ZHP 18" style135

I am very interested in the styl 135 wheel, and I would like to know how to determine whether it is a OEM or rep?

Is there a "13" stamped on the face by the lugs for the OEM?

Please help!

I do believe my OEM 135Ms have a "13" on the face . . . I'll check when I get home! Another easy way to check if a wheel is OEM or rep is to look on the mounting face; it'll have BMW marked on it.

In those pics it looks like you can see a bit of OEM silver under the (apparently) chipping gunmetal paint.

He told me they are "snow water" just some kind of dirt, instead of chipping.
After I paid, he told me they are in gunmetal , which made me doubt of it.
man, I am so worried about it.
