I have these 'Porsche' rims. How can I tell the true value of this rims? I don't see any markings to suggest they are real or imatations, I only have the center cap to go buy. Any info would be helpful. Thanks

They are called cookie cutters. I don't know if anyone has ever repopped them. Look up cookie cutter on thesamba to get an idea of value. Its not going to be close to fuch territory though.

They can actually sell for good money depending on condition/size etc
Sell them on a Porsche forum.

They should have a 911- part# on the backside somewhere.

Be aware those are true "mags" == magnesium castings, and cracks can be an issue.
If they are holding air you are probably OK, but beware.

I could go for a set in 7" and 9s....

Also note the 6" you have may be ET50 offset instead of et23, so they'll fit late cars and Ghias easier.
