i was curious what markings the DDS wheels had on them. i have looked at pictures fo DDS wheels and the Ercos and they look the same to me. If you were going to pay the big $$$ DDS products command how do you verify?

I figured I paid $1500 for my first set of 4 along with a flat 4 5th spare wheel. All in very nice shape, with caps and lugs. And that was 5 years ago. The set I have now from a barn stored race car I bought for 1000, traded to a friend and bought them back with a NOS brm for 2k a year later, again, a few years ago. I wouldnt think of selling them today. crazy $$$$$$$

How much is one, ratty, non-usable one worth?


I'm also looking for one to use as a hose hanger in the yard.
