.........Has struck.........so decided I wanted to change my wheels, everyone seems to have Bolas. I really wanted Genuine RS wheels preferably 19's but I dont like the thought of spacers and with the glorious pot holes around here, I was slightly concerned. 

 

So I was really happy when a lovely gentleman who lives less than 3 miles from me popped up to announce he had some Genuine 18's. Arranged to go and have a look and by 16:00 they were on my car. Immaculate condition, just need a good clean and PS4 tyres all round  :)

Look great mate, I'm pretty sure we were FB messaging last night about my 19" RS wheels but being 200 miles apart was always going to be tricky, seeing how good they look on yours is making me think about getting mine refurbished now.

"Genuine 18's"

 

I didn't think Ford made RS alloys in 18"?

"Genuine 18's"

18's were part of the winter pack.

Looking into a set for mine - those actually look pretty decent on the grey (which is what I'd hoped) - are you running spacers at all on those? Are the offsets comparable to the standard ST alloys - currently have 20mm to clear front brakes and would ideally like to ditch them - but at least go no bigger. Otherwise i'll look into other options (Pumaspeed Tracklites being one potential)
