So I can called my saleman and he said the they have not recevied any, but I was more then welcome to walk the lot and try to find it. So I did and I found it five miles away from the dearlership at the new car overflow lot that Sam Pack owns. I got the keys from my salesman and test drove the drove truck, A week later I bought the truck.

Sorry long stroy
Man I hate to say it being a long time customer of Five Star but they really don't know what they have. Nor do they have a good relationship with their broker resulting in not know chit about order progress. One would think that the moment a Platinum showed up they would have it cleaned up and brought to display ASAP.

Congrats on finding your truck! These Platinums are nice to say the least.

Bad news. 17'' Inch wheels do not fit on these new 13's. Well they fit but but there was less than 1/8'' clearence between the calliper and the rim leaving no room to properly attach the weights. I decided to go with 18's.

Couldn't get a good picture behind the wheel with my crappy cell.

They fit on 12's. They increased the rotor size on the 13's.

That sucks Don!

Maybe it's just the thickness/shape of the lip on the Fuel wheels because Ford shows a 17" option on the build sheet.

Yeah I was pretty bummed taking the truck home with the stock wheels. Oh well, at least I had the option to reorder at no cost.

Knowing that I was going to swap the wheels and tires out asap I didnt upgrade them on the 2013 truck I ordered. Its coming from factory with a 17 inch rim. Ill call today to confirm this....

My guess is that the 17's from the factory come balanced with outer lip weights like my Platinum 20's came with (I was shocked). The wheels did fit (front tested only) just no room for inner weights and I wasn’t comfortable with that close of a tolerance being afraid that if the wheel flexed at all I would be in a world of hurt.
