The Expedition is Ford’s largest SUV, sharing many characteristics with some of Ford F-Series trucks. So how can you keep track of the Expedition’s OEM tires and wheels?

Throughout the history of the Expedition, Ford has only used four OEM tire brands and models — Continental, Pirelli, Goodyear, and Bridgestone. But when it comes to OEM wheels, Ford was a bit more creative, with nearly 20 different styles offered over the years.

The Ford Expedition has become a popular SUV choice among people who need something bigger than a typical SUV but don’t want to make the jump to a pickup truck. Ford has outfitted the Expedition with a variety of OEM tire and wheel packages to keep customers interested and happy, but it can be hard for Expedition owners to keep track of what came on theirs from the factory. If you’re in the market for replacement OEM tires and wheels for your Expedition, consider this guide your one-stop-shop to find everything you need.

To ensure accuracy, all of the tires and wheels in this article have been thoroughly vetted so that you know you’re getting the best information possible. All of the information comes from Ford, Ford-certified parts sellers, and Expedition owners themselves, so you won’t find more comprehensive and accurate information anywhere else!

Ford Expedition OEM Tires & Wheels

After its initial release in 1997, the Expedition has continually been produced and is currently on its fourth generation. With each new generation and restyling, Ford released new wheel and tire packages to go along with the redesign.

Even smack dab in the middle of most of the generations, Ford came up with some new OEM wheels that they thought would look better so they decided to add them to the lineup. As you can imagine, that number of OEM tires and wheels has really added up over time — especially the wheels.

As mentioned above, Ford has only used four different OEM tires on the Expedition throughout its history. As Expedition drivers have been happy with all four, there was never really any reason for Ford to start experimenting with OEM tires and trying to fix something that wasn’t broken.

But when it comes to the OEM wheels, on the other hand, Ford has done a bit of experimenting to give their customers more and more options. Over the years, this has led to almost 20 different OEM wheel packages. While this is great for the Expedition customers at the time so that they have more options to choose from, it can make it more difficult to find the right wheels down the road if you’re trying to nail down which wheels came on which model years.

But that’s where we come in. We’ve done the research for you so that you don’t need to spend hours trying to find the right OEM tires and wheels for your Expedition. So if you’re looking for the OEM parts for your Ford, look no further. This comprehensive guide has all the information that you need.

So let’s get into the good stuff. Here are all the OEM tires and wheels that have ever come on the Ford Expedition.

OEM Tires For Ford Expedition

Continental ContiTrac SUV

Ford is largely praised for providing their customers with some of the best tires on the market straight from the factory. And the Expedition is no exception to that rule. Even with the early model years of the Expedition, Ford was sending them out of the factory with Continentals on them. Specifically, the Continental ContiTrac SUV.

While the ContiTrac SUV tires have been discontinued for a number of years now and the technologies and capabilities that they used pale in comparison to what we have access to now, they were great tires back in the days of the early-model Expeditions. Though they didn’t have any mileage warranty, they offered reliable all-season traction year-round, including even in light snow.

With all that in mind, we don’t recommend trying to find a set of ContiTrac tires to replace the OEM tires on your Expedition because these tires have been discontinued for awhile now. You don’t want to mount tires that are more than a few years old, and all ContiTrac tires out there will be at least that old. We recommend any of the three tires below over trying to find an old set of ContiTracs for your Expedition!

Specifications

Some specifications may vary based on the exact tire size, which could differ between models and trim levels.

  • Warranty: None
  • Max Load Capacity: 1,984 lbs
  • Max Inflation Pressure: 44 psi
  • Tread Depth: 13/32”
  • Tire Weight: 31 lbs
  • UTQG Treadwear: 520
  • UTQG Traction: A
  • UTQG Temperature: B
  • All-season tread offers reliable traction in all weather conditions
  • M+S rating indicates that the tires are capable of providing traction in severe weather including light snow

Pirelli Scorpion STR

Coming from one of the biggest names in the tire manufacturing business, let’s take a look at the Pirelli Scorpion STR that Ford decided to put on many Expeditions straight from the factory. The Scorpion STR was designed to be the premier highway-terrain all-season tire for crossovers, SUVs, and light trucks — perfect for the Expedition since it was built on a light-truck chassis.

