Yes, the orginal genuines command quite a few extra $$$ to make a sale.

They were about $3k with crappy rubber when you could buy them from dealers.

All the rims are the same size whether they are front and back!!! And yes, 8" for styles and 8.5" for originals.

I had styles before I bought originals and brand new I paid $1250 from The Tyre Factory

There's a couple of differences from the originals to the styles. The styles have thinner spokes and aren't as deep, the styles have a silver tickford wing centre cap whereas the originals are a champagne ford centre cap, and the face of the rim is more dished on the originals than the styles. A trained eye will definately pick them but a lot of people have trouble. Definately a nice rim though
