Picked up a set of reconditioned 2010 OEM 19" GT500 Wheels...

19 x 9.5 in hypersilver. I think these wheels look GREAT!!! I bought all 4 from wheelership.com, which claims to use the only ISO/SAE certified recondition company in the USA. The said the color should be very, very close to the original color. I saved a TONNNNN of money rather than buying new. Anyone have experience with reconditioned OEM GT500 wheels?

Awesome. You bought a reconditioned set? If so, where from?

These are OEM wheels, just stripped and repainted/cleared. Why do they not look as good? Have you seen reconditioned and OEM painted wheels side by side?

how is anyone supposed to know what they look like without photos. If you're going to show something off, the basis of that phrase is to "show." With pictures.

These aren't replicas, they're the FORGED 19x9.5 Shelby GT500 OEM wheels. They were only offered for a year I believe, and not sold as an accessory part, so they're very very hard to find.

The 18" version of this wheel (slightly different color) is much more common and do have replica versions as well. The 18" versions are not forged and are significantly cheaper and easier to find.

I bought a takeoff set from eBay with a few hundred miles on them. Paid about $900. Considering replacement cost from Ford is about $1500 a wheel, I didn't figure I did bad.
