SVTFOOCUS I want to change mine too.. been looking around and its not that hard to find a good offset with a non focus pattern that will fit. I really dont understand how there are so many aftermarket parts for cars but no one has come out with pre drilled 4x100, 4x114.3 or even 5x114.3 hubs that will fit the svt or any other car if you want to change the factory pattern.

^very true, I almost did that but ended up finding a set of 4x108 wheels I liked.

4x108 is the suck...

SkyPilot Adapters really are a waste of time and money. Other than the points that geezer pointed out. You would have to get a set custom made. They won't be cheap. And then you gotta try and find a wheel that has the proper offset to work with the adapter. Buy the time you have gone thru all that trouble it would have been easier and cheaper to just buy 4x108 wheels and call it a day.

Geezer Keep in mind that the width of the adapter will reduce the wheel offset. A one inch adapter will reduce offset 25.4mm. For example a wheel with a 49mm offfset will become the equivalent of approximately a 24mm one. That's more than enough to create a rubbing issue (tire on fender lip). That amount of change in the offset can also change the amount of loading on the wheel bearings and accelerate bearing wear.
