OEM ST Wheels on an SE

Hey ST guys. Been reconsidering the wheel/tire combo lately on my '12 SE 5 speed. I got the 17" machined and painted wheels from the factory with 215/50R17 tires. I've been thinking about going to 18"s. I was told to consider the ST OEM take offs. I would plasti dip them gloss black. Couple questions:

1. Do all ST's come from the factory with 18"s?
2. What size tire do they come with?
3. Are the wheels on the market frequently? How much should I look to spend for a set of wheels? Looks like a new set of the style I was looking at would run me around $600.

1. Yes
2. 235/40-18
3. Fairly easy to come across. I paid $350 for wheels with half tread tires. On here people think they are gold. Check craigslist and local fb groups. Bought mine from a MS3 guy.

$2500 for wheels? That's a little much in my book. Plus I am looking for the Y spoked ones.

Craigslist and eBay yielding nothing under about $180 per wheel.

That's in Canada prices for stuff is a lot cheaper up there I heard from a friend but hate to say that's a lost for whoever is selling them. How about everyone stop saying you can get them cheaper where you live I am just stating how much you can get them at the dealership where I live and how much I am taking off the price I could say I am selling them for 3800 with the rubber the way they are now. Brand new rubber and new rims from dealer at 4100$ so whatever if you can get them cheaper have at it. Don't really care to hear where and how much cause I am sure the condition they are in and where you live matchs prices around where I am and the quality of my rims. Sorry if it sounds like I am being a jerk but tired of people saying I can get them for 150 or 500 for a set that is BS or the people selling them don't really need of care for the money.

Well good luck on your sale but no need to justify your sale. The market will be the decider, you probably won't get that asking price on here but maybe you'll have luck other places.

From what i've seen, silver y-spokes are usually $400-700 depending if they have tires and tpms, gray y-spokes run about $100 more. And the premium optional wheels (the black with machined face) are about $1000-$1500.

You could score a better deal on any of those if you watch and wait enough. Check this site, the specific focusst site, facebook pages, ebay, etc.

Yeah I'll keep an eye out on a few places. I'll also check CARiD which apparently has a lot of wheels. If I can't get a nice set for $500, I will probably just plasti dip my current wheels.

I woild be leaving the performance tires on the rims.
Hate to burst your bubble but the wheels were only $495 on the sticker price for the car over the base rado grey snowflakes and included the red painted calipers.

That was separate from the $4995 MSRP for the ST3 package over that of the ST1.
