Buying new wheels tomorrow - what do I look for?

Hi everyone.

Buying some 20inch alloys tomorrow, apart from general condition are there any markers that I need to ensure are there to mark them as genuine Land Rover? Adding an image of the style for your reference

Will have Range Rover on the outer face of one of the spokes.

Will have the Land Rover Logo on the inside of the wheel on the back of one of the spokes. There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer😜😜

I think there is a weight rating for the wheel too, but I can’t remember what it should be. 2011 Range Rover Vogue SE 4.4 TDV8

Hey guys need some urgent advice.

These are the wheels no Land Rover stamp and some peeling plastic centre caps. Does this look right?

Urgent help are these fake?

Looking at these wheels and no Land Rover stamp and crappy peeling centre caps. Are they genuine or should I step away?

Doesn't that style have ' RANGE ROVER' stamped down one of the spokes on the outside?

I'm reasonably certain that those are aftermarket copies, not genuine LR wheels.

Dunc. The life you have is the only one you'll get; make the most of it.

They do still say Range Rover on the front. But the lack of Land Rover stamping is worrying me

They do, but copies might have Range Rover on the spoke too.

I wouldn’t worry about the centre caps if the wheels are OK, though I’d be wanting the genuine ones with a Land Rover stamp and part number, purely for the weight rating. Rangies are heavy, and if you are hard on the brakes and clobber a pot hole, you need to know the wheel isn’t gonna shatter.

Hi Everyone,

thanks so much for the feedback, i am pretty gutted as i did a 200mile round trip this morning to see these only to find that they are not genuine even after confirming via phone.

This is what makes this forum great though the wealth and knowledge on here really does count for a lot.
