Re: EL GT rims

roughly $600/rim from ford (thats if they even still have them, not sure), or a set of copies will set you back around $1k or so.

There are genuine ones going on Ebay atm, IMHO its far cheaper (and more practical, how pissed would you be if you scraped a genuine one on a gutter) to buy a set of copies.

EDIT: Sorry, just read your post and from what i gather you dont want genuine ones. In that case, try www.tyrefactory.com.au. A lot of E series guys have dealt with them and apparently they're pretty good.

Re: EL GT rims

exactly the same bar width (i think the copies are 7.5" whereas the genuine ones are 8" or something like that, someone who has them will be able to tell you for sure), and the copies come with tickford centre caps, whereas genuine ones had the ford logo on the centre cap. apart from that, exactly the same.

Not sure on what company makes them.
