I love the gloss black over the polished finish. These 19's also look like 20's...

Here are a couple of pics, compliments of EAS.
That is SWEET, and I agree you need some 380mm rotors behind there.

Thanks again for the help

Look more like forgeries to me given the BBS sticker. Assume they are cast. Are they actually certified to meet JWL/VIA?

maybe it's just me but the spokes look a lot thicker. i personally wouldn't rock them because they're reps first off, plus everyone would know they're reps if you aren't dripping with money or sponsored

I do agree with some parts such as lip/diffuser. But fake BBS FI's you get what you pay for...

I'd be concerned for my safety on fake FIs, there is not a whole lot of metal there to support.

Waiting...still...for my real ones...

They are handling very well so far, I must say, with all potholes we have here and I am surprised how light they were, even if they are replicas. I would be more concerned with the runflat tires I have on them, they are moving constantly sideways and that with the original wheels as well...
By the way, they are JIL/VIA approuved,...

when you see real ones in real life, you will easily spot a fake one from then on. there are a lot of crazy details thats a replica will not capture.

Doubt it. Most companies are willing to falsely stamp their wheels with the JWL/VIA logo. Too many actually. If they are really VIA certified then the distributor/manufacturer could provide you with a VIA certificate number which we could easily look up on an online database. I have a manufacturer's login for the database and can see every individual wheel model that has been certified. There are not a lot of names on that list.
