Default Halibrand Compomotive Wheels Question

I have a set of Halibrand Compomotive 15" 5 lug wheels on my Cobra. The car was put together back in the 80's. The wheels are two-piece rims, stamped "Made in England" on the inside of the rims. My question is are these knockoff replica wheels, or are they worth keeping? I want to upgrade to pin drives and am trying to decide what to do with these. I've attached a photo in my album. I'm a new member, any info on the wheels would be great. Thanks.

They are replica wheels. Compomotive did not make "Halibrand" wheels and Cobras did not use bolt on or two piece wheels. They did make the 16" "Halibrand STYLE" knock-off wheels for Autokraft for the AC MK IVs

Someone will buy them for a Factory Five or another bolt-on application.

They're a very good quality wheel, but it's hard to beat a pin drive wheel on a Cobra. Many of these wheels were fitted to Compomotive Cobras back in the 1980s, so I'm sure you'd have interested buyers if you placed them on the sales page.