To provide an optimal highway driving experience, the Scorpion STR was designed to specifically offer drivers the Stability, Traction, and Ratings (hence the “STR” in its name) that is required by today’s modern vehicles. With all three of these traits working in conjunction with one another, the STR provides Expedition owners with a fantastic highway experience.

Interestingly with the Scorpion STR, there are actually two different models depending on if they are designed for North American cars or European cars. For the Expedition (which is of course North American), the STR is designed with narrower grooves between the tread blocks and continuous shoulder ribs. These features are meant to increase rigidity, resist uneven tread wear, and provide a quieter ride.

All Pirelli tires are going to be top-notch, but the Scorpion STR tires are not among the best ones that they make. In any case, you can buy new Pirelli Scorpion STRs for your Expedition for around $155 - $180, but they wouldn’t be our top choice. We recommend one of the other options (especially the Bridgestone below) at that price point.

Specifications

Some specifications may vary based on the exact tire size, which could differ between models and trim levels.

  • Warranty: 65,000 miles
  • Max Load Capacity: 2,403 lbs
  • Max Inflation Pressure: 44 psi
  • Tread Depth: 12/32”
  • Tire Weight: 39 lbs
  • UTQG Treadwear: 520
  • UTQG Traction: A
  • UTQG Temperature: A
  • Tread block design for North American cars reduces road noise and enhances comfort
  • Delivers reliable traction year-round and in just about all road conditions

Goodyear Wrangler SR-A

Outside of the big five — Michelin, Pirelli, Continental, Bridgestone, and Cooper — Goodyear is probably the most well-known tire manufacturer around. Whether you’re in the market for tires for a small passenger car or massive mud-terrain tires for a souped-up truck, Goodyear has options for you. When it comes to the Expedition, Ford put Goodyear Wrangler SR-As on them straight from the factory.

The Wrangler SR-A was designed to be one of the best all-season highway-terrain tires on the market for sport utility vehicles and light trucks, so Ford put them on the Expedition to see how they performed. And Ford (as well as Expedition drivers) were not disappointed. The all-season tread compound enabled Expedition drivers to reliably drive all year and in any weather condition, including light snow.

To further enhance the traction of the Wrangler SR-A tires, Goodyear utilized their proprietary WetTrac Technology that molded a special rubber compound into a symmetric tread design to provide uncompromised traction on wet roads. Circumferential grooves along the tire also helped to channel water out of the tire’s contact patch, reducing the risk of hydroplaning on wet roads.

For how good of a tire they are, the Goodyear Wrangler SR-As are fairly affordable. We’d recommend them over the Scorpion STR tires from above and they’re even cheaper, coming in at around $130 to $195 per tire.

Specifications

Some specifications may vary based on the exact tire size, which could differ between models and trim levels.

  • Warranty: 50,000 miles
  • Max Load Capacity: 2,535 lbs
  • Max Inflation Pressure: 44 psi
  • Tread Depth: 13/32”
  • Tire Weight: 37 lbs
  • UTQG Treadwear: 500
  • UTQG Traction: A
  • UTQG Temperature: B
  • Designed to reduce road noise and vibration to make for a more comfortable driving experience
  • WetTrac Technology enhances traction and reliability in poor weather conditions

Bridgestone Dueler Alenza A/S 02

Last but certainly not least, let’s take a look at the only Bridgestone tire that Ford ever put on the Expedition straight from the factory — the Bridgestone Dueler Alenza A/S 02. This all-season highway-terrain tire was designed to be used as original equipment on a myriad of different light- and medium-duty trucks, SUVs, and even crossovers.

The Dueler Alenza A/S 02 comes branded with the M+S Rating on the sidewall, which actually stands for “mud and snow”. This rating means that the Dueler Alenza A/S 02 has exceeded industry standards and proven that it can provide reliable traction in the most severe weather conditions, including snow.

Although the Dueler Alenza A/S 02 tires did not come with a mileage warranty, Expedition owners have been regularly able to get 60,000 miles or more out of a set if they’re well-maintained. Bridgestone tires are known for their comfort and durability, and that’s exactly what Ford gave their customers when they put the Dueler Alenza A/S 02s on the Expedition.

Of the OEM tires that Ford has put on the Expedition over the years, the Bridgestone is our personal favorite. Bridgestone is one of the top tire manufacturers in the world, and the Dueler Alenza A/S 02 is a great tire. You can buy new A/S 02 tires for your Expedition for around $280 each, but you might be even happier if you switch it up a bit and go with Bridgestone’s upgraded Dueler H/L Alenza Plus.

