Wheels!

Good afternoon,
Just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Holli and I just purchased an 08 focus ses. I'm new to the focus community and I'm looking to see what everyone has for wheels and or any recomendations on wheels. Thanks in advance. :)

Hmm - hop off the T-way at the Geneva exit & head north, if you fall in the Canal you're there.

Welcome to FF!

SVT styles and the similar optional multi-spoke 17" wheels for your model are the best for used take-off types you can look for, keep an eye in the BST section here if interested plus local ads.

That gives options for 5 or 6 spoke, plus that multi-spoke variety in quality wheels that fit well and are usually reasonable.

Aftermarket is wide open for styles, remember that you need ones to fit the Focus (4 x 108 bolt pattern) so common Honda wheels at 4 x 100 won't fit. Tire Rack ads are useful as a start to looking at styles, after checking the wheels stickie in Wheels & Tires here or looking in the Showroom section.

The 6 spoke SVT's wheels aren't quite a bolt on affair. You'll need a 5mm spacer, or grind the caliper bracket slightly as I show here:

Nope, way down the road in Lockport - north of Buffalo area.

Traveled past there so often I can't forget the Geneva/Lyons exit, gotten off there to go South or East many times but maybe once going North.

I have a set of OZ Superleggera 17X7 wheels I am taking off my SVT brake equipped 2000 track car - I am going to 5 lug hubs so they no longer fit. I don't know how perfect your wheel requirements are, but these are pretty good for track wheels. They are in Phoenix. Although hard to see, they are the wheels in my avatar.
