techart wheels real or replicas?

I'm looking at some wheels which the owner says are authentic techart and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what symbols/markings are on them. I believe they're called formula 1 (the older cast ones). Thanks.

Regardless for whether they're real or knock-ofs, the Techart wheel that you're referring to is the heaviest cast wheel known to mankind. Not recommended.

Do a search and you'll see just how heavy. Like 40lbs or something.
