hey. sorry to start another thread, but i read all the threads and wanted to list all the wheels that seem to fit the csrt4s without the use of wheel spacers. have i missed any?
i'm going to order a 09 this weekend and need to get looking for a set of winters before the car arrives. i want to know what my options are.

here's what i've compiled from the other threads:
caliber r/t 18's - not chrome clad version (seem some say they work without spacers, some say they won't?)

sport edition A7


RTX hemlock


RTX classic


euromax 612


macpek steelies (part #X42858)(i believe they're the same as the ford flex wheel)


TSW Trackstar 5


won't let me post pics of any more in this post. sorry.
please feel free to chime in on any others.

i dont know about anyone else, but I wasnt charged my spacers or the tuner lugs that were needed. I dont see why you would limit yourself to only the wheels that dont need spacers.

Good luck finding winter tires now at this point in time... Quebec has them all:jester:

It seems that the Caliber R/T rims that are NOT chrome clad will fit, but the ones that ARE chrome clad won't fit.

Sticky for you. :bigthumb:
thanks for the heads-up. updated the first post.
thanks for the sticky. it'll make it easier for me to find this again.:banger:

just don't like the concept of using spacers. one more thing to go haywire. if i can get away without using them, then so be it.
yah, i'm worried about the winter tire thing. ordering the srt tomorrow. hopefully i can snag a set before the car is delivered.:scared:

do the 18x9.5 primax 006 work? if not which ones do? and which bolt pattern do we need?
they should work but they will be very close to sticking out of the fender we need the 5x114.3

9.5" wide wheels would suck for winter though if thats what your looking for

i think the non-chrome clad wheels were from previous (07?) years.

well, I'm pissed...

its been over a month since I ordered those Primax 006 wheels from some local guy here, and I finally went in for the test fit yesterday @ lunch (tires finally came in last night) and of course they don't fit over the calipers even with spacers, mother ****er... somebody lied to me over there and pretended to know a hell of alot more about cars and fitment then reality... they have a big lip on them, and they curve in right at the lip and touch the caliper... so guess scratch those off the list... I ended up saying screw origionality and went with a set of those RTX wheels, they're nice, I just know smarties already has 'em
although, would make a nice photoshoot.... hahaha... anyways they should be on and pics up monday or tuesday.,..

that sucks. bunch of turnips there it sounds like. the rtx wheels do look nice though. at least you have tires though. that could prove to be my nemesis.

Where did you get the 18" steel wheels from? I'd like to know who the distributor is for us in Canada considering it's a quebec company.. I don't feel like going to the ford dealer.

Euromax!!!! That's the name!!!!!
painted black FTMFW!!!

Those wheels are the ones I would get if I didn't feel so guilty taking off these awesome srt wheels.

I do have to say one of the nicest things about this car is the wheels. lol

i got mine through eastway chrysler in scarborough. parts manager (adam) is an awesome guy to deal with. he had no trouble getting them in. give him a shout. he'll remember my car (he knows both of them) but you can mention my board name too and he'll know who you are talking about if it makes it easier.

How sure is the Original poster that the Sport edition a7 will fit the CSRT4??? Can anyone verify this? I'm looking to make it my drag wheels. Thanks
