2011Fiesta I like both of those, buttttt I'm not in the market for wheels just yet but I honestly don't think those would suit my desires

Ox-y-GenIII I'd buy some EKM3's (18"x8") if they fit. Some sites have them at $180-$190 a wheel. Cheap.

Also a necessity would be the correct bore too.

Seriously Focused .......over here perfectly happy with the nice OEM wheels that came with my sport package.

I'm going to start talking to vendors to work out the logistics of having something like RPF1s produced for the MK3 Focus community.
I <3 RPF1s. I wish WORK also did fitments that would work for the Mk. III.

Ox-y-GenIII I have messaged sooooooo many companies that have quality wheels that catch my eye, and each and every single company can't do custom MK3 fitments..... Uhh.

I just had sent one more email today to VMR wheels to see what they say.

otherwise I may have to settle for some Enkeis

320kbps I changed my mind, I would buy RPF1 18's in SBC in a heartbeat! right now! whip out the card!..................yeah I would be interested.

The stock 17x7 are about 21-22 lbs.



Priced per wheel. These are full fledged racing wheels used by professional race teams all over the world. When you compare pricing to the competition, they are an amazing deal.





Both the Raijin and the EKM3 are great wheels, but they are a bit heavier. An 18x8 Raijin comes in at 20 lbs, which puts us pretty close to the stock weight. MSRP is also lower on these styles since they are manufactured in Thailand instead of Japan. Our factory in Thailand puts out an amazing product though.

If there is an overwhelming consensus about one or two particular styles that you guys all agree on, I can certainly look in to having those produced instead of/in addition to the PF01 or RPF1.

z28ken If the Raijins were available, I'm pretty sure I'd pony up for them (I really like the thin y-spoked designs and have been searching around for a quality set).

PratoN I'm probably the only user on here that wants 15" lightweight wheels.

I bought 15" winter steelies because they were cheap, but now that I want to hypermile I realized that 15x6 (might be 6.5?) steelies are probably like... 22lbs or something. Even though they still do have a significantly reduced moment of inertia compared to the 18"s.
