Those are the rims from the European ST170. I think they look kick-ass, but I had to actually see them on a car first. HotRodWagon has them on his red ZTW, and they look great.

What Heather said.

Also, the SVT *is* getting new wheels for the 2004 model year. They have kind of a machined finish, and more of a chunky, angular hard-edged look to them.

[hihi] I think so too. But I prefer a painted finish rather than a machined finish. Painted wheels seem to hide staining and dirt better. Actually, maybe they are painted? Hard to tell from the pics...

That was directed to ZX3_Chick. You people post faster than I can type. [:I] But I do like the new wheels better than the euro package wheels.

Those rims on ebay are actually off an older model Ford, I think it's a Mondeo from Europe or something. They are definitely NOT European ST170 rims, because ST170's are thin 15 spoke wheels with a much larger centre hub. The ST170's rims are exactly the same as the Euro package ones sold on the SVTF in the US except for some reason the SVTF ones are gunmetal and not silver and I reckon the gunmetal ones look great). I think the ST170's in Europe are sold with both and it just depends on what colour car you get as to what colour rims are sold, although I may be wrong. Here in Oz we only get the lighter silver coloured rims on our ST170.

Yeah, they do post faster then I can type, too. As soon as I post something, there's like 3 other posts that show up before mine.
I really don't like those dark spoked wheels on that orange SVT. They look too plain for me.
