Fomac also competed for the high end market, and that is also a possibility, but I would gamble they are Raybestos, look closely I seem to recall their signature was in script, and very fine lettering.

yes she had her name ingraved on them peggy young o ok i got you now i looked at all 8 wheels and nothing im afraid to take them apart cause my dad might kick my a**
