cobra r/cobra r replicas

so im buying three cobra r's from a friend, he had them and got hit and one was smashed so hes selling me the other three, only problem is they are replicas and the 4th i ordered last night is real, are they identical or extremely close, or does it just matter on where the replicas are from, any info would be great, thanks

they should be pretty close. I don't know why you didn't just order another rep?

I have replicas, and the worse thing about them is the number of weights it took to balance them. Of course, this isn't a problem at all. Just let the tire place handle that one. The "Product of China" on the box didn't really help me out much, but i got over it when i got my bank statement.

You can get center caps from many different places and they should look just about the same the only thing that might look different are the wheel coloring because of age
