Don't know what brand, came new in a box with the car 5 years ago, they actually look like OE. I ordered the Minispares replacement. The CV boots are from MS right side is split, 5 yrs 10k or so.

The rubber from our major mini suppliers is absolute CRAP....I have a contact in Cypruss that has Old/New rubber I can source...and for these you have pictured above, I am trying to find similar boots to say a Nissan or something that WorldPac may carry.  Just need to stay away from this cheap rubber for the major vendors.
