The center does not look far enough back from the edge .  Take a look at the last picture . The chrome shine makes it hard for me to tell for sure but the offset profile looks wrong .  http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Magnum-500-Ford-Wheels-JK-14x6-For-1966-Hertz-Shelby-Dated-Pair-/253212024611 . I had someone contact me on some used wheels that I looked very similar to these that were determined to not be the Hertz profile even though identification markings seemed like there were. I am looking for a second opinion. I am going to try and get another picture of where the center is welded to the rim from the seller.   

Wheels in question.

If you want a legitimate wheel to look at, look at the below link being offered. It has the right markings and back spacing.  The seller knows what he is selling and is providing the critical information for the potential buyer to make an informed choice.  If the seller on this posted auction is not cooperating, I'd pass.  They are not legit.  The missing "C" is also not consistent with OEM wheels found on original cars.

The extra markings on the inside near outer rim have always confused me.  They could be service parts.  After looking at the auction, they look like the 66 GT350 offset.  Get the seller to measure the back spacing and be done.

Here is an excellent example of "incorrect" wheels with "correct" backspacing.  Notice the difference in front profile which can be clearly seen when the wheels are painted.  Also, these wheels have the FORD oval on them while correct Hertz wheels were made by the Motor Wheel Co. and have completely different markings.
