1 dealer has a waitlist of 400.

That looks amazing. How's the Raptor compared to a Wildtrak?
Any specifications of the rims?

Wheels are 17x9 et1 on stock tires

The top of the line wildtrak actually has the same engine and transmission, higher payload and towing, more creature comforts like driving aids( lane departure, front parking sensors...) but doesn’t have the suspension and wheels and tires of the raptor.

So the wildtrak is actually a good buy and better for daily driving as it’s not as wide

Can you take a look at the stock raptor wheels and see what the offset is? it should be listed on the back face of the wheel. Thanks!

I actually dont have the wheels anymore.

From what I was told, stock wheels were
17x8.5 et 10

the Fuel Shok wheels i got were
17x9 et1

I honestly think one of the above is wrong because the fuel shok wheels were pushed out a lot (to my liking)

I think the stock wheels have a higher offset, maybe in the 30's or more, the spokes actually stick out

The raptor fenders eat up the stock wheels but with the fuel shok they stick out slightly

I lived in Texas for almost 20 years before moving back to the Philippines barely 2 months ago.

It also takes a long time to get actual plates so they let you use any plates as long as it has the conduction number on it.

I might as well "represent" while waiting on the real plates to come.

What tint did you have installed if you don't mind me asking?
I'm still contemplating on what to put in mine, got my unit from Alabang a couple of weeks ago.
By the way, that stance with the new shoes looks much better, how's the ride compared to the stock wheels?

Love this picture, looks great almost like it could have been OEM (came that way from the factory) yet much better brother! That's the way to do upgrades, should look like factory could have built it.
