Great job Julian on getting wheel recommendations up on! That's very helpful.

Some of the following info has been posted previously but I confirmed with Ford today the specs of the stock 2013 ST wheels as well as the full size spare specs which I have not seen anywhere else.

Stock 18" Wheel:
Wheel Size: 18 x 8
Backspace: 6.673"
Offset: 55mm
Hub Size: 63.3mm
Weight: 25lbs
Tire Size: 235/40/18

Spare Tire:
Wheel Size: 16 x 6.5
Offset: 50mm
Tire Size: 215/55/16

The Ford rep would not confirm any other info relating to these wheels/tires but did say that he assumes the hub size of the spare wheel to be the same as the 18" wheel as it would not make sense to be different. I asked if the spare is the same steel wheel for the regular Focus and he would not commit to an answer.
