Are these genuine OEM wheels or could they be counterfeit?
Please note the marking on the close up.
What wheel locks would you recommend. Are there OEM ones that are any good?
Is there any reason why I should not use a K&N filter on a stock 3.0 motor?

Regards and thanks in advance

Patrick

They look like OEM wheels that have been polished down some. The edges of the spokes appear slightly rounded instead of sharp and the closeup of the marking is also not sharp, but appears to have been buffed down a little. The OEM wheel locks are made by McGard and are available through your dealer only. The reason NOT to use a K&N filter with a stock 3.0 is a slight loss of horsepower along with the possibility of ingesting larger particles that can eventually damage your engine.
