they look sorta like older Passat le castellettes, but those were 7-spoke.
You entirely sure they're OEM? I've never seen them.

Well the VW logo on the backside of the wheel kind of gives it away. Its also got a VW part number on the Volkswagen box it came in. It also says made in CANADA. They are OEM obviously rare aswell.

backside of the wheel...you mean stamped into the alloy? Or just the plastic cap? Do they say Votex anywhere on the wheel? Usually if they were OEM'ed by VW, the manufacturer will stamp the wheel too.

They are B3 Passat GL wheels. Not rare, I beleive the name of them was "Hammer" but I could be 100% wrong on the name. They are not le castellettes, AKA Syncro rims.
I see some in the classifieds often, or try 800wheels.com or the junkyard

Those are passat estorils, or better known as "hammer heads". Most of the time they were 4x100. but these are 5x100, these are in fact rare (in 5x100) IIRC. these came on B3 passat VR's as an option. I think thats right pretty sure. correct my ass if im wrong please.
