L405 Turbines. Are these genuine?

Going to have a look at an L405 Vogue SE tomorrow. From this picture, can anyone tell if the wheels fitted are genuine?



I've read the wiki on these but can't tell with my untrained eyes!

They don't look quite right for turbines.

Genuine ones are diamond cut and those spokes look a bit "fat". One spoke should be very clearly thinner than the other.

Do you know what size they are? I think genine turbines were 21 or 22", never 20's. 2017 4.4 SDV8 Autobiography

They're 22".

The spec list on Autotrader lists one of the options as 22" turbines. Perhaps they've had a standard refurb with no diamond cut faces. 2008 Brabus S Class D6

I think they are genuine, but as above - have been re-finished in silver - none came from the factory finished like that, but a diamond cut refurb is more expensive and a lot of places can't even do it.

It does look like the spokes are slightly different thicknesses - it's more obvious with a diamond cut face, but if you look carefully....

It also depends on the angle - if you look at the spokes here, they look thinner & fatter at different angles.

i think the only sure way is to have a look on the inside of the spokes to confirm the LR product codes.. ... - .- -.

Before you drive it ask them to please put the right number of wheel nuts on the wheel...... Whistle

As Stan says, best way to tell is to look on the back.... they seem to have tpms though so chances are decent.... There is nothing that can't be fixed with a hammer๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ
