Saw a pair of 19" BBS LM Replicas on eBay the other day for about £500-£600...

What are peoples' opinions on replicas? These ones are obviously less than a quarter of the price of the real deal, but they looked good to me.

Do they weigh that much more? Is it obvious they're fake in the flesh?

I sense there may be some strong opinions on this one...!

I have heard they look good, weigh only a bit more then a real lm (2-3 lbs) and most people wont be able to tell a fake from a real one.

From digging around a bit further, I think a big difference is that the replicas are one piece, but made to look like 2 (or are the real ones 3 piece?).

Can't see them on ebay anymore - any idea where you can get them?

yeah that is the big difference they are one pice instead of two and the other thing is whether they will be strong enough with the lip.

only way to find out is try it :)

hmmm are some of those pics actual LM's though lol??

TBH I would love a set of LM's they are my favourite wheel, it took me nearly 3 years to find the perfect set of BBS RS for my MK2 Golf. Infact I still have them with no car to put them on hahaha