Specifications

Some specifications may vary based on the exact tire size, which could differ between models and trim levels.

  • Max Load Capacity: 2,403 lbs
  • Max Inflation Pressure: 44 psi
  • Tread Depth: 10/32”
  • Tire Weight: 41 lbs
  • UTQG Treadwear: 700
  • UTQG Traction: A
  • UTQG Temperature: B
  • Offer a great combination of comfort, durability, and performance
  • M+S Rating means they provide traction in all conditions including even light snow

OEM Wheels For Ford Expedition

1997 - 2006 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

16” x 7” 5x135 9-Hole Steel Spare Wheel (F75Z1015CB)

Let’s start off with the basics here — the spare steel wheel. Everyone needs a spare and you never want to get caught without one when you are really in need of it. Just imagine the feeling of desperately needing to use your spare tire (maybe you had a flat or a blowout), only to see your OEM spare completely flat due to a rusted out and corroded steel wheel.

That’s why it’s important to routinely check on the condition of your spare because these steel wheels do corrode and rust eventually. And when we’re talking about 1997 through 2006 Expeditions, that’s nearly 25 years old. This replacement spare wheel matches the OEM one exactly and is sized much larger than a compact spare at 16x7.

If you need a replacement spare wheel for your 1997 - 2006 Ford Expedition, you can get a brand new replacement from Ford for right around $50.

16” x 7” 5x135 5-Slot Steel Wheels with Silver Finish (F65Z1015BA)

For the first ten years of the Expedition (from 1997 through 2006), Ford didn’t give customers many choices when it came to OEM tire and wheel packages. In fact, there was only one wheel option, a 16x7 5-slot steel wheel with a silver-painted finish. As you’ll see throughout this guide, Ford loves to go with a 5-spoke wheel design or some rendition of it, and this wheel is no exception.

The spokes are curved and angled in such a way, however, that the wheel is more aptly described as having five slots rather than 5 spokes. In any case, these wheels were easy to mass produce and were affordable, and Ford might not have been too sure how the Expedition would grow in popularity, so they went with this basic design. Since this was the only wheel offered, it came standard on all models and trim levels.

You can get replacements of these wheels for just under $60 each, making these wheels some of the cheapest OEM wheels that you’ll find for any vehicle on the road.

2007 - 2009 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

17” x 7.5” 6x135 12-Hole Steel Spare Wheel (7L1Z1015B)

As you might have noticed, a big change here between 2006 (and earlier) Expeditions and the new 2007 (and later) model years was the bolt pattern. Starting in 2007, Expedition wheels required 6 lug nuts rather than 5, thus changing the bolt pattern from 5x135 to 6x135. As such, this also made wheels from the previous years unable to fit, so new wheels were brought in.

When it came to a new spare wheel, Ford stuck with the full-size option due to the large size of the Expedition rather than going to a compact spare wheel. They also upped the spare’s size to 17x7.5 and changed the design to 12-hole rather than 9-hole. This spare was standard on all models of the Expedition from 2007 - 2009.

You buy a new spare wheel for your 2007 - 2009 Ford Expeditions for $69.

2007 - 2010 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

20” x 8.5” 6x135 6-Spoke Aluminum Wheels with Chrome Finish (7L1Z1007D)

With the redesigned Expedition and the new bolt pattern, Ford needed to come up with a whole new lineup of wheels. Well in 2007 they started doing just that, and one of the options they had was a much bigger 20x8.5 6-spoke aluminum wheel that was finished with chrome. Compared to the 16” wheels of the previous years and the 17” & 18” wheels that were also released in 2007, these 20” wheels were quite a bit bigger.

The 6-spoke design also gained popularity with customers and Expedition drivers, and you’ll see this general design pop back up again and again through the model years. Although these 20” chrome wheels were an option that could go on any of the Expedition models and trims, they came standard from the factory on the Eddie Bauer Editions.

With the uptick in size to a 20” wheel and the chrome finish, this is the most expensive Expedition OEM wheel that we’ve seen yet. Be prepared to pay about $368 each to get replacements for these wheels.

