nope they're both copies from looking at those pics, the center cap should have the blue ford badge in it.

look in my gallery they're the real deal.

Real FORD GT rims are 17" x 8.5 wide.
Copies are 17" x 8" wide.

Cheers,
Jason

I forget to say, the size of the rim should also be forged in the rim on the inside.

cheers,

Not quite. Real item is 8.5" wide. Copies are 8" wide. The questions to the second set indicate that they are the genuine item width wise. I don't know anything about the centre caps on originals/copies.

Sorry my bad, pressed #7 instead of #8, then didn't proof read what i typed.

Center cap on original GT wheels are larger than the copies, the cap gets much closer to the wheel nuts hole. And original caps are not interchangeable with the copies.
