Default How to identify if it is a legit BBS rgr? Guru help please!

Soo... I've done my research... and i found a few reps that they made similar to BBS RGR (such as ASA, XXR) but i cannot find how to tell the difference. I'm sure there is a weight difference as the 18x8.5 BBS rgr are forged and about 18-19lbs. How else can i tell? BBS embossed sign, weight, etc? They are expensive so i want to be sure i'm buying the real thing. I only found how to tell difference between BBS LM and LM reps.

Please help me out! thanks!

Never seen that. Most reps don't spend enough money to afford extra stampings.

BBS part numbers are on the wheel and also all RGR's are made in Japan so they will also dhave "Made in Japan" molded into them ... if you would like to send me pictures of the markings found on the wheel I can confirm if they are knockoffs or not for you
