thejordan if you want it purely for wheels, just get some conversion spacers for $200-300. PM me and I can recommend a place that will custom make them out of forged aluminum to spec. I ran 20mm on my subaru with no issues. Just remember, whatever offset wheels you get, subtract 20mm (spacers). A +55 wheel would be +35 which will be aggressive if you don't have rolled fenders and f/r camber adjustment.

Supramk3 definitely something to look into.

Very similar, although the Mk3 I think uses a modified version of the C1 platform. Though, a lot of suspension parts work on the Mk3 Focus, so it's a good possibility, and the Mazdas are 5x114.3 for sure.

Ford parts verifies that the spindles, wheel bearings and calipers are indeed the same with a 2013 2wd 1.6 Ecoboost Escape.
(i cross referenced to the Focus S)

So swapping the rotors and hubs up front are all thats need to run 5x114.3 the rear im sure is just as easy
The new 2013 escapes have the same 5 x 108 pattern that the focus has, and so does the 2013 fusions.
