What did you pay for them and where did you get them from?

I think new BBS wheels are around the £1200 and that's size dependant.

If they are real surely they should have the BBS stamp on the back of the wheel, and some other manufacturer data?

Where did you buy them from.

When you say they're having issue fitments, they definetely are A3 wheels they've sent you (e.g. to fit the right hub) - what kind of fitment issues exactly?

If they are reps, next question is.. Did you pay genuine money for them? If so, someone wants their legs breaking if you've been conned.

Looking at the pictures I think they are fake - compared to mine, the font is slightly different and larger plus the spokes seem to have a sharper edge compared to the more rounded style of genuine ones.

Dont know what these are as there is too much of a concave thing going on in the middle of the wheel, edges of the spokes look too sharpe as well.

have just had it confirmed by the uk supplier of BBS's that they are fakes the writing not BBS stamps, BBS's dont actual make this size and ofset, the rim protector is not the right sort, no part no. on the BBS centre caps, CH003 stamped on back is for a vauxhall 17"

you can see the fitting issue in the two below photos

thats ridiculously cheap for 19" CH Blacks with premium tyres. Should have clocked that really! PWMotorsport (official UK BBS dealer) charge £1300 for just wheels.
