Are those original RAYS?

I would like to check the authenticity of this wheel, is this original or replica of Rays wheels?

Its fake. Real ones have "made in Japan" engraved in the front, not "rays eng".

Also, If you're not sure, don't buy from unknown shops. Shop at stores that normally sell legit wheels. Real volks aren't cheap, and if you're getting a real good deal on them, they're most likely fake.

Pay a bit more from a legit store, and know that you're getting the real deal.

Also, those would be a replica of the T37V mark ii, not the mark i

TE37s are sold under the Volk Racing brand. Not RAYS.

The tiny holes in the structure are from cheap casting, fake

RAYS is the parent company to Volk. Volk is RAYS' forged lineup. Authentic TEs come in boxes that say RAYS Wheels on them.

in art class, the teacher once told me

"if there's bubbles on the surface, that means there's bubbles inside! and bubbles inside mean your clay is going to explode in the kiln.

in this case,
