I've been looking at this combination for quite a while now. Money is still not where I'd like it to be, so obviously I am not making a purchase. But I'm preparing myself for when I do.
Do any of you guys have either these tires or wheels and have any opinions and/or advice?

Here is my opinion.
Same combo you're looking at. I put a 205/45R17 on them. Love the tires but with all Hankooks, the sidewall could be a little more stiff.

I was fully hoping for some photos of the Pista wheels on a focus. Thank you. Looks real nice. Nice to see the exact combo I'm looking at as well. If only you had a 09 Black SE!
Did you have to do anything special for the wheel and tires to fit on the Focus? Mine is completely stock at this point.
Also, did you get the TPMS? I'm not feeling the additional cost for that.

I don't do any of that electronic monitoring shenanigans. If you get them thru tire rack they come with everything you need to mount them up.

Awesome! Thanks for the information.

I'm using the Hankook V12s right now and they grip phenominally. I agree with the above post that the sidewalls could be a little more solid, but its definitely a great buy.

I'm down to the Hankooks or the Continental ExtremeContact DWS when i get new 17" wheels next month.

They grip awesome in the rain also. I haven't had any problem with hydroplaning or understeer with them. Ive have actually oversteered in the rain with them.
