Re-posting here. Way off topic but they are taking up garage space!

Bought these Bullitt wheels to replace the stock hubcaps on my in-laws Fusion. He took it in for service and the A-Hole Ford dealer told him the offset was wrong on the Mustang wheels, and they were going to void his warranty if he didn't put the stock Fusion wheels back on.

Idiots. Like half the population doesn't put different wheels on their cars after purchase....

So the Fusion has the hubcaps back on it and he brought me the Mustang wheels to sell. Asking $400 obo. Putting them on Craigslist today. I honestly wish I had something to put them on...they are such a sharp design and the tires are like new.

Figured I'd post them here. I know Ford guys love these on lost of older cars.

You can run them on our cars with adapters.

They do have the same size tires I run on my Impala wheels.

They would look SWEET on the wagon!! Would love to have them, but distance would kill the deal!!!! Adapters would do the job.

How would it cost to ship them Greyhound?

Offset wheels DO put more of a strain on the suspension, so the company has a good reason to make an issue of it.

It's weird because they fit the car so well, and lots of folks on the Fusion forum have done this mod as well.



Idiot Ford dealer....

The sad fact is that the 'deep dish' look that we all love can't be done without adversely impacting durability and handling. That's why the manufacturers haven't done it. They would if they could.

The reason for this is because most 'owner' or 'aftermarket' modifications make the vehicle less reliable AND make it harder for the dealer techs to troubleshoot. They are trained to know the vehicle's stock wiring and design; other added stuff is not their area of expertise. Talk to a mechanic and find out how much they love 'undocumented' stuff.

While I agree with you about many aftermarket mods being detrimental to the cars overall
performance.I also believe that the dealers discourage aftermarket mods because they dont
make any money on those mods.They are more than happy to sell you a set of wheels with
a factory seal of approval at 2 to 3 times the aftermarkets going price.And those factory
parts are often manufactured by a aftermarket company so the quality is there as well.

They are manufactured to the company's specifications, so they don't adversely affect the vehicle. If you ever try to trace out wiring on an unknown vehicle, you can appreciate how much time it takes to do this. Mechanics don't have that much time.

I was referring to Mikes bullitt wheels on a fusion.Both ford made and with very little offset.The
only thing I see being effected is the braking performance due to different diameters and the
wheel and tires overall weight.All dealer service is just that and it makes more money for the
dealer.My dad got one of those $29.99 oil and filter coupons from his dealer and it cost him
almost 200 bucks to get his keys back.The dealers want you to keep coming back to them so they can keep making money from you after the sale.

I have never been impressed with dealer repair shops. That is one of several reasons I don't buy new cars.

Agree with you about that.I have not bought a new car over 20 years and only took them to a
dealer when it was under warranty.

Was running around and stopped by the house and got some good pics of the wheels up close. One is perfect, one has to tiny scratches on the rim, one has a good spot of rash on the rim, and one has two rashes on the rim. None are huge our gouged, but these modern wheels have rims that stick out beyond the tire sides.

When I bought these for the in-laws last year, only one had any rash. Looks like my mother-in-law rubbed them a bit herself. Oh well, they still look really good, and the tires are worn evenly and have a ton of tread left.

Penny test with Honest Abe



Two small scratches on one rim edge


Two rash areas on 2nd rim edge




Rash area on 3rd rim edge


Fourth rim looks brand new.

I like the rare chrome Special Edition wheels our GP has or I might. Only GT and GTP/SE cars with the hood scoops, roof rails, special spoiler and exhaust got these chrome wheels. Don't want to break up the "package".

Not sure It would make sense for me to get these if adapters are $375 (first quote!!)

Not a big deal! I honestly didn't want to haul them on the trip. I'm already scared what gas is going to cost...the lighter weight, the better!
