The Tyre Factory here in Perth sold them to me for $210/wheel. Copies, of course.

The idea of copies is to make them identical... It's inherit in the word 'copy'.

Originals have thicker spokes, as in depth. Also the centre caps of the originals are champagne ford ones, whereas the copies have silver ones with the tickford wing in the centre. And no, original centre caps wont fit on the copies.

Well I guess that makes the ones presumed as copies more to be imitation El GT rims! :lol:

I got my copies from tyre factory in bayswater and they were 1500, tyres (marshell's), lock nuts, and lots of free bees!! I was happy with the price - but the service was a bit lazy - i had to go back into the workshop after leaving to get my old rims back - they were lazy as!

did the originals come in alloy too? or were they only champagne? I love EL GTs but champagne would look crap on white.
