Fake Wheels?

Hello All, I recently bought a 99 civic hatch that came with these 8 spoke wheels with stretched tires. I replaced them better fitting enkei wheels and put an ad up on craigslist to sell them. It was brought to my attention that the wheels are fake. Can someone confirm if they are fake or not and what a fair asking price would be.

Thanks

Re: Fake Wheels?

try and find those wheels on the company's website and see if you can spot any differences?
or pop a tire off there might more markings there on the barrel, or on the inside face of the rim there may be more markings on the hub or spokes

Re: Fake Wheels?

Those look like fakes just by visual comparison. Rays Engineering makes Volk racing wheels. The wheels you posted say "Ravs."
Furthermore Rays Eng does not offer 16x8.25 sizing on the 8 spoke wheel model number CE28N. Which is what you posted of.


Here is Rays Engineering website with the real ones.

Below is a link of a thread on another forum that has a debate with pictures to help you.

Sorry to say but yes those look iffy. Try checking on the inside of the barrel of the rim typically companies stamp/ engrave their info Nd the wheels spec on the back.