2007 - 2014 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

18” x 8.5” 6x135 6-Double-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels Machined with Silver (BL1Z1007C)

The expensive 20” chrome wheels from above weren’t the only wheels that debuted for the Expedition in 2007 (you’ll see another one after this as well). Ford also added an 18” option for some Expedition owners that were looking for a little more variety than the standard 17” options you’ll see below.

The new 18” wheel design was another rendition of the 6-spoke design that you’ll see throughout this guide — along with the aforementioned 5-spoke design — but each of the “spokes” were really separated into separate pairs of spokes. So this could really be called a 12-spoke wheel, but the 6-double-spoke moniker has stuck with these wheels since their debut in 2007. These wheels were either standard (King Ranch Edition) or an optional upgrade from the factory on all Expedition models from 2007 - 2014 except the Eddie Bauer Edition since they had upgraded wheels already.

Compared to the above wheel, this one is less than half the price, thanks to the fact that it’s smaller and not clad in a chrome finish! You can buy these OEM Expedition wheels for just over $133 a piece.

2007 - 2017 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

17” x 8” 6x135 12-Hole Spare Steel Wheel with Black Finish (7L1Z1015D)

We know what you’re thinking. Wasn’t there already a spare wheel that debuted in 2007 discussed above? Yes, there was. But it wasn’t the only spare wheel that Ford used with the Expedition starting in 2007. Also, recall that the spare wheel from above was only standard on Expeditions through 2009, this one remained the standard spare wheel all the way through the 2017 model year.

All that said, this spare was very similar to the other one, except it was a half-inch wider (17x8 rather than 17x7.5) and it had a painted black finish. The wider wheel helped to increase its strength and hold up better to the heavy loads that were often accompanying the Ford Expedition. Other than that, it was a similar basic spare wheel — 12-hole design and steel construction.

Everyone needs to have a reliable spare on their Expedition, and you can buy this spare wheel for just about $100.

17” x 8” 6x135 6-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels Clad in Chrome (Bl1Z1007B)

So far you’ve seen the 20” and 18” OEM wheels that debuted in 2007, but those weren’t the only sizes. Ford didn’t decide to jump from a 16” in the earlier model years all the way up to 18” and 20” wheels. Let’s not forget about the standard OEM Expedition wheel that came on most models — the 17” 6-spoke aluminum wheels that were clad in chrome.

These 17” chrome wheels were the standard wheel option on the most common models of the Expedition out there, the Limited and XLT. These wheels were very popular among Expedition owners, who were happy that they had a big upgrade over the 16” steel wheels of the previous model years without having to pay anything extra over the base package price straight from the factory.

Considering this is an OEM wheel that’s clad in chrome, it’s actually relatively affordable. Some of Ford’s other OEM chrome wheels cost well over $500, but you can get replacements for these Expedition wheels for just over $150 each.

2010 - 2020 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

17” x 8” 6x135 8-Hole Spare Steel Wheel with Black Finish (AL3Z1015B)

In 2010, Ford decided to update the spare wheel for the Expedition yet again (even though the one above was still used until 2020). The new spare was still a fairly basic 17x8 steel wheel finished in black. The only real difference between the two was the design change, with this one being an 8-hole wheel and the above spare being a 12-hole design.

If you were surprised at how affordable the chrome wheel just above this one was, then you’ll likely be surprised at just how much more expensive this basic steel wheel is. To replace the steel spare on your 2010 - 2020 Ford Expedition, you’ll need to spend over $282 for it. 

2011 - 2014 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

20” x 8.5” 6x135 10-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with a Silver Finish (BL1Z1007A)

For the 2011 model years, Ford decided to replace the 20” chrome wheels that are listed above with a couple of new 20” wheel designs to put on the Expeditions right from the factory. Let’s start with the 20x8.5 10-spoke aluminum wheels with a silver-painted finish. These wheels totally ditched the popular 6-spoke design but did harp back to the 5-spoke design that you’ve seen a couple of mentions about.


Somewhat similar to the double-spoke design above, the ten spokes in this wheel were grouped together in pairs, so these wheels were almost a bit of a 5-double-spoke wheel. In any case, the extra spokes were a hit among Expedition owners who wanted something a little different than the same old wheels. The silver finish was a nice option as well, offering something a bit less gaudy than the chrome options that came on Expeditions before.

