Why can't I find 2012 Boss Wheels?

Why can't I find the black 2012 Boss wheels anywhere? Anyone know where I can find a set?

The Boss is a limited production car and AFAIK neither wheel design (standard Boss, Laguna Seca) is available as an option on any other car. So you'll probably have to find a set of take-offs, and those will surely be thin on the ground.

I may be able to order you a set, they're around 450/per wheel though. I may have a local owner willing to sell theirs, send me a PM with your price range and I'll give it a shot.

The LS wheels are available from Ford Racing and various vendors such as AmericanMuscle, and they are fairly cheap as well(~$250ea).

I don’t know what you want to put the wheels on but if it’s not made by Ford Racing you are buying a copy or imitation Boss wheel…
But who would want an imitation wheel?… It would be like eating fake crab meat… kind of taste like crab, but you know it’s just turkey parts…

And this is as close are you are going to get.... it is the 302s wheel... like the LS wheel but not like the Boss Track Pack wheel...

If I were to replace mine, this would be my wheel of choice sticking with the Ford Racing wheel…
http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts...KeyField=11825

I would trade my wheels and tires for a set of those plus the tires like a Nitto NT05…

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

I was on the hunt for those at one point as well. They are out there, but scarce. Keep searching eBay and you'll find a set eventually. Prices are all over the place.

You can also do Carroll Shelby CS56 wheels. They are the closest things I've found and they are made by a great company. They are a bit more expensive...but they look BA! Plus, they have great sizes and offsets. I've been looking at these wheels myself...

You can get them in black, chrome, silver...

Keep your eye out. I bought a mint spare set with great tires that I'll use on my stock rims. I have 23,000 miles on my car and combined with several track days including a trip to the gravel has "blemished" my OEM rims a bit... I also have a complete take off suspension. Yes I have a problem.

I'd still vote for the CS wheels. The sizes/offsets are better, too.
