My guess is that they were imported from europe and it cost too much.

http://www.ford.co.uk/Hidden/iBrochure/Focus Pg 26-27 shows those specific wheels as being standard on the UK Titanium models, and pg 34 shows the entire range of wheels available over there.

Ford wanted something ridiculous like almost $400 per wheel as a service part, so no wonder why they would discontinue it (assuming it did actually cost that much more than the standard wheels).
