2ltr alloys price?? Replicas or Not?

What is a fair price for a set of 2LTR alloys in good condition that are polished?
How can I tell they are not replicas? Are the 914's bolt pattern what they call a 4 X130?
Thanks for the advice...

Look for a VW logo, a stylized fox-head logo, and a 914 part number on the back side of the wheel. The part number is 914 361 011 01, though that last grouping may be "00" on some wheels.

Swap meet prices seem to have held steady near the $400/set level. They tend higher with lug bolts (the short ones for steel wheels are not safe for these alloy wheels!) and center caps, lower without.

The bolt pattern is 4x130mm; four holes on a 130mm circle.

Appearance wise...do these look like originals?? I will check for the serial numbers on the back.


Seller wants 400 for set of 4 with tires...although the new tires will probably have to go because of shipping costs.

The originals were not painted when they left the factory. However, many dealers painted the recessed areas before they sold the cars, and many owners painted them after they bought the car.

The aftermarket ones start out painted.

They could be aftermarket, or they could be original...

I have sold 2 sets on eBay. One set sold for $375 but they had a fair amount of curb rash and scratches. The 2nd set sold for $500. they were in good shape and it was a set of 5.

Your photo looks like an orig Fuch that has been painted but the stamps on the inside is the only way to tell. Also, real Fuchs will feel light and will weigh about 29lbs with a tire mounted or 13lbs without (this can vary depending on the tire). I beleive the aftermarket ones are about 4lbs heavier.

Lastly, I've sold 2 sets of lugs and each set sold for $75

The fake ones have no lip. Your's appear to be original.
