Any thoughts on these wheels?

While thumbing through my Jan 2020 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines again, I saw the article on page 22 about Ron Krier's 1969 Hurst Olds. He had aftermarket wheels on the car I've never seen before- Rocket Racing Injectors. They kind of look a little like the 1978-81 Olds N78 aluminum wheels. Do they come painted gold like the 1979 Hurst or 1980 442 wheels? Or are they plain aluminum? I know they come in sizes larger than the 14 x 6s on my 1979 Hurst now. Any thoughts on these wheels?

They come as cast, and can be painted gold (or any other color). Does look similar to the 1979 Hurst wheels. Has anyone purchased any Rocket Racing wheels? Are they junk or a quality brand?

Personally I like a machined or polished lip on a rim for some contrast but with that design there is no line of separation between the center and the outer rim so you are kind of stuck doing one solid color.