While the spare above was so expensive for a 17” steel wheel, this 20” OEM wheel option seems to be priced right around where it should be. You can buy this wheel brand new for $226 each.

20” x 8.5” 6x135 8-Split-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Polished Finish (9L3Z1007F)

As you just read, Ford released a couple of new 20” OEM wheel styles for the Expedition in 2011, and the second one was far less popular than the 10-spoke design above. This design was still a 20x8.5 aluminum wheel with a silver finish (although these wheels were polished rather than painted), but the actual wheel design wasn’t exactly loved.

The 8-split-spoke design was surely different than anything else that had been offered on the Expedition up until this point, and the way the spokes formed holes or slots within each spoke pairing was not very well received. That’s why you won’t see this design pop back up for the remainder of the Expedition’s history, it just really wasn’t ever that popular.

We’re starting to creep up in price here. Compared to the other 20” OEM Expedition wheels that were available during this time frame, these ones are a bit more expensive. You’ll need to shell out around $330 each to get replacements for these wheels.

2015 - 2017 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

22” x 9.5” 6x135 6-Double-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Polished Finish (FL1Z1007B)

Starting in 2015, Ford decided to do something a bit different and really make a statement with the OEM Expedition wheels. So they not only redesigned and added a new set of 20” wheels to the Expedition (as you’ll see below), but they also added a 22” wheel to the Expedition. You read that right, the Expedition started coming standard with 22” wheels from the factory back in 2015.

These new 22” wheels were not only the largest in diameter up until this point, but they were also the widest Expedition wheel yet at 22x9.5 in size. While Ford wasn’t exactly sure how the public and Expedition fans would react to the 22” wheel, they decided to stick with one of the more popular designs from the past — 6-double-spoke wheels.

Ford also had these wheels finished in polished silver to really make them pop without the flashiness or added expense of chrome. If you follow modern-day Ford vehicles, you’ll know that the 22” wheels were a hit on the Expedition, and the size has been used again and again on other Ford models as well.

Remember up above when we said some of Ford’s other chrome wheels are super expensive? These are perfect examples of that. If you have these wheels on your Expedition, you should hope that they never need to be replaced. But in the unfortunate event that you do need to get them replaced, expect to pay about $720 each for these 22” chrome wheels.

20” x 8.5” 6x135 6-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Polished Finish (FL1Z1007C)

As mentioned above, the 22” wheels might have stolen the show in 2015 but they weren’t the only need wheel that Ford released for the Expedition. Ford needed something to replace the 20” wheels from the previous generation, since neither design was exactly loved by Expedition fans. So Ford decided to go a bit more back to their roots with a fairly simple aluminum wheel with a 6-spoke design.

The 6-spoke design didn’t try to add any sort of “double-spokes” or “split-spokes” this time around. Instead, Ford used a fairly basic, nearly uniform 6-spoke design that just looked clean and was a big hit with the Expedition owner. Similar to the 22” wheels that were also debuted in 2015, these wheels were complete with a polished finish to add some flair and make them shine. This wheel came standard on every model of the Expedition with the above 22” wheels being an optional upgrade that customers could pay extra for.

After the shellshock of what that above set of wheels costs, hopefully these are a bit less surprising. To replace these 20” OEM Expedition wheels, you’ll need to pay just under $250 a piece.

2018 - 2021 Ford Expedition OEM Wheels

18” x 8.5” 6x135 6-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Dark Charcoal Finish (JL1Z1007F)

Starting with the 2018 model years, a new Expedition was born with the debut of the fourth generation. Along with the new generation of Expedition, Ford got rid of all of the old OEM wheels and released an entirely new lineup of wheels. We’ll start with the most basic OEM wheel option that came standard on most Expeditions from the factory — the 6-spoke aluminum wheels finished in a nice dark charcoal color.

Although the previous generation was all about the 20” and 22” wheels, Ford decided to step back a little bit with the new Expedition and add some 18” OEM wheels back into the lineup for their customers. This 18x8.5 6-spoke wheel took the place of the basic 6-spoke wheel from the previous generation, as it just had a clean and simple design to it. Six solid spokes running from the center of the wheel to the rim, and the beautiful charcoal finish made these OEM wheels very popular among Expedition drivers.

With the new lineup of wheels across the newest generation of the Expedition, the OEM wheels have gotten even more expensive. These are the cheapest of the options, but they still cost $510 each to purchase new ones.

