Are these ansen sprints?

American racing sells a replica of the ansens, but I think they look like crap. The only one that looks even close to the original ansens are these ones...they have that 3d look to them. The american racing ones look like just a wheel with cutouts in them:ack:

Anybody else have a source for wheels that actually look like the original ansens?

yes, or a copy. The american racings are almost exactly the same.

Don't see a lot of differences. I like the wider slots on the ARs better. The "3D" look must be something in the picture.

Here is a pic of original ansens to compare too...the american racing ones don't have the "depth/3d look" that the originals have (in my opinion)

The SLT muscle mags are closer to achieving the look than the american racing ones, but they still look worse than the originals. If you haven't noticed, I love the original ansens.

the original rims seem to be quiet valuable:
current bid $2200

Can you guys see the difference in the "machined" look of the originals over the aftermarket ones? Not the finish of them, just the nice sharp edges and deeper slots.
