I like the wheels on the Sport trimed Escapes. It's black with a metallic ring around it. There are a few wheels on TireRack with a similar look as well as other partially painted wheels. I also saw a set that was black with a red ring that looked really sharp...

Me personally I would not spend the extra money to get a replacement set of OEM rims. I would spend that money and a bit more for a whole new aftermarket wheelset. But if money is the issue and you want to retain the same set of TPMS and tires, then I can see that argument.

Always a fan of chrome!!! It just pops on your black Escape. Black on black is just too much black. :D

Here are my ebay rims on my Jetta, they're black with a polished lip and machined stripes on the spokes:

So I guess I'm voting black lol

Tough call, if you have the chrome grill and bumper then maybe I'd leave the rims. Those black ones look good though!

thanks dasha!!! :D

and yea it really is a tough call. the chrome looks dominant but sometimes i look at the car (especially at night), and having it look all black looks pretty slick. i could still purchase them but i dont want be switching and spending all this money. the biggest thing for me would be the sensors...i know it can transfer over but to have them programmed again and all that....its almost not even worth it. and yea if i got the black rims id have to swap out the chrome grille.

Idk. I kinda wanted to keep it with original ford parts and not too exaggerated but maybe I'll make them bigger. By the way, your mods look hot. Nice combo
