Flip side would have the porsche part number and a fox head logo.
I agree they look too shiny for polished alunimum, some repops are chrome plated.

I bet if you flip them over in place of where the part number should be will read MAX LOAD. We call those baba-ga-Nuke's

Seller states Fachs or replicas were. Made in the 80’s and 90’s. Any recall of that? I don’t and I hung out at a Porsche VW aftermarket shop in those days.

Top right. Just because it seems to be the odd one out.

The ones in the 80s had lots of texture between the pedals because of sand casting and where very heavy

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) top right is certainly different than the others. Note the rounding of the cut outs near the centers..... which the real ones should have. I would estimate 3 fakes and one real; but the surest way is to get photos of any markings on the back - there should be a Porsche part number and possibly dates.

The top right looks to be be the real one, one of the telltale signs is the width of the petals near the center, the top right appears slightly wider, which should be the real Fuchs. Rear castings as mentioned should be verified to confirm. As for them being too shiny, real Fuchs shine up nicely...

American Eagle made Fuchs reps back then. I had one which made up a set of 7s and 8s (the other three being genuine). OK, but heavy. Very.
