    OEM wheels/tires trading

    For those who want standard OEM wheels (and tires) and for those who go 3rd party wheels and want to get rid of OEM wheels (and tires), please feel free to exchange information here.
    I'm the one that wants OEM wheels for DD as I keep forged/cup2 for track/autox.

    I will be looking to get rid of OEM wheels. I will be using my RS for summer only and will go strictly aftermarket.

    I'm also going to keep my forged/cup2 tires for the track....... but I have no desire to get the oem wheels for dd. Aren't they REAL heavy compared to the aftermarket? I'll put 18's on if they fit over the calipers and 19 if the don't. The OZ Racing wheel in 18" is 18.3 lbs compared to stock wheels at 25+ lbs. That's a big difference!

    I'll be keen to swap my Australian Spec 19" silver OEM for the dark grey 19" OEM's depending on how much postage and cash adjustment would be.

    Ask and answered this myself. I've already sourced, as best I can, as someone mentioned, a set of 18" or 19" wheels (cheap) and a set of Continental DSW all-seasons for daily driving while the OEM forged wheels and SC2 tires be reserved for a track day.

    I'm thinking i'll keep OE wheels and would like to have a nice set of 18s (preferably Ford) as well. ...guess I'd better get the car first.

    Assuming my order ever gets "Selected for Scheduling", I'll want to unload my Forged Wheels and replace them with something like I posted here, once any are made that fit the RS:

    https://www.focusrs.org/forum/18-focu...html#post50820

    I'm also interested in powdercoating said new wheels, i.e., Orange, if they come stock in some dull color. That, and paint the Brake Calipers Gold Metallic :-).

    Now if if I could get Seat (Cover)s in the color of the Pre-Production(?) ones shown below, with the lumbar-area blue stitching, my life would be complete :-), as the seat color shown in Ford's Configurator web page is just too dark and boring for this car.

    EDIT: Plus Window Tint, OptiPro+ (or whatever) Paint Protection, Clear Bra, and Locking Lug Nuts.

    Anyone relatively near my area with forged RS wheels looking to sell them can give me a shout. I'm looking to upgrade eventually, but I am willing to talk pricing and shipping if necessary.

    I'd be interested in a set of the base wheels to use for winters if the price is right.
