This is what the real Campag hubs look like.

Problem with the rims are that the fakes are 50mm as are the real rims.

You can check for serial no on the rim but may be hard to find if it's covered in glue.

Gummibear thanks a lot dude. They definitely are fakes, the hubs clearly doesn't have the engraving marked on them.

Much appreciated.

And here is a pic of the genuine wheel. Notice the different spoke pattern for the rear wheel. Coupled with gummis pics, you should be able to spot the fake from the real article

Bad advice. There are a number of fakes with the G3 spoke pattern doing the rounds.

 

Be careful
