I was looking at the options for the Ford Ecosport and I really don't like either of them. Started looking around and thought instead of going the aftermarket route, maybe grabbing a set of used oem Ford wheels would work out better. The bolt pattern listed for the Ecosport is 4x108 though and everything I'm finding from current Ford vehicles are all 5x108. I wouldn't want to put adapter spacers as those are are approximately an inch thick which would probably send the wheels too far out.

Are there any oem wheels from Ford that you guys think may be a good idea?

I liked the Edge 21" wheels but I think they may be too big, and again, the bolt patterns don't line up at all.

Maybe the Ford Fiesta?
perfect suggestion since that's what all 2011 and up models have going on, even if its not OEM wheels from the Fiesta that he gets, aftermarket wheels that those owners are getting rid of could be another great option, often you can find good wheel and tire combos.

There's a few Ford options you can look into if OEM is really what you're going for. I think these all have the 4x108 bolt pattern: Fiesta, Escort, Aspire, and Focus.

Personally I think the wheels on the ST will be the perfect addition to the EcoSport, might be hard to find anything else for an individual wanting OEM style, prime example right here:

Good call because with just about any car maker out there using wheels from another model is always a winning strategy. Used to own some BMW's and it was the same situation, impressive how many options BMW had.

The Focus has some nice wheels too and all the better if they fir the EcoSport. Maybe even wheels from the Focus RS!

The 17-inch Machined Aluminum Wheels with Black Painted Pockets from the Focus SE looks very nice and it'll blend into the black trim at the bottom of the EcoSport.

Tried looking into other designs that are popular these days. Vossen has some of them and the following style has been floating around a lot since its release. So far its not that nice to be but i'm open to hearing what you guys have to say:

Coming from the Honda/Toyota community these volk style wheels are what really appeals to me but to some here it might look too Japanese for an American car, still thought it was worth sharing:

you definitely lost me on those since i rather have something that looks more ford-like if you know what I mean and come to think about it, if you want a sporty wheel that goes well with the Fiesta and Ford, something that plays homage to its rally cars might work

It could happen since the WRC is chock full of hot hatches and small cars, though a lot of modification will be required and a set of knobbier tires. Though I'm not a fan of bronze colored wheels. Black, silver, grey are more to my taste and they easily match with whatever paint your Ecosport is sporting.

Even if its a package more predicated on cosmetics rather than a real suite of performance even that will still work well. The Nisan Juke Nismo was a great example of this, it was successful. With all the hype from the Raptor, Focus RS and other models under the Ford Performance banner, there's no better time.

Well we just got a look at the Ford Edge ST which is very clear example of intention towards making performance SUV's so if they can do it on the Edge of all vehicles i think that paves the way for the EcoSport. ES being a cheaper product actually makes a stronger case for this to happen with the way I see it.
