I'm wondering if we'll be able to retain our extra wheel sets so we can use them for the winter time? Would be nice to know specs like stud spacing, hub size, and offset.

What'cha think?

I'm willing to bet we're still going to have a 5x108 lug pattern and a similar offset. Hub size may or may not be different, but from everything I've been reading the brakes are going to be big enough that 18" wheels are going to be the smallest that fit.

Keep in mind they would have to clear the new brembos ;)

That'll work for me. I bought a set of the Ford Racing gloss black version of the stock 18" ST wheels.

they haven't said the size of the brembos yet have they? an 18" will clear up to 14" brakes depending on the caliper. I can't imagine it will get anything bigger than 14"

No they haven't we have no idea what size wheels will fit yet.

I am hopeful the OEM ST 18x8 wheels will clear the brakes on the RS. I have my ST OEM's set up with winters for my ST and would LOVE to keep that set up for the RS. I run 18x8.5's for my summer tires now.
