Need help on Wheel ID!

Hi everyone. New to the forum but have a burning question. I ran across a set of wheels that a guy had on a c3 corvette. I bought them because I liked them and the price was right for a set of aluminum "Hurricanes" in decent shape. Here's what I know:

1) They where made by American Racing (as per the center caps)
2) They are 15 x 8.5
3) I have only seen these on Mako, Manta Ray, and Balwin-Motion Corvettes
4) I have not seen these on any other cars. Close-but no cigar.
5) They are NOT Camero wheels. They are slightly different.
6) There is a circle with a Y in the casting on the inside of the wheel if that makes a difference.

If anyone knows any information on these, I would greatly appreciate it.

Welcome to the forum.

Those wheels are period correct for early C3s.

Thanks for having me! So, were these part of some sort of package that was available or were they just one of the types of after market wheels that you could get?
