Wheels assistance.

So I'm taking half my vacation next week, and will take the rest later on and I plan on getting some wheels ready. I want 16's to use the stock tires (hardly worn anyways, cheaper to replace if I ever have to). Anyways, I found these that I really like: http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Price


Now looking at the specs, they have a 48 mm offset. Will I need spacers or something to have them fit? I thought I saw the Focus has 49 or 50 somewhere. (Truly new at this but I'm tired of hubcaps.) Also, TPMS-wise, would wherever I go to mount them have that much trouble? Tirerack seems to make it seem like it'll be a huge hassle unless I buy from them. But I don't wanna dump nearly $200 on sensors.

Also, I'm going to school closer next year, so I won't have to worry about horrible streets, so these should hold up well. Any advice is appreciated, thanks all!


And quickly mocked up:
