Need help to identify,..I think the black is an American Eagle brand with ball socket type lug holes and is about 5.5". The gold is maybe? Lug holes are mag style with the washer and it measures about 4-3/4" wide.

very odd pat ! I don't think they are for vw? never seen one that skinny .or with the raised center like that one. Confused maybe for something small and British ? mg or something. early 8 spokes took a regular mag lug nut and washer.. but those where also 2 piece? but they where all 5.5 wide.

The gold wheel is an American Racing 8 spoke. They were made in the late 60's-70's in both mag an aluminum. They came in a few different patterns & could very well be english. The 4x130's exist, but they are pretty uncommon.
Hope this helps.
