I want to get some 18" wheels for the 2013 Taurus. The OEM size is 18" or 19"; we have 19" but snow tires in that size are made of unobtanium or something and super expensive.

I figured some 18" Ford rims from Craigslist would be a cheap way to go and keep a stock look to the car. Anyone know which models were equipped with the same bolt pattern and offset? No one puts that information in their ad, so it is hard to search by that alone.

Fords that use the 5x114.3 lets see...
The Taurus has an offset of 50...

found a site that has all that info.
Mustang uses the same bolt pattern. http://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/mustang/
First gen Edge: http://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/edge/
Flex: http://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/flex/
First gen US Fusion: http://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/fusion/
Taurus X: http://www.wheel-size.com/size/ford/taurus-x/

Ya can probably find a OEM rim there.

See if you can score some Police Interceptor steelies for cheap. Crown Vics had the same bolt pattern, so that may be something to look at too though you'd need to see if the 17s clear the brakes.

I don think the 17" rims will clear the calipers

Then the 18" steelies off the current police car.

EDIT: This guy claims to have 17s on his 2010 SHO. http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/119-5th-6th-gen-aesthetics-interior-wheels-tires/193058-2013-taurus-sho-winter-tires.html#post2083889
Those steelies are not exactly standard, they are made to drive over a curb at highway speed and weigh a fuck-ton.

In 2013 the Taurus was updated, one of those changes was larger brakes, which is why I'm not sure the 17s will fit.
