Swapped Apperence Pack wheels for TSW's

Recommended Posts

Stayed with the same size, just wanted some lighter better looking rims and someone on the forum bought my stockers which made it half as much $.

They are TSW NURBURGRING 20"x 8.5" Gunmetal w/Mirror Cut. Tires are stock P245/50R20 Pirelli Scorpions that came with the Appearance Package.

The TSW's weigh 24lbs. and the stockers weighed in at 37.5lbs., a bigger difference than I thought, though the Fords are pretty much the same weight as most cast aluminum aftermarket 20 inch wheels.

They are pretty pricey, but after I sold the stock wheels it wasn't so bad. Very happy so far, noticing a bit more pep off the line and looks like mpg is going to pick up a bit too, and I think they look awesome!

If you have the AP wheels like I did, post them for sale here and you'll be half way there, there is a pretty big demand for them. Otherwise, yeah, it's a big chunck of change, especially if you're having to buy new tires too because you're changing whell diameters. Looking at close to $2K, though the 18 inch TSW Snettertons are $215 look similar and you could reuse your stock tires if that's what you've got. Check them all out on the Americas Tire website (what I did), it's pretty cool to look through and they have a "view on your car" thing like tirerack, but carry the TSW wheels tirerack doesn't.

Looks Great Traxiii.

I like those rims allot. I ended up not spending the coin for the TSW's and landed some Advanti Bellos for under $200 a piece and I wrapped them with a set of Yokos. I decided on 20's instead of 22's and compensated in tire height. Here are some photos. I plan on lowering it this spring to complete the look. It's the wife's ride and she loves the way it drives and handles now. She immediately remarked on handling and driving improvements.
