If and when I buy an ST, I would love to do a straight-up swap for the 17" wheels and tires from the 2013 SE Appearance Package - if anyone here is willing and interested (and reasonably near DC, of course).

looks great. I've seen a few sets go for around $1k, I hope you got them at a good price. Either way, awesome combo.

Looks sharp, but the weight of the ST wheels really turns me off of them.

I guess I'll roll what I have, but if I ever locate a moneytree, I'd love to throw some brushed/clear 19" HRE P40's on my car. Sooooo sexy and simple.

The handling is much improved thanks to the wider, lower profile tires. I think that's a worthwhile tradeoff for any weight increase. I wanted to go with an OEM wheel because I've had problems with the finish on aftermarket wheels in the past and wanted something that would last me as long as I have the car, also without breaking the bank. I was originally looking at wheels from the 2013 Fusion but when these came up for a good price I couldn't pass them up.

Sean05 - digging yours with the drop.
Thanks it was tucking tire then i went down to a 225/40/18 and no no more tuck. Got a really nice stance when rolling
