I actually don't like it because you can see all the scratches more and it's a little more distracting than black.

It is ideal for do-ri-fu-to (drift). Having a slightly front weight bias means it is easier to control the rear sliding and more fun. If it were 50/50 or rear biased, the handling would tend to be...

They have in the past but they seem to always put their logo somewhere on it if they do and the there is no logo to be found on these wheels. So I kind of doubt it's Enkei unfortunately.
