rh22. Awesome looking wheels. They look great on your MKC.
My MKC is due at the dealership next Wed. Looking forward to finally getting my new ride.

I agree (the laws of physics say the rim size and tire hardness will affect ride). How do you "Build and Price" with the 20 inch Rims?

I found these 2017 MKC "building a Black Label" with a ridiculous price. The Concièrge comes and cleans my house and then does my shopping for this price.

"19” Premium Ebony Painted Aluminum Wheels Included"



Are 20" rims a dealer installed option?
Maybe the 20" wheels are no longer available..

I went with the 20" OEM,great matt silver rims with Pirelli all season, not impressed with these tires,once worn down, Im switching to Continental summer only extreme grip....got these on my Mustang GTCS and they are night and day diff from the Pirelli's.
For winter use, I bought a set of 18" alloys with Michelin ICE....incredible wet/snow/ice/ traction....the all season are complete crap in winter months,4 wheel drive or not.

So you have 20" wheels installed after your car was delivered, presumably as a dealer installed add-on? Then, perhaps you kept your original/factory wheels to use in winter/wet season"

So.. the 19 inch wheels I show above come from the factory are different that your 'OEM" wheels?

Well looks like the 2017 "Build & Price" at Lincoln.com says the cool wheels are "19 inch". The 2017 MKC brochure says "20 inch". Guess I'll take the brochure's word for it.

These are the 20' Reserve Wheels, mine are not ebony painted but more like a light gunmetal. If you look you will see the design of the spoke is the same shape as the wing grill... nice touch to carry the design through��

Ok, got ya......my 20" came with the MKC similar to the pic you show, but in 20" not 19"......at the time of sale they advertised a "winter package wheel set" turns out they were Blizzard installed on cheap steel chinese wheels.....so I made a big stink about the lack of transparency with the "winter package" the actual ad showed alloys shod with some winter Bridgestone (cheap,cheap,cheap) and I was about to cancel the sale.....the salesman came back and said he spoke with the manager and you can choose a set of alloys from OUR catalog and whatever tire you want for a $100 a wheel....don't think so Jack!
They knew I was about to cancel....I told the manager I was not buying into a bait and switch scheme....ends up I was finally offered the tire of MY choice in 18" on an alloy rim off their catalog at no additional charge to me.....went with a set of Michelin ICE, a set of 4 sensors, and nice looking alloy rims.....there was no way I was going to have those cheap steel rims on my ride.

The $4,695 Option for 20 Inch Wheels.

I got confused. The "build and price" app can take you many directions. I drive (one way) 55 miles to work. The MPG factor is very important for me (I drive a little hybrid now). I don't want a weighty AWD and a larger engine to drive down my MPG.

A Reserve MKC starts at $40,070 on the “Build & Price” app on Lincoln.com
To get the 20 inch wheel options I must add these two “joined at the hip” options for $3,550

All Wheel Drive (AWD)
2.3L GTDI I-4 Engine.

Selecting these options pops up the super cool $1145, 20 inch wheel option.
20" Polished Aluminum Wheels with Ebony Painted Pockets

So.. my 20 inch wheels cost $4,695 ($3,550 + $1,145) and hundreds of dollars in gasoline each year.

My new thinking is to take the standard small wheels for winter use and get some 20 inch wheels from Tire Rack for the Summer.

Gotta love this forum for you guys being so willing to help! I'd love to see pictures of the other option now actually because I've got someone who is looking at the same options. Short of heading down to the dealership or just getting whatever and switching it up at the first regular tire change anyway...
