Greetings all.

I'm sure you'll have a link some where but can't seem to find just what I'm after.

I'm looking to hit up a set of Brembo brakes but want to use a set of standard Ford wheels.

This is a problem for me because I have 17's.

So what of the Factory wheels will fit?

Thanks.

18's are needed. But what style rim will fit (other than the FPV range).

I want to keep the plain look.

Cheers.

the only non FPV 18s i've heard of fitting are the BA XR 18" option wheels.

Thought they fit. I wonder what else will fit.

Cheers for that mate.

Pretty sure the BF optional/Ripcurl XR 18s I have are brembo compatible as well.

Any chance of a pic mate?

I'm not good with the option wheel names, but have seen the Stoke wheel and think it's alright. Just don't know if it will clear.

Will the GT-P 18" wheels clear 6/4's?
