i'm looking to buy a used set of rims and would like to ensure they are the real deal and not some knock offs. can anyone tell/show me any identifing features of a factory m68 rim. what is on the backside of the rim that would prove it's a factory rim and not some cheap knockoff.

any markings such as BMW casted into the rim. part # stampings? realize that the fronts should have the ///M logo near the centre hub, but i suspect that even that can be 'cloned'.

i'm sure Alee can post a few pics. :)

thx...

I was thinking of getting another 5 just so I can take another full set off the market. :D

You and the Hunt's, trying to corner the market. Those of us around long enough know what happened there! :yikes:

thx Alee...knew you could come through for me.

i'm glad you don't do any cross border shopping for M68s. u'd clean this country out of M68s with ur dollar going a lot further here.
