@keith, which wheels did you upgrade to? Tires?
Sparco Assetto Gara
Dunlop Z2. 205/50-16
Got the package from tire rack, tires mounted, lugs and centering rings. Bolted on and all was perfect.
Hey guys. Just picked up a Tuxedo Black Fiesta ST today!!! All I wanted was Moonroof and Recaros, and the darker wheels were on it. Picked it up with 32 miles on it, and couldn't be happier!
And meeting my Coupe...
Love the look of the OZ... Might have to do that route myself

Got any more pics of that coupe online? Looks pretty sweet. There's something cool to me about that body style with ground effects…
My Instagram has a bunch. @mwobb

Here's my '14 in TB with Rado Gray wheels and red calipers, and matte black over-body Shelby-style stripes. I didn't order the car that way, but that was what was available to me.
The black stripes look good!
I agree. They are subtle and keep it classy. Seeing those pics reminds me I need to wash my car.
Subtle is right .Wouldn't have notice them in the pics had you not mentioned it.
Its very weird everyone seems to have gotten the gunmetal wheels and red caliper package.Is anyone else equipped with Red Recaro Seats? I wouldve loved the gunmetal wheels. I might just paint the calipers myself lol.
Matte black stripes on a gloss black car look bloody awesome. I'd be rather happy if that's how a car was available for me!
Rado Grey wheels are an option in Europe and the US. In Oz we don't get any options for some reason (the one-spec-for-all approach) so I've found a set through a member of this very forum. And they're on their way to me...
BTW, we got grey (fabric) Recaro seats. Again, no choice...
That's the ONLY option my MO didn't have. I painted the calipers with orange caliper paint, but obviously hadn't cleaned them well enough because it peeled off. Didn't care too much about the wheels since I plastidipped some aftermarket (and the stock) wheels in black. You can also get Plastidip in gunmetal and smoke (translucent dark gray).
If I ever get too pissed off to be arsed keeping up with the black, I'm going to have the whole car dipped or wrapped something stupid, like high-visibility jacket stupid.
Ha! Yeah, black would be a horror to keep clean. Looks amazing when it is, though. If all else fails, sure, wrap it! I had my (now sold) 170 done about six months ago. Still looks amazing - and with fewer stone chips than straight paint...
That's gorgeous. Wrap or dip can both be pretty amazing when done correctly and not by someone's cousin in their driveway.
Exactly. Now here's a sample of two styles (sorry for the Facebook quality - don't have the original with me). Mine and Byron's business/track car are wrapped, while the grey car is plasti-dipped. Yes, the whole car...
All that said, though, straight black looks sweet. Given I couldn't get blue, it was down to red or black for me. It just happened that a red one was available...
Drove 5 hours to get my black ST, was worth every minute. Couldn't be happier! Now time for tint, clearbra, subwoofer, intake, etc. etc. etc.
Get VHT Caliper paint and have at it! Just make sure you use brake cleaner and their primer first, and low-temp bake it. Don't bother with the brush-on stuff, it winds up looking like dog's breakfast, from what I've seen.
