Looking at a set of Mercury alloy Wheels at auction on eBay and am having trouble identifying them. They're 25mm rims laced 24/28 to White Industry hubs. Mainly curious about the weight. Seller doesn't know and the closest i've found online is a set of '11 M-alloys at ~1300gms, but they're 20/24. Any ideas? Or any known issues with their rims? The hubs are solid ,of course, and the spokes appear to be lasers.

Pretty sure Mercury changed their rims from XR200's (the 1300 gram set) to a wider rim (still Kinlin?). Weight is in the 1500 gram neighborhood now.

Don't think the earlier ones used XR200s. They're listed at 25mm. Deeper than Kinlins.

Not open mold from Kinlin or Gin Ter.

KinLin and GinTer are alloy rim makers.

"Open mold" is a term used to describe any tooling that is not proprietary.
