    Nice I have these in 16" but in red. Looking forward to seeing what 17's look like!

    Those were on the top of my list... until today I found out Tire Rack will have a batch of black 17x7 OZ Ulteggeras in stock January 15th. I'm actually going to have mine widened .5" to make them 17x7.5 so I can mount 215/40-17s and still have a bit of a rounded (slightly stretched) sidewall, which is the look I prefer.

    Those cost a pretty penny dont they? Also you can customize width lenght?

    Yeah, you are right, they ain't cheap. lol. But they look absolutely fantastic and are a tick over 16 pounds per wheel. . No, I have a place locally that can widen rims. They've done this on a few cars for me in the past, including on my supercharged 1999 Dakota (I went from 17x9s to 17x11s on the rears to facilitate a 315/45-17 tire). They do a top notch job. The only caveat is that Discount Tire wont mount tires on them. They say it is too much liability for them, which is stupid because where they place the weld is actually stronger than the non modified wheel). A 17x7.5 wheel with a 42 offset is PERFECT for this car. There is still plenty of room (I measured everything).

    I have these in 16x7 for my snow tires. Nice wheels, although I've already curbed 2 of them. :(

    I actually really wanted SVT EAP wheels in black, someone on one of these forums has them on a Red ST and it looks awesome but the price to weight ratio turned me off.

    Yep, me too. I love the way the black euro-spec SVT wheels look, but they are essentially a stock wheel (size and weight). Whenever I consider a wheel for one of my vehicles, the criteria is based on these three factors: 1. Wheel style (I'm stupid uber picky about wheels). 2. Wheel weight and 3. Wheel offset and width. Don't really want a 17x7 42 offset wheel. What I really want is a 17x7.5 with 42 offset. The choices are small right now. I REALLY like the Team Dynamics Pro 1.2 wheel. I can have that ordered to my custom specs. What I don't like is having to wait three months to get them and having almost $1,000 tied up for that long. :)
