Look a likes if you can call them that will be 17"

The genuine ones are 16X7" and have a GMH part number (92034995) on the back of one of the spokes. I don't know that copies were ever made other than those shocking looking 17" ones.

So what's the going price for them?
They're in excellent condition with Goodyear Eagle Entura'a about 90% tread!

Did you ever think that the reason there are so many around is because they made a heap of them.
VL Group A, VN SV88, VN SV3800, VN SV89, VN SV LE, VN Clubsport, VG Maloo. These models total just over 2200 sets of 5 rims used. Then you have all the rarer models and options packs that also used these and the fact that they can still be bought brand new from Holden dealers and have been fitted to all sorts of other Holdens bought new over the years since the VN. The market place is not exactly big enough to sell copies in 16" as the market is already flooded with second hand sets for sale and new ones if you still want them.
I am well aware of the 17" copies but am yet to see or even hear about a set of 16" copies.

Corsa is right there are no 16" copies, only those ugly 17's that don't even look like walky rims.
