2012 focus hatch wheel fitment
 
Hi my wife just bought a 2012 focus sel hatch and i want to get her some wheels for it. I really like the fifteen52 wheels but i see that they only have 5x108 size in the 18x8.5 wheel. How hard is this going to be fitting this big ol wheel on there. Only looking for like a 215 tire. Any help would be awesome.

That might be too wide of a rim considering the Ti handling pack wheels are 8" wide and Ford put in a turn limiter.

I can't say for sure but that might produce some rubbing on tight turning. I would not personally put a 215 on a 8.5" wide...I wouldn't go anything less than 245, but I don't like the stretched look either.

yeah i dont want to stretch them either. Why did they have go with such a weird pattern. There is a ton of 5x100 or 114. i still like the sparco wheels too.
