokes, measure for backspacing, or lug spacing measurements.

    Just out of curiosity, where did you get them? There was a kid in the Seattle area selling a set like that last year. If they're the same ones, they were not Saleen wheels.
