FTR's are ONLY in 16". Aftermarket ones were made by ANZ and are not available new anymore.

There were 15" in both EF and EL, BUT look nothing like the FTR's

The only reason they have become known as 'FTR' is because the ANZ 'copy' was called FTR.

the factory ones are only available in 16"

the Copies are available in 16 and 17" if you can find em.
but the copies arn't *exactly* the same.

Yeah the copies don't have a lip on the edge of the wheel like the factory ones and they are a different color
