    Hello... are folks interested in a group buy of Enkei RPF1 [17x7", 43mm offset] wheels? The color options would be gold, silver, bronze, gunmetal and black. We would need a minimum of 10 sets ordered to make it happen in the 4x108 bolt pattern to fit a Fiesta. Personally I would choose gunmetal to hide the brake dust.

    Specs of the wheel:
    17x7 +43
    73mm hub bore
    15.15 lbs.
    Price would be under $1000 shipped

    Here is the "I'm interested in these wheels" list:

    So we just finally received word from ENKEI Japan..
    We have some sad news… Due to them not wanting to create a new mold to do a 4x108 they will not make any size in a 17 inch RPF1 in Fiesta ST bolt pattern wheel for us.. They are stating that the 4x108 is a size they will never run in an RPF1

    I would have gone in for a 17x8, but after about 8 months I decided to roll with TD 1.2 wheels, rpf's would be a great option if it actually works out

    I'm very interested as I am looking for a set of lightweight wheels this very moment.
    If this were to happen, any clues what the price would be for 4 wheels shipped?

    What company is this group buy going through? I tried through Oakos Automotive about a year ago and Enkei refused to make them and there's a thread on one if the Fiesta ST forums with quite a few pages of information there.

    I was also told(before I was told they couldn't do it) that the "SBC"(gunmetal) would cost a little bit more than the other coatings.

    I would be interested in 16x7. Too hard to get 225s that won't rub on a 17. Also they should be lighter and cheaper...

    this group buy is via Oakos and Enkei makes a 17x7" 25mm offset RPF1 in a 4x108 but that won't work on a Fiesta. The 17x7" 43mm would work and would be legal for the Street [formerly known as Stock] category in SCCA Solo but they need ten orders to make it happen in a 4x108.

    Who are you talking to at Oakos? Ian?

    Anthony. He replied when I asked if they had the Enkei RPF1 in a 4x108.

    So how are you going to work it bc I feel like we need prices so

    1-get ten people
    2-get prices shipped
    3-make sure all ten still want to move forward?

    Oh I updated the original post.
    Specs of the wheel:
    17x7 +43
    73mm hub bore
    15.15 lbs.
    Price would be under $1000 shipped

    If I'm not mistaken the hub bore of the Fiesta is 63.3mm.
  18. eRic

    eRic Active Member

    that is correct. hub rings will be included with the wheels.
    OE 2014-15 Fiesta ST wheels are 17x7.0" 4x108mm with a 47.5mm offset, 5.8 in. backspacing, 63.3mm centerbore and weigh 22.5 lbs each.

    This, a RPF1 in a 16 would be awesome, lighter and would fit the 225 which seems to be the size to have.

    I'm possibly in for 17x7 but would 150% be in for 16x7.

    Possibly in if you do 16" so I can have 225
