2009 SES & SVT EAPS help plz

ok ... heres just a random question

i kno the svt eap rims and the 2009 ses coupe rims look the same ... in fact the same style

ive seen the black ford racing rims ... the white rally rims ... the svts and the 09s .... now heres the question

is it the SAME color or are there variations to the svt and the 09s?

i might be getting a set off my friend who has an 09 (crazy aint he)
but im just curious if there is a variation in the 2

If you ask Ford, they tell you that the rims on the ses are a special color, and "not anything like the European variety." The name of the color slips my mind, but basically gunmetal.

I'm new to the Focus world, but from my limited experience, the white version's are Roush wheels, black ones are a Ford Racing part, and the svt's I don't know about. Hopefully someone less ignorent than myself can help you a little more

The wheels are exactly the same (minus the center caps of course), however the color is different. SVT versions are a dark metallic grey... the new wheels have more of a shiny mirror finish (though still dark grey) as opposed to a standard metallic paint.

Actually the Roush wheels are different than the SVT EAP/Ford Racing wheels.

Roush wheels can be found in gunmetal/grey and white, the offset is different than the EAPs and they have a different number of spokes.
