That's why I asked about 205/45, since it's half an inch taller than the 215/40. Thanks, now I know that I can use these wheels I am happyThe factory uses a 205/40 17 in Europe and that is what some of the agent cars ran last summer. I know that works with no issues. The 215/40 17 works on my car, but I don't have the same wheel offset as the Focus. Not sure about the 205/45. The car will perform better with a smaller diameter tire, but I needed pot hole protection and ended up going for a taller sidewall.
Too many spokes for my taste. Looks a little busy. I think the ideal is 5 or 7 spokes.
Normally, I would agree with you on that, but I've had so many 5 spoke wheels in my life that tbh I'm getting bored with them. Also, after seeing these wheels in person on a focus SES I knew I had to have them.Too many spokes for my taste. Looks a little busy. I think the ideal is 5 or 7 spokes.
True.those wheels are slightly different. I had the ones from the Tire Rack as a production wheel on my SVT EAP Focus. The SES Focus wheels are a different color, but they are close. At one time Ford Racing offered that wheel in white, black, gold, and EAP argent. A close friend of mine had a Sonic Blue SVT Focus with the Gold multispoke Ford Racing wheels. One of the best looking Focuses I had ever seen.
