Wheel suggestions...?

My 2012 SE came with the steel wheels w/covers. It's time to change. I was able to look thru the forums to find suggestions for selecting my license plate mounting/framing options and I thought that went well, so I'm looking for suggestions on what wheels to go with. I've been skimming thru rim racks website and they have a ton of options, but this is a decision I get to live with for a while so I'd like to see what others have done.



I'd like to see photos of 2012's, race red, with black matte wheels because I'm leaning that direction, but all I've ever had for wheels have been chrome so hard to get out of the box.

I might add that I'm going to stay with the stock tires so 16" and I'm looking at a budget cap around $150 per wheel.

I'm kinda liking this option... click here

Ok...so no replies so maybe not as much enthusiasm over my initial selection. I'm thinking about these instead. Any "likes"?

What's up!

I'm thinking of changing my wheels as well.

Right now I have the Machined Painted Wheels 17'' from the Sport Package.



I liked the one that you posted, but I'd rather go with one of these:

All the best.

Don't forget about new car take off's. There could be a higher model focus= titanium that they replaced the oem wheel/tire assembly w/ others. That you could get fairley cheep.

For felixthecat - Actually, I've thought about that same thing. I've seen a lot of nice Ford rims out there and would like to score a set of take-offs if I can find them. I've been keeping an eye on craig's list and ebay. If you come across anything...post it.

Thank you for the feedback.

For renatogcarvalho - I like both of the alternatives you posted. I like the wheels that came with it too. Nice looking ride!

Thats when you go to your ford dealers & ask the parts & also the sales dept. The dealers are always changing wheels/tires. I've worked in many dealerships & there is always a back room filled w/ wheels & tires.
