Just put my 2023 order in and for this year, sadly, the blue interior package now requires the beadlock-capable wheels. Anyone see a reason why I couldn't buy factory 17 wheels (the oem non-beadlock ones) and swap them in? I absolutely HATE the style of the beadlock wheels.

Also, what a crap decision by Ford to force you to buy wheels if you want the blue interior!

Might be able to work a trade with a member here once you have the wheels in hand.

Nope, don’t see a reason but you can always sell them to offset the cost of your new wheels.

Just ordered as well. Planned on getting after market wheels. I’ll gladly trade you the factory standard wheels!

Thank you! I've been scouring for real-life pictures and they're growing on me. Gonna be a while till I get them anyway so when the time comes, if I still feel that way, I'll let you know!

I wasn't in love with them when I ordered them on mine but I liked them a lot more than the standard factory wheels. I can tell you they look much better in person so try and get a look at them before you spend any extra $$$ on aftermarkets.

I realized I could have been more helpful and actually sent RL pictures like you mentioned you were looking for above. Last pic is a shot of the back of the spare on the hanger F546A50D-44D2-4460-9C95-96847721AFF7.jpeg

Thank you! They look SO MUCH better live than they do on the friggin builder at ford.com. I think at this point I am probably going to keep them and avoid the hassle. Appreciate it!
