Have seen them pop up fairly regularly as of late. And with the svt rear you can use 16" wheels no problem.
The Advancetrac parts are still available individually from Ford.

Most use a 215/45/17 or 205/45/17, most people using a 40 series are going very low and need the extra clearance, as it lowers the diameter close to an inch.

He's right, get the Ford kit. You should still be able to find a Ford Dealer with these parts available. You can also hit up junkyards or check our Buy/Sell/Trade forum. The SVT brake kit will require at least 16 if not 17" wheels up front, but not in the rear. The ST kit uses slightly smaller rotors in the front allowing all factory wheels.

Rear Disc Brake Conversion for 2007

I'm wanting to get a rear disc brake conversion done for my Focus, but I can only find one company (SSBC) that sells the kit, and I need to have a minimum 17" wheel. The issue with that is that I'm going to be putting on an Eibach Sport-Plus suspension kit next week which will drop it by about an inch. Will I be able to upgrade to a 17" and still have clearance?
