    Hello,

    Nice wheels, but I think you're mixing the originality a bit. Both Futura and MAE are made by OZ, but it's two different wheels so the center caps are incorrect. The center caps can be switched between these wheels, but they are slightly different with individual cast numbers;
    • Futura caps cast #M298
    • MAE caps cast #M296

    I think a potential buyer would expect period correct caps for that asking price. Here is a set of refurbished Futura caps;

    My information is based only on everything I can find on the internet. And based on that, I have understood that there were also rare MAE Futuras, ordered from the factory by MAE with those center caps.

    Hmm, alternative facts you know, there is no MAE factory, only OZ for those wheels. The wheels looks great, it's just incorrect caps.

    If you want to replace those caps, I can find a set of Futura caps and do a swap with you on the MAE caps - supposed they are original. One of my caps is bent a bit, so I would a like a replacement and can keep the others as spare. PM me if it's interesting.

    Ciao

    Yes, I know that there is no MAE factory. I meant that MAE ordered those wheels from the OZ factory as they are at the moment.

    My information can be wrong because there is no solid source, but I know that there are people with the same understanding.

    These look similar to the OZ Futuras I built for my SEC.

    This is not a big issue because it's impossible to go wrong, people know which wheels it is. But the MAE/OZ mixing is a common misconception. Take a look at eBay, it is a true mess, mostly due to the interchangeable center caps. The same with the later MAE Crown Jewel vs. the early MAE wheels - which has no additional name other than just MAE.

    Your Futuras looks great, so GLWS!

    At least we can be sure that they are Futuras and made by OZ factory.

    Thanks!

    Re: FS: MAE/OZ Futura 18"

    Confirmed they are made by OZ Racing and they made them branded as MAE (in the original design with the single cap screw and raised cap centre - cap part # 283 or later sunken cap centre)
    The style which were sold as OZ Racing Rims had the later style cap with the disguised locking screws which are the most desired caps - as per the above pics posted
    The actual forged centre design sold as MAE are the same design centre sold as Futura's (except for the cap design)
    They were sold in 17inch and 18inch diameter (and probably in other smaller diameters but i have ever only seen 17" and 18")
    Oz racing also sold that same style rim with the single lock raised centre cap as "Hamaxx Motorpsort" badged cap

    Here is a pic of my OZ Racing forged centre's
    The cap you show in your pics of the rims is the sunken centre version in either original cap or aftermarket made cap (of which i also have a set) that sinks the centre cap badge area rather than it being a raised centre where the badge is glued on.
    I am pretty sure i sourced the same caps as you have on from somewhere over your way from the guy who has them spun up in metal also (aftermarket ) with the choice of badges.

    I also own a set of later style OZ/Racing caps with the disguised caps locking screws (they cost me a small fortune for those caps) which will be fitted to my centres - requires screw holes to be tapped to the centre to convert to those later style caps.

    My forged 17" centres were made to same exact spec as the split width OZ/AMG centres for W126/R129 chassis in ET18 front and ET17 rear so i can just swap them into any of my AMG rim sets which is handy.
    I am going to use them on my SEC widebody project so i have the option of the AMG look or Futura look in 17 x 11" rear with the 335/35/17 tires / 17 x 9.5" front with 255/40/17 tires all on hand.
    Both forged centre styles look good in WB deep dish version

    Nice rim set you have in 18" version and good luck with the sale
