FRW 18" Wheels

HI Guys..

Part of the deal when i bought my xr6 Turbo was an upgrade to 18" wheels

I received them.. but the logo in the middle of the wheel sais FRW.
all the ones i've seen are Ford.

I get jibbed? .. or is this the new logo? FRW? Ford racing wheels??? ..
dunno..
just never seen em before.

Does it look like Ford writing/colours?

Re: FRW 18" Wheels

Interesting, would like to see a pic, could be something Fordish, or maybe it's the brand of wheels?

Re: FRW 18" Wheels

There are copies of both the XR 18" and GT wheels available now - sounds like this could be a set of them. If they were the genuine Ford mags, they'd come with the Ford centrecaps.

JamieXR6 got the 18's fitted to his 6T by the dealer and they had crappy non Dunlop tyres, but they came with the genuine Ford centres.

Re: FRW 18" Wheels

Its very similar to the original ford, thats why i didnt see it.

THe wheel seems more chromy then an original... maybe cos its new...
but the label in the centre is in a blue oval with silver capital writing FRW in the centre.
I've had them a little over a week
and i dont know if i should call them back saying they ripped me off..
or be happy cos i got the new style wheels.


*confused*


i'll try to get a photo

Turbo6i, just drop in and ask your dealer what's going on would be the easiest..and while your there check around and see if there are any cars in stock with 18's and see what centres they have....

Who makes the replica 18's?

Re: FRW 18" Wheels

Something fishy going on!!

called footscray ford dealership. they say they've never heard of FRW wheels

called DAndenong, .. the place i got them from.
Spare parts have no clue... spoke to the salesman that sold the car to me... he said he hasnt heard of them... but said that maybe just the centres have been changed from the NEW wheels, ford racing wheels.

I dont buy that.!!!

told me to bring it in so he can have a look.
i didnt know the centres could be changed that easily.

This may get ugly.

part of the deal when i bought the car was that they would upgrade the wheels to 18"
it wastn clarified, but the assumption is that upgrade to the ford original wheels.??

plus the 17" original wheels probably cost more then 18" duplicates anyways!!!!!


Not happy.
