Does anyone already have plans to go aftermarket right out the gate? I'm considering AT tires but that's it for now.

Wonder what will be the biggest tires that can go on the Factory "steel" wheel on the Badlands trim.

I noticed on the First Edition that 17" wheels are the only ones in the build package on the website but if you go to the invoice/options list you may be able to get 18". Can anyone clarify for me? Would 18's look better on the Sport? Thanks

18" wheels would mean less/smaller sidewall of the tire, assuming you're going with recommended tire size for that wheel. The tire on the OB 18" wheels will also be less wide than the optional/bigger tire size offered on 17" wheels of the BL model with the "steelies".
(OB gets 225/60/18 and BL gets 225/65/17 or 235/65/17 series)

Me personally thinks that 17" wheels with tires that have bigger sidewall and wider track looks meatier/better/more aggressive on a Sport, than 18" wheels and a "thinner" looking tire.(or most SUVs). More sidewall also means more protection off road.

You can see the attached pic and see the difference in the sidewall amount of the different tires pretty well.

Has anyone had difficulty ordering the aluminum wheels on the badlands with the all terrain tire? My build via configurator added both for $300, my dealer said their internal system was having trouble as it was invoicing a different price for the wheels+tires. They’re circling up with their ford rep to figure it out, so should get resolved, was just curious if anyone had had a similar issue.

I've built mine with the Falken Wildpeak AT3W's -- I run those now on my Jeep JK Wrangler and they are fabulous in the Houston rain...
