Tire size question for autox wheels!
 
What is the best tire size for my wheels. 205/45/16 or 215/45/16 or 205/50/16 or 205/40/16 or 215/40/16

Also open to any suggestions for cleaning these corroded wheels

I am unsure of the offset/fitment or your current suspension setup but a 16x7 wheel on a Focus would call for a 205.50.16 tire, that would put you at a stock diameter.

If you are planning on refurbishing these yourself, then some lighter steel-wool/sand paper. Once everything is smoothed out, some self etching primer before a proper painting/clear coat.

If you were planning on having them professionally fixed, then media blasted and perhaps an acid bath and then a proper powder coating of your preferred color.

Me having 205 45 16 I hate the look and comfort of the size of the tires more meat is better

For autox with an SVT a tire a little shorter than stock would help. 215 would fit well on 7" wide wheel. 225 would even be possible
