Ford Racing Wheels
 
Hey! just saw these on Ford Racings website. What do you guys think? Are they worth the money? Also I'm thinking of putting them on my 2012 Platinum White Titanium hatch, do you fellow focus drivers think that would be a good combo? Love to hear your thoughts on it![ffrocks]

I can't knock on chrome anymore because after rangermclarens chrome 5 spokes i kinda have a soft spot for em.. black wheels are always nice and always a safe buy.

Chrome wheels on a white car just, works. Just as well as black on chrome.

If that 29lbs and change is the actual weight you're adding some boat anchors to the driveline and suspension.

Like i said you can pull it off.


But yea dude you are looking at 116~ pounds just on wheels not including tires. It's essentially carrying around another person at all times lol

200lbs still wont make much a difference though and, being a street car, a good looking wheel trumps a light race wheel.

Bunk, that kind of weight will have a noticeable impact on acceleration, braking, not to mention gas mileage. There's plenty of good looking wheels available that weigh a lot less (aesthetics is in the eye of the beholder anyway). Why make your car perform worse for the sake of appearance alone? Doesn't sound like much of a fair trade-off when you think about it. And there's a lot of great looking race wheels out there as well.

On my cars, it's a very fair trade off. Then again, everyone calls my junk ugly.

For the price, I'd get a set of O.Z.'s. Those are crazy expensive!!
