|Texaswiley||Almost positive the stock 18" wheels are 55mm offset, I just replaced the Michelin 235x40x18 pilot 3's with 245x40x18 Continental Pure Contact. They are .3" taller, section width is .3" wider and the tread is .9" wider. Treadwear is double, they are 4 to 5 DBA quieter and noticeably smoother on expansion joints etc. The steering response is not as sharp, however with the original Michelins the cars seemed to be sensitive and touchy. I do not drive it aggressively but it makes it a much more enjoyable car to drive. Also in spite of the nearly 1" additional tread width I have observed no clearance issues and tracking is still good on less than perfect roads.|

|elwood125||The 19 inch escape wheels seem to be used on the euro fiesta. Looks amazing. Anyone tried the 19s on a mk3 yet ?|

The wheels in that pic are the 19" painted that I believe were standard on the Titanium in 2013, but optional for 2014. The ones on the Focus I linked above are these:
They 18" and optional on the SE for 2014. They may have also been the standard wheel on the SEL trim that was eliminated for 2014, but I'm not 100% sure on that. The titanium comes with an 18" version of the same wheel that is silver painted instead of chrome.
They do look good on his black hatch. If I had known I'd be buying my wife a used '12 Tuxedo Black Titanium sedan (personally prefer the hatch, but too good a deal to pass up) I would have probably bought them myself.

Are those these wheels?
If so, my God I need to rethink how good they would look.

2013+ Escape wheels fit well. A friend bought some 18" chrome take offs for his SEL Focus, seem to be the same offset as an ST wheel. Went with 225/40 rubber for them.
