ok good deal, so any 17"s with rght bolt pattern should work?

The tires are brand new Dunlop summers 225/45/17, I've been meaning to upgrade from my 2012 SE's lowly steelies and hubcaps for a while!

So my question is what 17" rims will fit this tire and my 2012 Ford Focus SE? When I looked at the recommended tire size with the rims on tire rack they don't show these same tire specs so I'm a real tire noob haha Can I just buy any of these rims and they should fit? or is the tire width and height too tall or wide for my car?

Any help would be much appreciated!
I've ran that size for my set 17x7.5 rims when I had them on my 05 with no issues.

Idk why that tire size isnt on tire rack, try discount tire. they show that size.

keep in mind 5x108 is also the same as 5x4.25
Volvos, Jags and some other ford use this bolt pattern. kind of a limited size for custom wheels.
