Default Wheel mystery

Hey guys, I was wondering if someone could tell me what brand of wheels these are. Ive been trying to get some wide wheels for my Tamiya Taisan Porsche body and came across this but have no idea where to find these. Thanks.

The Taisan kit actually came with two piece rims that had gold spokes and the chrome rim. Check out Tamiyaclub.com; someone on there is bound to have a set.

Yes I have seen the gold rims. However, I have a question regarding that as well. Some of the gold mesh wheels I have seen have some of the spokes filled in with plastic for strength, and others seem like they dont. Have people gone in and cut the plastic fill areas? Or are these a different set of wheels?

the wheels on the porsche are kawada, and you cannot cut the filled in part of the tamiya two piece mesh wheel, as thats where the screws attach, most paint the pieces in with flat black so it looks like it is cut, I have done several tamiya mesh wheels that way,hope this helps
