I believe there is some kind of authentication mark/code on the back of them, I would double check them for damage either way

From what I've seen around the internet, replicas will have imperfections like bumps, dirt that's been painted over, and the paint on the back of the wheel (towards the vehicle) will be half assed. Those are just the kinds of things I've read.

I'd imagine they would weigh more as well. RPF1's are generally between 14-17 lbs depending on diameter and width.

Ask for pictures of marking in the back, should say Enkei. Enkei's are already affordable dont even know why people buy the reps.