18” x 8.5” 6x135 12-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels Machined with Charcoal (JL1Z1007D)

To spice things up a bit outside of the basic 6-spoke 18” wheels above, Ford also offered the new Expedition with a different 18” wheel. Unfortunately, this other OEM wheel option was nowhere near as popular as the other 18” wheels as it almost seemed like Ford tried to do a little too much with them.

In any case, the second 18” wheel option released in 2018 was a 12-spoke aluminum wheel that was machined with charcoal-colored spokes (half of them) and wheel pockets. This wheel design made it look almost as if it was just two 6-spoke designs slapped on top of one another, with the charcoal spokes set back deeper than the machined spokes. It’s tough to describe and fans didn’t fall in love with these. Therefore there were never all that many produced (even to this day), which might lead to what you’re about to read about their price.

These are just 18” wheels with a charcoal finish, right? How expensive can they be to get replaced? Actually, these are the most expensive OEM wheels that have ever come on the Ford Expedition and will set you back $760 per wheel. Considering they are not 20” in diameter or more, it’s crazy that these cost so much. So be extra careful with your Expedition if you have these as the OEM wheel option and stay away from curbs!

20” x 8.5” 6x135 6-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Hyper Silver Finish (JL1Z1007E)

Ford certainly wasn’t going to rest on their laurels and only offer the new Expedition with just 18” wheels, so they made sure to add a couple of 20” diameter wheel options as well. The first set that we’ll take a look at were without a doubt the more popular of the 20” wheel options debuted in 2018 since Ford — yet again — decided to go with the basics and offer a simple 6-spoke aluminum wheel.

The design was different from the 18” wheel debuted in the same year and also the 20” wheel from the previous generations, but fans loved its simplistic nature. The new 6-spoke design for the 20” OEM wheels had nearly straight spokes with uniform thickness, something that hasn’t really been seen much with OEM wheels (except on these and the 22” wheels below). And the hyper silver finish was sort of like a hybrid between a standard silver color and the popular dark charcoal finish, so it made the wheels look great.

As the second most affordable option of the new generation’s OEM wheels, you can expect to pay just over $525 a piece for these wheels.

20” x 8.5” 6x135 12-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels with Charcoal Finish (JL1Z1007G)

The other 20” OEM wheels that debuted with the new Ford Expedition in 2018 were a bit of an oddball design, but they were actually pretty popular among fans. This new wheel design was really a 12-spoke design, although some have referred to it as 6-V-spoke or 6-double-spoke since they are technically grouped together into six pairs of spokes.

In any case, the spokes also do not emanate directly from the center of the wheel and then go straight out towards the wheel’s rim. Instead, they are somewhat slanted in a strange way that’s unlike anything else Ford had ever released on the Expedition. The slant of the spokes is so subtle that many Expedition owners never even noticed it, but it’s just an intriguing design aspect that sets these wheels apart from the rest of the OEM Expedition wheels over the years.

These OEM wheels are not cheap — smack dab in the middle of the five OEM wheel options on the new Expedition cost-wise -- and you can expect to pay $620 per wheel to have them replaced.

22” x 9” 6x135 6-Spoke Aluminum Alloy Wheels Machined with Black (KL1Z1007A)

Last, but certainly not least, Ford did go back to the 22” wheel size that was originally released with the prior generation in 2015. As mentioned above, 22” wheels have become standard on some of Ford’s most popular vehicles, so it’s no surprise that they kept the 22” wheels an option from the factory. But these new wheels were very different from the wheels of the same size from the previous generation and really set some of the new Ford Expeditions apart.

If you just read the first part of the brief wheel description, it just seems like a standard 6-spoke aluminum wheel that just so happens to be 22” in diameter. But it’s that “machined with black” finish that really sets these wheels apart. The vast majority of these wheels are finished with high gloss black paint. But the edges of the spokes and the rim of the wheel are machined silver, which absolutely pops when compared to the black finish. These wheels look great and owners of the new Expedition really love how they make their vehicles stand out, in a good way.

For the third and final time in this guide, we have an OEM Expedition wheel that crosses the $700 threshold. Although they’re not cheap (thank the 22” diameter and machined finish), you can buy this wheel for $703 each, so hopefully you don’t need to get them replaced very often!
