Hi ll, hoping someone here may have the knowledge Im seeking. I just purchased a set of 15 x 5.5 chrome stock style wheels, used but they look like they have never been mounted. One of them is labeled "Mangel", which seems to be a known brand and is made in Brazil. Two of them are "MAM" with the size and "China". The 4th wheel has no identifying marks, but is nearly identical to the two MAM wheels. Does anyone know anything about MAM made wheels?

Thanks!

Sigh...yeah, I was afraid of that after stumbling across the thread on them. Well, I'll be sure to check them carefully before I get tires mounted. And it will be interesting to see if hubcaps will actually mount on them.

Part of learning the current landscape of VW parts, I guess....
