bowersdaazian If you have a big drop (more the 1.5") you may need fender rolling to make the slipstreams fit w/ 215 rubber, but it wont be too bad.
i know someone running rota grids (same specs as the slipstreams) with 225 rubber on them and he didnt have much rubbing (though he did have race springs and koni's).

imprtslyr0223 yeah i think they should fit. i know there is at least one focus rolling around on them.

Jhatch3 Will the rota slipstreams fit our cars properly? I think I saw that the offset on those was 40mm, while the recommended offset for our cars is 42mm-49mm.

bowersdaazian I think the SVT wheels are average for a 17x7 wheel. A light weight wheel is anything under 18 lbs for a 17" wheel, IMO.
Rota's are very light (subzeros as well as slipstreams and grids..)
another good brand is team dynamics and centerline wheels.

sexy2002svt No, the stock SVT wheels would not be considered "light weight", and Rota makes good light weight wheels............

Jhatch3 I know that Rota makes some lightweight wheels..the rota slipstreams in particular are very light. I believe the 15" are 12lbs and the 16" are 13lbs-14lbs....these are just estimates though.
