That's exactly what I want to do this summer -- black out the whisker, the white divider, and the front valance.

Then paint the side and rear grey rubber to match the euro trim.

They aren't on the car just yet, but I just got back from a 740-750 + mile road trip to go and pick them up.

Wow must have been a good deal to have driven that far?

New those wheels go for 180-354 a piece + 25-55 shipping from a ford dealer via ebay, + another 544+ shipping for new tires from tire rack for the o.e continentals, plus another 180 for or so for the tpms sensors = $1444 before shipping each of the parts or putting them together.

Could theoretically have made the trip a little bit shorter on the way there by crossing through Canada, but then that meant two additional border crossings.

These were only $750 with less than 2000 miles on them as far as I know (the seller said something like around 3000 km so divide by 1.609= 1864.5 miles)

Not bad for the cost. Plus there is the fun/ adventure of taking a nice long drive in the car.

Amen to that. I'm doing a 6hr road trip next weekend to visit my wife, who's out on a business trip. The in-laws keep telling me to take the train because it's a long drive, or to take her VW because it's automatic (versus my 5MT). I haven't even bothered explaining to them that part of the fun is the drive; I don't think they'd understand anyways!

I probably have to see if I can try and get an oil change on lunch Monday at the dealer nearer to the new office and see if I can get them to swap the wheels then if I don't want to wait until spring to see them actually on the car.

Thanks again for meeting me today to do the deal.

Again I've only ever seen this color with the se steel wheels, the sfe hubcaps, my wheels, the multi spoke 17" wheels, and the polished aluminum version of this wheel, but not the black painted and machined wheel.



That was what one that was in North Carolina looked like when my Grandfather took the picture last June when my Uncle was buying an Escape that he got rid of already as he goes through cars like no one else I know.
