This is an aftermarket wheel. Somewhere on the rim you will find the manufacturer's name. My guess is that your wheels were made by Ronal, although I can't be sure.

I suggest that you grab a pen and paper and write down all the words and numbers cast into the wheel and post your findings here.

Those look like OZ Racing wheels to me. I had a 15" set which were body colored in Anthracite Grey. I remember buying center caps for the wheels from OZ Racing and I would assume they sell the key as well.

Check with them, they are actually a very large manufacturer of wheels for other aftermarket wheel companies like Fittipaldi, MSW etc.... Their customer service was excellent and pricing was reasonable as well. Do a search on google and put in O.Z. Wheels.

The key is basically a solid chrome cylinder with a smaller cylinder on the end of it offset to one side. Mine had a red handle similar to a screw driver.

Hope this helps.
