18 inch OEM style jobbies from rsalloys.com

Why Ford never offered EsCos wheels in an Xpack 18incher is a mystery to me!

it you arent interested in paul ripleys 18" monte rim then imo the best rim is an 18" old style comp mo

but rondells are nice if you like pretty wheels rather than hard wheels.
