I'll go with the second option, but I will seek an aftermarket set for summer time. As much as the second set looks like it'll be an option that costs a little bit, I would still rather have really nice winter wheels lol.
I'd go with the second set too with the larger design but they'll be sued strictly for warmer weather so they aren't destroyed by the winter salt. The first set looks overdone to me with the two size combination.
Since i have little to no aspirations to get a higher level time trim since this will be my main commuter the first set will be it. I even plan on using them for winter. Any idea what finish is on that first set?
The Ecosport comes standard with 17-inch machined aluminum wheels and the SES trim comes with the second set which are premium Dark Tarnish-painted aluminum wheels. So they're trim specific and may not be an option you can add to the base model.
Ford dealers have a lot of leverage with a product like this so when you try to negotiate it will be that much harder, unless its a low volume dealer, then maybe. But during early launch times on a product like this, there's little hope for things to work in your favor.
It's going to be dependent on the dealership and how accommodating they feel. They can't simply take a set of wheels off a higher trim EcoSport and put it on your car, they'll need to order a new set for you.
