Rim identification?

So I just got this set of wheels from a seller from craigslist when he sold me his bike as a whole. I don't have a ruler with me at the moment but if I did, I could give you some measurements. This is all I have for now until tomorrow when I get proper measurements. The back rim is "unmarked" (as described by the owner) with just a picture as shown. The other rim looks machined. I'm not too knowledgable in rims so help a friend out =]]

back rim





front rim





EDIT: let me trya nd fix the links lol

Any help is appreciated =]] Let me know if you need anymore information!

I would have said IRO Cold Fusion rims but IRO builds their wheels with high flange hubs.


So I'll go with 30mm Kinlin rims. Or Velocity Fusion rims.

If you are planning on selling them it is not necessary to know the name of the rims.

They're Vuelta Zerolites. I helped a friend of mine peel the stickers off his and distinctly remember that little "zero" logo.

Naw, I was going to keep them as spares. Just wanted to know who made them out of curiosity =]
