The one on the right looks like a standard kyosho r246 awd aluminium wheel. The middle does look very much like a PN bbs that was painted silver.
On the left some custom alu wheel you will no longer find anywhere except on auction sites very rarely and for a premium price. The Japanese TaGu used to make loads of cool wheels but no longer in business for years.
PN makes (or used to make) similar wheels as the one in the left.

Left red/white car are PN Racing MA010 Light Star Alm Rear Rim.

Right grey car are Volk TE37 by R246.

Middle blue/white car are BBS style by EagleRacing or GPM. There's a slim chance they're Square rims. Definitely not painted PN rims. Pn ones have 8 y's, ones on car have 10 y's.

Topcad and GPM made BBS style wheels for AWD. Either will be difficult to find these days.

The one in centre is definitely Eagle Racing. E.g.:

And you can still buy it on rcmini-z.com. Some of them out of stock, but some is available (http://www.rcmini-z.com/en/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=62_64&products_id=2131). And I know that they restock them sometimes.

Although they are very nice wheels, I know, I have many sets, the wheels on the silver car are NOT Team Atlas.
They are definitely Volk Racing TE37 by R246, I have many sets of these too.

Great thank you for the help, do you think by looking at the photos you can guess what offset I should get? I have a MA020ve 90mm chassis

Thanks again for the help and your passion for MiniZ

Hi I found the wheels that you said are the Rays :D. But, before I buy them I need some help. I was told by autoscalestudios to use 0 narrow front and rear for a MA020 chassis 90mm skyline GTR. However, I wanted to know if I could use .5 narrow front and rear ?

I am not sure if it is going to clear the front fender. I did get to test with my current wheels which was 0 wide offset in the rear and it was to big in the front. At least I know I need narrow in the front. :D

Sorry for all the info. basically I am trying to find out if 0.5 narrow offset in Ray wheels will clear the fender so I can turn the car left and right ?

Thanks you for your help and time
