Those look like Varrstoen ES4's. They are the most realistic looking reps to P40's. VMR V710 and Avant Garde M310 are much more concave.

Great looking wheels for the price, and they are the most realistic looking P40 reps (I don't think V710's and M310's look much like real P40's), but i've heard quite a few horror stories about Varrstoen's quality.

If you had more photos, then maybe. I am pretty sure that they are the either real HRE P40's or Varrstoen ES4's. The sharper spoke edges on flatter face suggests the Varrstoens. But, the Varrstoens have holes between the lug holes. Because of this, I am 99% sure they're authentic HRE P40's.

I doubt they are P40 SC's, L's, or S's. They don't have the concavity for SC's and the L is for larger cars.

Take a rim off, look on the back pad. There should be a serial number if they are HRE's. You can then contact them for offset information, sizes, etc.

The regular p40 has holes next to bolts.

Let me correct myself, these wheels also might be the HRE M40's. They look nearly identical to the P40's. As for the holes next to the lug holes, not all P40's have those holes. I've seen sets without them.

Here's an example of a set without those holes.
http://www.insidethewb.com/wp-conten.../IMG_40591.jpg

There's still a possibility they might be reps. Your best bet is to check the back pad. If they are reps, they are the best ones i've seen yet.

Yep, that's the best way. If you remove the wheel and it is indeed an HRE, it will have serial numbers on the back of the wheel. You can send those to Lon and he will help identify the wheel sizing and build date.

They are TSW Nurburgring's. Lack of concavity is a tell tale sign of the TSW's..
