Real or replica?

Are these real? How do you tell?

Black FJ Wheels on Ebay.

Cheers,

They should have a item number or something on the back side and that should tell you the authenticity of them I believe.

Did you send them a message and ask if they are authentic?

It's interesting they didn't give a part number anywhere that I see.

They have those posted on Reno Craigslist too. I think on the craigslist ad it said they were authentic.

On the Reno Craigslist ad it also said if you call the phone # ask for the parts department. Makes it sound like a dealership trying to get rid of them.

I doubt theyre fakes unless someone can point out some other fakes rolling around the web.

Someone bought some replicas and noted how real they looked. They he tried to sell them passing them off as real and a member or two almost buggy them.

Mr. 4x4 ended up banning him, but long story short....some replicas look pretty close to real things. An easy way to solve this is just send the seller a message and ask....

I'm only one year into my Tacoma love affair.

How about this website and wheels?

Looks like this site is operated by Elmore Toyota in Orange County.

Anybody have feedback about this company? Looks like these wheels are legit.

Thanks,

Salt

Since the wheels use the same mold, even authentic black wheels have the silver wheel PN cast into the back. Toyota then adds a sticker showing the black wheel's PN. It's all a stupid game IMO.

Are the lug holes in authentic black wheels also discolored like this?

They are a legit dealership. I worked across the street from them at Pep Boys in '82.
