Default Modern T-Type/Hot Air GN wheels

Has anyone seen or heard of 17" aluminum wheels that look like the 84 GN wheels?

If so please point me in the right direction.

I am in the market for a replacement set of GN wheels. I've found aluminum clones of the steel GN wheels. They are nice and probably what i will go with but I really like my 84 GN wheels better. It's been about 2 years of searching and I am getting tired of looking for something that does not exist.

I think the Western Vectors (?) are pretty darn close ... you just have to paint the area between the spokes black...

They are almost exactly perfect. But they only make them in 15". I contacted American Racing Wheels directly and they confirmed that the only size available is 15".

Thank you for getting back to me.

Lightbulb Re: Modern T-Type/Hot Air GN wheels

I know of a person that had some wheels made that were larger "clones" of 84/85 GN & 86/87 T wheels in polished aluminum. Frankly, I don't think they looked like a very good "clone" of them. Let me see if I can determine where he got them. He said they were interested in selling more if they could get the market for them.
