Does anyone know how to tell if the wheels are real. For example I'm gonna take a look at some BBS RX2s tomorrow and I need to know how to tell if indeed they are BBS. Same goes for other wheels. I"ve always kind of wondered about this so if you know please share.[hail]

Well usually "fake wheels" replicas wouldn't have the engraved or embosed BBS logo on the wheel itself.

The most they can have is BBS Center Caps, but no engraved or embosed BBS logo on the body.

weight of the wheel, ive seen some fake rims out there before, not bbs, mainly japanese wheels for hondas and stuff, like fake mugen and spoon, as well as advan... those even had the logos stamped in them, just know the weight of the wheel youre going to look at, find the weight online if your worried and then weigh them once you see them...

I've kind of thought about the BBS emblem but weighting them is something I could've never thought of. Thanx
