It's so crazy how things work out..I just had my car in getting new tires and the guy shows me how all 4 of my gray euros are bent so I'm just thinking here goes more cash out the window. I've always wanted the Black Racing Euros to match with my Cobra hood, so to my surprise after getting onto to Ebay last night to do my normal SVT Focus search. I found a set of powder coated ones up for $450 plus $100 for shipping, he also had the make an offer option up so I asked would he do $400 and he said yes so now I'm now a proud owner of the kinda rare Black Euros becuase they never come down in price. I'll have pics up once I get back from my short vaca to MI

Haha I figured some people on here had to of seen em, yes like the one pic shows a few of the shakes have some spidering but I'm not to worried bout that. Its better than 4 bent rims right now and i really wanted to go powder coat since its very hard to beat up the paint. o and I just call it a vaca cause how much ive been working lately. I lived in Warren my whole life, just moved here in January, where are you at? I know the wheels arent rare..you just dont see to many with them on.

Lmao good question, these actually were my old buddies rims from in MI and I believe when I looked at them they were in good condition, even 1 was brand new but no clue as to how all 4 are bent. Now the 5 spoke SVT rims are very easy to destroy haha

lol you scared me here to be honest. Today going around an on-ramp quick I hit a joint in the road going around 55mph and squealing the tires a bit. Loudest thump I have ever heard. Drove fine though. Got to a parking lot and the suspension was all fine as well as the outside of the wheels. Ok I thought. THen you come on here with this story of bending them on the inside and I FREAK out. Go outside in the dark with a flashlight and luckily no bends anywhere on the inside either. Phew. Thanks a lot.... lol

Congrats! Considering of either having mine coated black with an orange rim or just outright getting a set of black. Enjoy.

Don't scrap them. You can have them fixed. And a suggestion

A suggestion, just buy the Ford Racing black EAP's and do a vinyl strip around it. After me buying a used set of EAP's and having them PC'd Im at $225.00 per wheel. Cheaper to buy the real thing.
Here is mine:

I now have black lugs.

Not to thread jack, but thanks for the suggestion. I'll have to look in to that.
