This explains why they were deleted from my order.Rumor is true, but a wheel "shortage" rather than "none available". We call these "Controlled Commodities" where a vendor can't supply enough of a part. Ford prioritizes orders with Controlled Commodities by date received and retail (sold) order versus stock order.
Except ME!I will add that my contact also just got back to me and said that there is definitely NOT any hold or delay on the Rado Gray wheel package.
They had anticipated that it would be a popular upgrade, but even their high estimates were slightly low. Seems they are selling like hotcakes. But, not to worry, the production has been adjusted and it's full speed ahead for the Rado Gray Lover's crowd.
