Literally in this same thread @markboris said he was selling his GTPE wheels. Just a couple of posts up
I'm sorry, I was not clear in one of those posts above when I said I was selling my premium MME and the OEM and GT wheels. I meant both of those wheel sets where being sold WITH my premium. However, now that my friend that bought the premium saw the GTPE wheels on the car, he no longer wants the OEM premium wheels so those are the only ones I will be getting rid of.

Yes Dave, 255/45/20 tires will fit on the GTPE wheels but I would not go any larger. The GTPE wheel is 8" wide and that is the narrowest width 255/45 tires should be installed on.

This below is potentially good news for those hunting for a physical spare wheel/tire for their GT, full size or space saver. If we know that the Jaguar F pace portfolio wheel is compatible on the ME premium... and the premium wheels fit over our GT calipers....there's a possibility their more plentifully available 19" space saver spare could work for us.

I planned to toss one of my OE GT wheels as a spare for longer roadtrips, but a more compact cheap option would be great.


Ok Rory, the answer is YES, the 19" Premium OEM wheels do fit on the GT/PE. There is 1/4" between the inside of the wheel and back of the caliper and 3/16" between the back side of the front of the wheel and the front of the caliper.

Also as stated in the Wheel and Tire info sticky thread, the GT/PE wheels are 20x8 ET 47.5

Waiting for Dec. production of my MME GT Perf. It will arrive in the snow (Toronto, Canada here). Need winter setup. Tirerack has virtually no 20" rims left in stock for the 2021 season, or if they do, they are $550+ each. I plan on leaving the Pirelli P Zero summer tires on the stock GT Perf. wheels to prevent possible dismounting damage, and went with a totally new tire and wheel set for winter: Pirelli Scorpion 245/45R20 and this Canadian company wheel, FASTCO wheels, of Quebec, Canada.
They are in stock, at only $340 CAD each. They look like the GT Perf wheels, so I think it's a good wheel for those who are still looking for something reasonable to buy in 2021....

Are they available in 20 x 8 with ET 47.5?

We'll have to meet up sometime I'm just across the lake. Got my GTP delivered just a few days ago and managed to find some 19" that fit. No pics of the wheels yet, but I'll take some in just a bit.

Clearly they fit on the hub but did you actually take it out driving? I know the rims don't flex or anything but what about overheating the brakes or something else? A quarter inch doesn't feel like a lot of room

That caliper clearance is PLENTY. Lots of performance cars with aftermarket wheel and/or brake setups have less than what Mark measured.

Yes went downtown which is about 5 miles round trip. Maximum speed was about 50 on the mountainous roads. No issues.

I would like to know exactly what the Mach-E GT Performance Edition wheel specs are. 20" x _ wide? Offset? What aftermarket wheels would match exactly the specs and fit over the brake calipers?
20"×8", offset +47.5 (ET47.5), weight 29.5 pounds. 5x108 mm lug pattern.
