Anybody run the ford racing black rally rims?

I tried searching, but didnt come up with much, so im wondering if anyone has these Black rally rims
on their focus? I have a black svt, so that is what they would be going on (i love the black on black "stealth" factor) I was considering just powdercoating the stockers to be different, but i thought the price of unmounting/pcing/mounting wouldnt be far off from having a whole set of new rims. (that way i could also use the stockers for some winter tires)

if you have dark rims on your car, and have pics id be more than happy to drool on them for you :) the only other color i can see going with, would be a dark gun-metal grayish, because I do like those colors, and their variants as well.

Im also considering straying away from the "dont attract attention" thing, and going with the white rally wheels. I definatly think they would look the best on the orange/blue foci, but im still considering it. (anybody have the time to mock up a photo shop'd pic?) I dont have any good daylight pics of my car yet though.

*on second thought... id probably rather stay away from gun metal colored rally rims, just because i would want to stand out from the normal EAP guys with the same rims*
Anybody know a good place to find rims? Im sure somebody makes a black rally wheels nearly identical for cheaper. cuz ford has 160 retail...anybody know what street price is?

wow that looks hot..... HHMMM.... now to find them for cheap. I was still tossing up the white rally's, but i think if i saw a photochopped pic of a black car with them it would change my mind.

I dont think I even need to look around at rims... I think i am just going to get those. I am just hoping i can find them somewhere cheaper than 160 a rim! (i have google'd it, but 155-160 seems to be what everyone is charging) does anybody know if they can sell them cheaper than that price? (i thought that was just like retail...and street price would be like 130 or somthin)

and are these just painted? I am a bit worried that they wont hold up, and will chip and look like junk after a few months.

Those are my rims and car. Thanks Alex... I have had them for about half a season and they were used the other half by the person i bought them off of. They have held up quite well. I did not wash them before i put them away for winter. But they were washed a few days before. I have drove hard down dirt roads with them and they have not had any effect on the rims. I love them and since those pictures i have lowered my car. We will see in a few weeks how they look. (april 1st) I absolutly love them. The only thing is they are HEAVY. they are about 23 lbs with no tire. So i think they are about 27lbs with tire.

I just sent you an aim message (thanks for letting me know they dont fall apart, lol) hmmm 23 lbs ay? Im going to try and find out what stock svt rims weigh, because I dont want to add much rotating mass just for the looks.

** according to tire rack the 03 svt rims weigh 21.5 lbs each ** 1.5 lbs isnt that bad of a gain, but i was kind of hoping to go down in weight now up

The EAP rims which are basically identical except they're gunmetal are only $108 each. Can't beat the price. And once you get a little brake dust on them they'll practically be black anyway....

ya, but everyone with the EAP has the gun metal EAP rims, and I dont want to be just another svt... (even though the ONLY svt around my area, is an identical one to mine, i still want it to be different) now why there is a 50 dollar premium for black or white is beyond me.
