Thanks for the specs on the spare wheel! The steelies we carry the fit the Titanium are a 63ET so they are going to hit brake/suspension. If you want to mess with a 13mm spacer you can probably make it work, but at that point I would just go with an alloy wheel anyways.

Thanks for the info Scott.

Kiota Tire Rack website isn't showing the 16" steelies as a package option. They a no go even though other 16" wheels are showing?

The Ford rep would not confirm any other info relating to these wheels/tires but did say that he assumes the hub size of the spare wheel to be the same as the 18" wheel as it would not make sense to be different. I asked if the spare is the same steel wheel for the regular Focus and he would not commit to an answer.
It's the exact same spare setup the Ti Handling Pkg has.

I'll keep you posted as soon as the fitments are complete, but let me know if you have any direct questions on this in the meantime.
Any bbk upgrades yet? Being 18''s are stock, Anyway the frrp's for mustangs work?

scottso Great job Julian on getting wheel recommendations up on TireRack.com! That's very helpful.

Some of the following info has been posted previously but I confirmed with Ford today the specs of the stock 2013 ST wheels as well as the full size spare specs which I have not seen anywhere else.

Stock 18" Wheel:
Wheel Size: 18 x 8
Backspace: 6.673"
Offset: 55mm
Hub Size: 63.3mm
Weight: 25lbs
Tire Size: 235/40/18

Spare Tire:
Wheel Size: 16 x 6.5
Offset: 50mm
Tire Size: 215/55/16

The Ford rep would not confirm any other info relating to these wheels/tires but did say that he assumes the hub size of the spare wheel to be the same as the 18" wheel as it would not make sense to be different.

My ST is due in October, anxious to see the results of your inquest on which wheels will fit.

alaskanzx5 when it comes to winter wheels its about safety not looks but i do agree you can get just as good of winter wheels on a 16" wheel as you could a 15" wheel.

mikebontoft it may look odd but winter wheels can look as weird as possible.

16 is the smallest for me

I dont think I would go with anything smaller than 16", I just think 15" would look odd

Holden So, when the time comes, we'll be able to browse 16" and 17" (if not 15") wheels for this car in addition to 18"s on your site?

I'm only asking because if you search wheels for "SVT Focus," it will only show 17" (OEM) and 18" sizes, even though 16"s fit. So, whenever I want to look at 16" wheels for my SVT, I have to search "Focus ZX5" and then cross my fingers...

I know I will want 17" wheels (for a taller sidewall and more pothole resistance) when I get my ST, so it would be nice to be able to see these options.

Or is it company policy to not show wheels that are smaller than OEM for any given car? (Which would be understandable, I guess.)
