Please see photos of the wheels and tires for the 2012 50th Anniversary Edition Shelby Cobra Slabside below. Thanks in advance for your help and consideration -- Sincerely, David

Default Knock-offs

David Wagner or Nick Acton might be able to supply the knock-offs.


This is a photo of my 50th Anniversary knock-off.

I'm not sure why but every current wire wheel knock off that I've seen isn't a very good copy of the original ones. The lettering and arrow are different and I don't know why current ones can't be like originals. It's the kind of thing that bugs me though!
These were a PAIN to find!

Pretty sure David sold his inventory to Drew Serb:

I don't see knock-offs listed, but you might try calling.

The originals are a nice part.
I agree repop are not too desirable

Default Original set of 15x6 70 spoke wheels

I have a set of original wheels in good shape. My v8 Healey would not know the difference between these and repops. They are silver powder coated.
