I got the 16" rims from Ford to match the full size spare (included in 18" Performance Pkg). No sense in having 3 different wheel sizes. Hate the look of them though.

Likewise! The offset of the TireRack steelies are perfect too. I want to get them and use the snow tires excuse but there is really no need for them in the Bay Area.

I'm actually thinking of switching to 205/60R16s instead of keeping it at 215/55R16s as I can get a deal on them. It looks like from my online research that it would be off 1.5%. That means at 60 on the speedo id be going a hair under 61. I imagine that would put my odo off a bit. Dunno if that would be an issue when it comes time to trade and the odo statement asks if it's the correct mileage? Any ideas/thoughts? I also figured the 205s would be better for winter tires because they are a bit thinner and I've been told the thinner the better in the snow. Dunno of 10mm would make a difference in winter driving though.
