Can you identify these wheels?

Hi everyone, I was offered a set of mountain wheels, but I don't know what model or make they are. They look pretty nice, though. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks.

Dunno... Velocitys maybe? Looks like their design. Roughly $50.00/per when new.

Perhaps a better pic would help.

I would start looking at Alex or Bontranger based on the spoke pattern. That's definately a WAG though.

The offer was $120 for the wheelset, which came on/along a beater-of-beaters women's Schwinn. (Her boyfriend donated the wheels.)

Like I said, they look like entry level Velocitys due to their design and structure, but that's about all I can tell from the dodgy pic.
