^^They do look great on the black, stealthy :) I'm considering either a candy blue or the Kona, need some color again. My charcoal gray Mazda6 has worn me out on that color.
I guess my best bet may be just ordering my car with the painted wheels when I'm ready to pull the trigger. Have to sell the current house and get moved into the new one before I'll be buying, hopefully in the next 4 months!

BEst of luck to ya, and hey, you could always have the wheels painted gunmetal!

I think those wheels would be sweet in a sterling grey color, on the wheels themselves that is...

Holy cow. I was looking at partscheap for the info and they have $250 as list. Either way they certainly aren't cheap. $610, that's insane.

Well, yeah, I mean that is the FORD price lol, which is always more, but if the OP is going to order a Focus, then just checking the box for the wheels he wants is the cheapest and easiest way to go.

what would be a good price to get a sonic blue titanium with those wheels?
Sonic Blue Titanium is 22,700
Wheels 295
Destination 795(boy has this gotten out of hand!)
23790
-2000 current rebate
21,790

how far down are the dealers wiling to go, can I get this for 21,000 or lower?

If you can get a Ti with those wheels below 24000, It would be a good deal IMO...Do this, build one on Ford.com, take 750 off their quoted price, and that will likely be the dealers sticker price. Then take off your 2000 rebates, and you have it. that being said, I have seen some east coast and west coast dealers taking 4000 off Ti's without negotiating! Look at some San Jose Dealer websites for irritating price drops (because I already got mine)

Oh yeah, destination charge is only going higher as diesel, toll rates, and truck licensing all jumps up, the latter two an attempt by the states to raise money...if only they could find a way to CUT their budgets, not rainse costs for US, but thats a whole different forum lol..

so 23,540
- 750 discount you stated
- 2,000 rebate
= 20,790
Sounds reasonable to me

I think you'd have to order it like that, the dealers all have the multipoke and 5 spoke std wheels in stock...
Funny how the wheels look grey there too...

BTW, have you checked out the different blue options? candy metallic and Sonic(aka Kona)

The OP was smart to post the original question because as has been pointed out, the actual wheels look NOTHING LIKE the wheels on the web site. Well illustrated by the two photos he posted. But when I was web shopping back in April, there were no real wheels to look at yet. I imagine Ford got more than a few buyers who were shocked when they received their ordered car with black (instead of grey) wheels.
