If you go w/ 15's...7.5 wheels and 225/45-15 Toyo R1R (fast, but short wearing)...

The biggest issue that I see with the Focus, is that it really needs (-) camber to get the most out of it--even the cheapie SPC camber adjusters help (but they chew up strut bearings).
Good tips, especially the camber kit information. Thanks a bunch.
