How can I tell if my BRMs are the real deal?  will they say something? are they stamped? certain width?  I have black BRMs w/chrome lip and outlines and center but don't know if they are "original authentic BRMs"....

The replicas from Flat Four are alloy and come in four or five lug. Here's a quote from a Mini Forum about the BRM.

 

Quote:
 

These Magnesium alloy wheels were supplied to Speedwell by the Racing Car manufacturer BRM in the mid to late 60's. Presumably this was something to do with the fact that Graham Hill was a long time member of the BRM F1 team among others. Reputed to be amongst the strongest and lightest wheels ever made for a Mini they dissolved very quickly in the wonderful British weather and are practically impossible to find today in any condition.
