Stamped on the inside, thanks, i'm not taking them off the car.

i hope they're fake, they're missing centrecaps, and i get the feeling oem ones from bbs are at least 100 each.

Do the center's snap in or screw in?

^^trade you for 15 inch alpina's (can be fake, couldn't care less. I'll trade you for fake alpina's even if these are real)
p.s. supernaught, if you have MSN, add me, its the address under my profile.


edit: i dont think there are 15 inch alpina's, even reps:(

Just to answer quickly.... snap in centers are legit for BBS RS wheels. The Koenig reps have screw in (and only come in 16 like you mentioned.) Although, real BBS RM has screw in, so it can all be very confusing.

+1 on RMs. If they are they will be stamped VW also.

I dont think rota makes something similar to bbs rs. Rota bolts can be used other then that its would be easy if you remove one of the wheels and check it out

the under-centrecap part of the wheel is completly blank, so they're not real bbs.

now i gotta find out what they are
