    How to tell replicas from OEM?

    I'm going to look at some C5 ZO6 rims in the next few days and I was wondering if there's a way to tell if there replicas or the real thing? Is there a GM stamp on them like my T/A WS6 wheels? Is that easily duplicated?

    The seller is only asking $600 w/tires, seems alittle low if they are OEM in the condition he says they're in.

    This info might be useful to others for future purposes as well.

    Thanks in advanced.

    If they are OEM, they should have the GM stamp on them like you mentioned.

    That's what I hoping, and that the replicas wouldn't have them. I imagine that would fall under some sort of copyright infringement?
