Exclamation Five Spoke SVT Rims

I heard that they bend easily,

Someone on this site told me they were "soft"

what exactly does that mean and is it true?

Exclamation

Yes I have thought about Gold and Even Bronze.

My first choice for rims was Ford Racings (Dark Argent) gold rims.

But i'm not sure.

I have always really liked the 5 spoke SVT Rims.

I was planning on dropping the car to.

I think it would look really good.

Any other opinions.

And another thing,

Does any company make a car cover specifically for the focus?

by saying a rim is soft is saying the metal its made out of is a soft type of metal... not very "dense" metal... so it'll bend easy...

think of it as plastic... dense plastic is hard to bend where less dense plastic is easier to bend...

I've read in reviews of the SVTF that the only downside to the stock rims are that they are heavy, not soft.

I think they look killer! That's one of the aspects of the SVTF that attracted me to the car.

How dense is gold?

It's the strength of the alloy that determines how "soft" it is.
