Real or repop?

Real or repop?

Value?

Thanks

s2ms:
Original.

On OE 10-spokes the indent between the spoke ribs run the entire length of the spoke up to the inner circle. On repops the indent stops short of the inner circle. Originals also have cast-in lugnut "washer" pads, most repops don't have this but not sure if that is the case for all of them.

deathsled:
Sharp eye for details.  I love these little nuances that sleuth out the imposter.

As I understand it, they have been repaired/welded on the outer edge. Any value? Set of 4 turned up for sale in Europe.

Thanks

98SVT - was 06GT:
The tops of the spokes on the originals was rounded off (as cast). Shelby's repops were sharp. He powder coated them black  then turned the spokes and rim to expose the bare aluminum. He also turned inside the back of the rim. Some of those didn't clean up completely and he considered them seconds. He gave me a set of the seconds for 843.
