All, need your expert input,
Just bought my lovely wife a new 2018 Escape Titanium (maybe that way I get some time in my EDGE).
Now looking for winter rims. The OEM rims are 18x7.5 and very hard to find used ones as an extra set for winter tires. Options available:
1 - downgrade to 17" rims:
a- used OEM steels
b- used 2016 OEM 17" Alloys
2- OEM 18" alloy but a bit wider 18x8 (instead of 18x7.5) this increase the options available
3- OEM 18x7.5 from Focus (2005-2013) or C-max (2007-2010) still rare to find.
4- wait for a set of 2013-2018 escape 18" rims become available on the market.
I'm inclined for option 2, with option 2b as a second option.
