Bought this wheelset. Not sure what it's made of (AL or MG). Only has "S5". While I wait for PVM to get me info, does anyone know what this wheel is made from?

Go to an inconspicous area of the wheel and remove a small piece or shaving; put a torch to it -Aluminium will melt at a certain temp. Magnesium will flare up and burn.Caution do it in a sand pit or box.
That particular model; S5 (means 5 spokes) ,May have been Al not Mg
