Default which set would you choose/worth?

Let me start off by saying that I don't know anything about wheels/rims and that will become very clear as we go along. The information about the rims will be in the pictures, as I took a few shots of the stamps on the inner spokes.

However, the two brands/models in question are Drifz Jade-R 18" and BSA-264 also 18" (From what I can tell)

Long story short I have two sets of rims from the previous owner. The real question is, since I don't know squat about this subject. Which set is worth more/better quality?

I plan to keep the better quality/more expensive set, and sell the other set.
So that brings up the question. Without taking condition into account, what would they both be worth?


Currently, the set on the car is the Drifz Jade-R.


Both sets, if sold, would be sold without rubber.

I am also not looking to sell them here. This isn't a "what is my crap worth" thread. I am genuinely interested in the differences between the two, if one is a better company, etc. Also to learn what all the stamps mean.

Since they are older rims, I can't seem to find out much about them. Anyway, to the pictures!

First the BSA Motorsport 264 Rims:
















What do these shapes mean? Anyone?



And this little symbol here? Anyone know what this is?


The Jade-R







Any idea what this means?

I would go with the BSA wheels on the basis that black rims do not go well with that color.



Then again I don't think anything would go well with that color. Any plans on repainting it?

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

Well, they are both black. One seems to be gloss, and the jade-r's are flat black. I was going to powder coat them, but I was going to stay black. Personally, I like the color scheme. Any idea of the worth of these? I'll probably sell the set I don't use.
