Can you help identify the Manufacturer of these replica wheels?

I have a set of 17" replica wheels with winter rubber for my 2016 e250. See attached pics. I know they are made in China and I am trying to find a supplier in the US or Canada for these in the event I need to replace one. I would also like the full specs including the ball seat radius for the lug bolts.

Photos are at this link: Pics ( or https://photos.app.*******/AoHpVDRH3FUWHnGPA )

BTW, I tried multiple times to both attach and include the photos inline this post, but it is not working for me. Anyone else having issues including photos in posts on this forum?

try to go advanced (next to submit reply or something) or click on manage attachments> My Albums (the recently uploaded ones will automatically show there)> if not, click on the dropdown on the left and choose from device. this time it will work.!


BTW, did you tried looking them behind the wheels? there will be etched on one of the spokes.

similar to this.

Thanks, still struggling to add the photos... I have 7 of them including various markings on the rear / spokes of the wheel.

I tried originally what you had suggested and just tried again -- everything you are suggesting, inline photos or advanced and then manage attachments --- and each and every time I am able to get the photos into the "upload photos" dialog (either by drag and drop or browsing to them), and I am even able to re-order the photos, BUT then when I click the upload button to process, I am back at my post with NO attachments or images. What gives? I am very familar with posting on varius other forums and adding images, and I have even tried multiple browsers here (Chrome and IE). I will need to follow-up with the forum administrators. Thanks

Just tried these steps: Manage attachments> My albums> upload from device> select them> upload.

BTW, I recently uploaded a few after almost an year. So, something might've broken and haven't got fixed. Try incognito window once and see it that works.

Just an example.

Thanks raja777m for your suggestions. As soon as I hit My Albums, I can see lots of pictures -- a lot of duplicates from the multiple attempts. So now when selecting the pics I want, and reordering, and then hitting upload, I do seem them inserted into the post below. And here they are!
Finally! -Thx for your help and I will relay this info to Bob on the admin forum, as it is strange that this is happening. Should be able to drag n drop or directly upload from my laptop.

I should have added that I am ultimately looking for a supplier in Canada or the US. Pretty sure I have found the manufacturer info, or at least distributor on Alibaba at the link below. Based on the pic, and specs that is the wheel I have reached out to them but been unsuccessful in trying to ID a North American supplier. I am also trying to determine whether the OEM lug bolts will work with these or if they require lug bolts with a different ball seat radius. My wife's Q5 has Hartmann wheels and these do require such.

Any thoughts on trying to determine a NA supplier?

Just an FYI almost all cast wheels are made in the same factory in China manufacturer is irrelevant honestly and 99.99% of replica wheels are one manufacturer using different names and or no name at all selling wheels with names like clsrep002 stuff like that

Thanks for the info. I am still on a hunt for more detailed specifications for this wheel, and the one thing I am trying to confirm is the ball seat radius for the lug bolts to validate that the OEM lug bolts with R14 radius will work. These definately do have a ball seat vs conical, but I would ideally like to know the radius to validate that the OEM lugs will work.

Does anyone know if MOST replica wheels are compatible with the OEM lug bolts?
