I have a black st with red calipers and I think they woud look great but Idk if Ford Sells them and they are ridiculous prices elsewhere. Still unsure
Just buy aftermarket wheels that are what you really want style wise, also aftermarket wheels are usually lighter than OE.

If you want the red painted brake calipers you must get the optional wheels. I love these wheels on my SB ST. Of course you could always paint the calipers any color you want later. Personally for $495, I thought this option was a good value. Especially since I am not fond of the standard gray wheels.

I painted my calipers red on my 2013 St. Do you know if I can purchase the rims from Ford without purchasing the car?

The premium wheels weigh about the same as the stock snowflakes, somewhere around 26 lbs. They are more expensive than similar aftermarket wheels. I agree, it's hard to find wheels that look as good as the premium set, but Enkei some options that are close.

Alright thanks, I will look into them and see if I can find any, but I agree, the premium are hard to beat.

OEM Ford parts wheels ARE NOT PAINTED.
SO if you choose to buy the wheels new from Ford Parts, they will cost retail $700 or so each.
The cheapest one can get Ford parts, like from dealers who discount and are mentioned here..
Is about $350 each.. and they arrive with no paint.

So then you have to paint them.

The original 'snowflake' ST wheels same thing from Ford parts. no paint. BUT,
the original OEM snowflake IS available from Ford Racing, painted gloss black,
for about $200 to $225 each
eBay has OEM wheels.. typically from junk cars. So you have to watch out for bent and damaged rims.
eBay has sets and singles..

The golden place for OEM wheels is your local Craig's List.
Sets of four off the car are plentiful enough to make it worth watching your local or nearby big city
Craig's List until you find a set you want. It might take six months of watching.. be diligent!
