If the wheels are without tires, a real minilite will seem very light 
for it's mass (it is about 60% the specific gravity of aluminum).

If you want to get real busy, you could dunk one in water, measure 
the volume, weight and calculate the SG, which would tell you for 
sure if it was magnesium

I recall seeing "minilite" cast on either the backside rim or centre 
as well, but it has been many, many years since I've set eyes on a 
genuine wheel, so a lack of that is no indication.
