Does anyone know what month in 2009 Ford started putting the Black wheels on the ST. Ive been looking at a few Ford Direct STs mainly around August/Sept 2009, but as they dont supply photos of the cars, I dont know which colour wheels they have on. Im assuming they started after a certain date / chassis number.

Any ideas??

we ordered in October on the 09 spec and when the car arrived the dealer was baffled it had black wheels.

Thanks to the forum I dicsovered that privacy and DEATC was now standard so got the money off the original agreed priced, theres a post about the spec and when it came into production somewhere which is why November rings a bell. Seen a few cars on here that were delivered in December with the black wheels.

No idea why they did this as our poll seemed to show black as being the less popular choice.

i have seen a pb
on camp with black alloys and they look totally different to the press photos. They are very glossy and I went for silver as my car will be sea grey so may look out of place.

Not as bad as the pink
my daughter has on NFS Shift lol
