What wheels are these?

Hey,
Just wondering if anyone can quickly spot what wheelset this is. Looks like something pretty cheap to me, maybe Swift Arriv's or something of the like. But it would be nice if they were a good wheels as I am thinking of purchasing this bike. He is asking 250.

They look like Campy Shamal's but I'm sure they're not, or else he'd be asking a lot more for the bike.

China is good at making bike parts .. ROC & PRC.. then shipping them around the Globe..

Appearing like something like the Italians may have made .

Its a pair of wheels , trendy low spoke count.

They certainly do look like an old set of Shamals

The Shamals appear to be a deeper profile and don't appear to be as rounded where the spokes exit the rim.

Yeah, they were 650's. I let the deal go as I was out-bid (my highest bid was 200). I researched quite a bit on the wheels and decided, as well, that they are not Shamal's. They look very similar, however.

Thanks for your input.
