Are these genuine EL GT rims if so or if not what do you guys suppose their estimated value to be. they are in good condition, a little bit of gutter scratch on 2 of them. [/img]Image[img]

the genuines have a larger centre cap, that is colour coded and has the ford logo on it.

Probably worth less than a grand then provided the tyres are decent. rapier was saying someone used to sell new copies for around the grand mark with s**t tyres.

depends on what tyres you have on them. Ive seen copies going around the $1200 mark with semi decent tyres on them. thats new.

And yes they are copies. It all comes down to the fact of how much someone is willing to pay though. I paid a fortune for my originals but they were what i wanted

they arnt worth the muck metal they are made from, stick with a quality brand name wheel , these wheels are weak and can break just by hitting a pothole , i have seen it many times , cheap 15" wheels are ok but when you start going to 17's and above beware of the cheaper rims

Fakes also have thinner spokes in terms of depth, are 8 inch wide compared to the 8 1/2 inch genuines and the rim is slightly more dished.....these are definately copies

ROH are genuine so they are a quality brand
