Question bundt Cake differences?

I've got two MB's with these wheels, one set chrome and one plain aluminum. neither set have any markings on them. I just got a 450 SEL that has the same 14" wheels but they have Brosol or something and 'Made in W. Germany' written on the outer edge of each rim. Is there a difference between the this set and the others (without markings) other than the obvious? I recognize Brosol as a manufacturer of VW carbs and fuel pumps but I don't remember them ever making wheels....interesting.

Original Bundts should have a Mercedes insignia on the inside of the rim -- aftermarkets won't. There are many different aftermarket varieties...

Most aftermarket Bundts have markings on the outside surface of the wheel. Some have the brand (Ronal, ATS, etc.) or even the wheel size in raised letters. OEMs have no outwardly visible markings.
