Also, despite what Ford charges for OEM wheels, in any forum market I've ever been a part of, you'll be lucky to get NEARLY that for OEM wheels. Mazdaspeed 3 rims go for $600 a wheel and you won't even get that for a whole set of them, even the 2nd gen brand new ones.

Idk how it works here in the Focus world but just my 2 cents. GLWS though, you'll probably find a buyer for these.
$200 per wheel x 4 = $800, you pay shipping and insure the set for $1500.

$1000 for the set shipped at my cost and insured for same.

You can also get them on Ebay for $300 apiece refurbished if you wish.

These wheels are brand new, for $200 apiece. You won't find them anywhere else for that price. Including hardware, (which you didn't price into your equation), that's a 65% discount off the list price.
