Thanks

The stock tire size on the 08-11 cars was 205/50/16 with the 16" inch "snowflake" or "sap" reproduction wheels. There is PLENTY of space surrounding the tire at stock ride height. You will have NO problem with those old ZX5 wheels and tires.

if they worked good enough for you on the 05 they will be fine on your 10, if anything the 10's have even more fender room than the 05. If you have them on hand, test fit them and see for yourself

sailor I've heard of a front brake change (larger).

You might need to try them as long as they're available.

Anyone know the deal with late build 2014 STs and 16" wheel fitment?

Just got my 2014 ST a couple of weeks ago and am already thinking about winter tire options. Was originally planning on using the wife's 16" steelies from her 2012 SE with snow tires.

However, I noticed that on Tire Rack's site, you are required to specify whether your ST is a pre- or post-3/31/14 build. If you select post-3/31, you only see 17" and 18" choices.

Any Tire Rack folks (or anyone else) know what the deal is???

sailor Check Tire Rack for a quick review of some options.

TPMS is a preference - whether you want to look at a light for 6 mo. or not.

Conti DWS is a common all season recommendation, Snows are the only choice if you want good traction when the weather really hits.

joseduvaul Hello,

I just purchased a new ride a few days ago and it only came with the Eagle F1's or whatever is shipped with the 2014 Ford Focus ST's. I will need a set of 17" rims with TPMS & either quality winter or quality all-season's to use on the car during the 6+ months of the year when weather is not so great in the Chicago-land area. Thanks!

sailor 195/65-15 would be the standard size from here:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=273962

One size smaller wouldn't be tragic, you'll be going slightly slower than the speedo indicates.

Still need to find some 15" wheels for the current car then replace 'em with the right size after you use 'em up this Winter.
