What Rims Are These?

Anybody have any idea? Are these the Euro Spec of the 18's?

first picture are fantasy 19 or even 20" on 30 or 25 sidewall tires - the 18"s look different.
second picture must be EU or some other region - in the US the 18"s are Gunmetal

I agree for 1st photo - PSed euro 18 look bigger.

Second photo is the US stock 18" design, but it looks lighter than it is in real life. (I have stock 18 euro and have seen stock 18 US)

do you have pics of the Euro 18"s - just curious since the car in the second pictures is actually a Euro car - US Version doesn't have front PDC and also has the ugly orange reflectors - at least from the pic it doesn't look like they are gunmetal...

Pretty good looking wheels. Must be a pain to clean though when they get dirty..
