I think American Racing could make you up a set that would be very close.

I bet Steeda will have them in their catalog before long.

With a slight mark up, no doubt.

I just spoke with STEEDA.....extra wheels available if you initially bought the McQueen BULLITT Package. To date they are not selling the wheel as a STEEDA part.....
He did say when they complete the McQueen program......wheels may be available.....his best guess as a parts agent.

American Racing Bullitt style wheels are 18" diameter.

The Steeda wheels on Steve McQueen Edition are 20" diameter. Stock wheel on the 2019 is 19", with different widths on front and back. So if you go with the Steeda wheel (when available), you will need new rubber too.

The American Racing wheel is available in 20". Custom order. But you are correct about having to buy new tires regardless.

Yes....not an inexpensive fix!! Although the 2019 BULLITT is an unbelievable car....I just don't like black wheels.

That's me...

You can like it but not love it!

A good wheel re-finisher could paint the centers whatever colour you want.

I like the Nitto 555's, can be a little snappy loose in the rain. Great grip in the dry.

Well, if the 2019 BULLITT was to be a tribute car.....why did FORD choose black shiny wheels.....maybe they thought a MILLENIAL might buy the car.....I guess they like black wheels on their Civics....

I read many months ago Ford went with the shiny black wheels because the gray shows brake dust a lot more then the black! Yes, I know even the black shows brake dust but, not that bad if you wax them good they are easier to wipe down when waxed.

If I owned a 2019 BULLITT, I would keep the wheels clean like the ones on my 2009....

Take a look at most new cars and trucks......the industry is obsessed with Black Wheels......I'll bet they are cheaper to produce!


Anyways....I like them but I don't love them!

I don't know, I am constantly cleaning these black wheels because of the brake dust. A 30 mile trip and they are covered, especially the fronts.
