EB GT Wheels

Just a general question here guys, does anyone know if you can still get the EB GT look a like wheels, as I was told by a local tyre dealer that they are not allowed to sell them any more?

For what it's worth, I had my heart set on a a set of ED Sprint wheels and was willing to pay the silly amount Ford wanted for it. Then I was told by a tyre place that the wheels are no longer available. I was told the only other option was aftermarket copies which cost $2k for a set plus tyres.

I didn't get such a story from another tyre place, and I got a very reasonable price on a genuine set. It pays to shop around.

Dont know if they not allowed to make them still but when I bought my mags the person who supplied the replicas said he stoped making them.
I've got a set of 16x7 GT replicas.

Thanks for that guys, I think I'll just have to go looking at other tyre places. The tyre place I went to said that those type of ANZ (?) wheels, were recalled because of some law suit or something.

ED V8 GT FAKER!!!!

Need to do List:
- Got thermos, need to install.
- Get some paceys and duals.
- Finish Stereo
- Bigger Wheels
- More grunt!!
