Wheel/Tires Recommendations

I bought a 2003 Focus LX with the 2.0SPI engine. Relatively speaking, it's a "no-frills" Focus, but it was an especially good deal, and had just the features I really wanted (5 spd man trans, A/C, and CD player). It's silver in color, and I'm contemplating replacing the wheels (tires too if necessary) just for looks. IOW, I have no intention of ever converting it to any kind of performance machine. I'd just like to enhance the appearance. With that in mind, I'm thinking of white wheels, perhaps those of the 5/6 wide spoke variety. Any recommendations considering the use I plan to put these things to? No racing, just appearance, but of course, I'd like to feel confident they're not going to crack, or otherwise be "junk". What's the best deal out there for what I'm thinking of doing? Thanks very much.

Here, check out the tirerack on line. You can see what the wheels look like on your car.
I would stick with 17inch or smaller.

Stupid question here, but: Does/will the stock Focus LX accommodate 17" wheels with no modifications? It's got 14's on it from the factory. Thanks again.

Go to Discount Tire and enter your car info and it will only allow wheels and tires that fit your car's wheel welds.
