I installed them without removing the wheels. I did jack up the back end for more room. It would be a lot easier with the wheels off though.

And inside this drawer, it would be segmented so you can store all your items neatly - car charger, pen tire-pressure gauge, compass, emergency phone, first-aid stuff, etc.
Put all my stuff in a travel bag. Snug and convenient. Easy to get to, even at a stop light from the drivers seat.

Darker silver looks good on ST wheels

I think the darker silver on your ST wheels looks much better than the bright silver on the ones sold in the U.S.

I'm not sure if it's even possible (at a reasonable cost), but making the metal (looking) molding under your windows that same color might look good, rather than bright like it is or black like on the ST. (Maybe Focus_Ben could Photoshop one of your photos to see what it might look like.)

That Red Candy looks so good with those wheels -- Ford really should make it available on the ST. I thought I liked the style of the Titanium 18" wheels better than the ST's, but seeing the color combination on your car may be changing my mind.

If you buy ST in Europe you can choose between darker or brighter rims, dark ones (Ford call it "rado grey") are more expensive and they come with red calipers. Don't you have that in U.S ?
The silver stripe below windows will stay shiny, it fits my winter setup with bright 17" alloys;)

Fast pic of my signature from another forum to show the color match

Thanks. I'm unsure just yet. I have one idea that no one has done before, but need to stash some cash for it.

I've seen a couple of the dark gray wheels on here, but mostly the silver ones. Might be on some package or something.

My foot won't slip (Or maybe my driving style not wild enough )

Here is the link , it's in traditional chinese only
But you still can view the photos , it will show you part number
Maybe your dealership can order it for you.
http://goods.ruten.com.tw/item/show?21111229599686

Part number:AM8M5J 2D106 EB

It took me about $20(US dollars)

But beware:
The brake pedal cover is one piece design (Rubber and metal cover already attached)
So, it's not easy to stretch the rubber and clip on brake pedal....I got some blisters on my fingers and failed
Then, i asked local dealership to install it for me when i sent in my car for first time service (Free of labor charge )
