Normally I wouldn't want to waste a whole thread on this, once I get the answer I can delete it. But does anyone have any idea what wheels these might be or what this style is called at least? I feel like I've seen them before with this 5 star pattern. I just bought them and would like to find out who makes them so I can get some center caps. Only info I saw on the back is size, weight limit, and DOT Approved. They are 15x8. Think I might have seen this style on some 80s street warrior cars. Any info is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Looks similar to the Fittipaldi 5 Star, but I think those had “Fittipaldi” etched on one of the spokes. Prime Wheels also had a style similar to that.

American racing made some like that as well... IIRC the model was “hammers”.

Prime was another brand that had a wheel just like that.

Do you know what the bolt patterns are? That center bore looks huge compared to my spoked ARE wheels.
There should be some sort of manufacturer marking on the back somewhere.

Those wheels look to be uni-lug. I bought new Prime wheels in 94 for my new Silverado, but they weren't uni-lug. The 5 triangular openings seem to have a sharper corner toward the hub not rounded like your pic. That style of wheel was so common in the 90s I got tired of seeing them.

I'll have to measure the bolt patterns and hub size. They might just be some cheap knockoffs, though they do say USA in the back.

I think the ones American Racing made were called Sledgehammers, based off of the Calloway Corvette. I appreciate all the help guys. I'll posted up the measurements when I go out and buy a caliper later.

I would call them dual bolt pattern since they are probably 4.75/4.50
Uni lugs had offset washers that made up for different bolt circles so it would only have one set of 5 holes with an oval shape centered around it.

I think from what I read unilug wheels have like a ridge for the washer to sit on inside the hole. But if they don't have that ridge and the space around the studs is like .6" then you use mag lugs with a thick flat washer that goes for them. I could be wrong. Someone correct me if I am. This is my first time using such wheels. I just bought a set of mag lug nuts for my new Turbine wheels at the autoparts store.

Guy behind the counter had no idea what they were and didn't think he could order them, but I found them in the lugnut section. I hated the clueless people at the autopartsutoparts store here, you have 3 old ladies working there and 2 guys that no nothing about cars and want your year and model for anything even if you're just getting an air freshner. Lol.

The holes on these look round in the pics though, not oval. I'll have to head to my storage later and check.
