Ensuring BMW 405M Wheels are OEM

Hi guys,
I was looking to purchase some 405M wheels from someone on eBay and wanted to know how I can ensure these are OEM or replicas.
I have attached pictures of the part number (which seems to check out) but I wanted to know if there were any other things I can look out for to make sure these are OEM. The price for these are really good and I feel like it's a too good to be true kind of thing so I'm skeptical. Please advise, thanks!

These wheels have been produced in mass as reps for quite some time. Just assume they're reps and make your decision from there.

I can confirm the real wheels have the stamps in barrels, and not behind the spokes, also they are made in Taiwan. Unfortunately that all can be replicated and no way to know for sure unless you put them side by side with a known legit wheel
