Need help identifying what rims these are

Would like someone to let me know who made these rims.

This sample is a 4x100/114. I forgot what diameter these ones were, I think 15". The owner of the car didn't know where he got them from, but the only comment he made on them was they were heavy compared to other rims of the same size.

My buddy had those back in the 90's... definitely not the Ronals E-SPEC posted. Spokes don't taper enough.. I'll see if he remembers what they were. Seeing him Saturday.

They'r definitely not the Ronals you're showing and describing. The spoke's center line is offset to give the 'windmill' appearance, if you know what I mean by that. While the Ronals are asymmetrical, the one I post is perfectly symmetrical.

I'll describe this a little more:
The center of each spoke has a defined edge on it, sharpest on the lip, roundest on the hub.
The shape of spoke is also triangular, where its skinniest on the lip, and fattest on the hub.

Here's a drawing depicting my explanation:
