I have four wheels I cannot identify. I have spent hours in the Forum and my head is spinning. What brand are these? For what model were they originally intended? Should I be looking for other markings? (I could not find any on the inside.)

This is what I know.
Stamped Made in Brazil
Stamped 4 1/2Jx15
Stamped M over K (or at least this is what it looks like)
4-lug
20 square slots

"Mangels" possibly? Although I'm not sure what their logo looks like.

Some similar looking ones discussed here: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=607424&highlight=mangels

I used to have a bunch of Brazilian Mangles brochures. Those rims were in there. My buddy worked in their NJ warehouse. Then he left to work for Eagle Alloys, go figure.
