Does anyone have replica rims? How have they held up, are they easily scratched, peeling fading etc???
Cheers fellas.

Yeah sweet rims mate.
I had replica BA XR rims on my EA for about 12 months before i sold it. They were fine. Think i got one scratch on them. They didnt peel at all. However, i saw a similar set of the ones i had that had all the front face peeling off.

OK, this may be a somewhat silly question but can I assume that there will be a significant difference in the quality/lifespan of replica rims, coz they are a few thousand bucks cheaper than genuine.
Or is it more of a brand name thing?
As you said jet ute, that they are both made in China.

What happened to the good old days when all of Fords wheels were made by ROH right here in Australia......Or am I living in the past?
