That's some crazy looking vee-hickles! Good find though, liking the wheels on the blue one and that's an awesome graphics set/airbrush job on the orange one

I had these 5 spoke split rim type 18s on my Mk2 pre-facelift when I bought it, replaced pretty early with ST 18s though as they weren't in great nick...

There are websites available that alloy you to select your car model, then select all different sets of alloys and it gives an idea of how they look...I'll try find one...

Thanks very much Stephen, have you seen my 'Project' thread? Went through my mods in there so take a gander if you're interested. I just gathered the mirror caps and indicators up on ebay...covers were even different colour so it was way cheaper to carbon wrap than colour code! Standard mirrors apart from that, no power fold, and I tapped in to the wiring in the standard side repeater. Sure send me a PM or post in there if you want any further info, on that or any of the mods. Don't wanna hijack this thread just with non-wheel related chat ya know.

 

Matt, here's an example of a website I was talking about. Can only seem to use the pre-facelift shape though, but I'm sure there are better sites, I just can't find a link on the forum and I'm unsure what terms to google, like 'visualise alloy wheel'! This one might get you started though...

I really want your ST alloys for my 2009 focus zetec. Where did you get yours from and how much were they?

Must say, they do suit the car well. Mind you I think the facelift ones are even nicer again. Lenny has them on his Zetec S and got them new from Ford...can't remember the exact price though. I got mine second hand from a local gumtree listing...£140, genuine Ford Ronal wheels, two good tyres and two just legal. I'm planning to have them refurbed in the next month or so hopefully, just need to straighten out the priorities first!

Yep, that's no tyre, and no centre cap or wheel nuts either, not sure about valve!

I really like those. I was after a set of either those or genuine ST ones when changing the aftermarket ones that came on my car, coudn't source the BBS ones second hand anywhere so settled for the STs.

there doesnt seem to be many aftermarket alloys for our cars but remember that Jaguar and Renault alloys fit our cars! mine came off a Renault megane! I really wanted some compomotive MO's 5 spoke or Rota GTR's but they were either not available or too costly.

And Volvo have a 5x108 PCD as well. Seen a C30 with ST 18s on it a while back, looked well.

 

The STOC website may be a good place to keep an eye on as those guys are fond of changing wheels and that. You've a better chance of getting aftermarket ones there if someone's putting a car back to standard, or vice versa and getting Ford ones if they're 'upgrading'.

 

There's a guy on another site selling aftermarket 18s, but I'm sure he was on here once upon a time too, maybe as Mr Grumpy or similar. Sal, think you know Tommy don't you?
