Original or replica Toyota rims

Hi Guys Does anyone know how to tell the difference between an original Toyota rim and a copy ? Gumtree is full of okes selling 17" Hilux / Fortuner rims but they are not genuine Toyota rims. If a guy is telling you it is genuine how do you know , other than buying at the dealer for crazy money........
