Upgrading rims
 
Im looking to maybe upgrade to some different rims on my 12 focus se hatch. I dont know much about which rims would fit and what not, as im aware that its more that just rim size. I really like the sparco, motegi, and xxr 527s but these are just a couple I've found. Id like to be able to keep the stock tires and get them put on the new rims if that would be possible. If someone could tell me what exactly I need to be looking for, size wise, that would really help. Also any suggestions of somewhat inexpensive but still nice looking rims that would look nice with the focus? Thanks!

If you're looking for cheap wheels do not get off brand because all you're going to end up with is bent and pitted rims. You said you like Sparco's and the Assetto Gara's are both inexpensive and decently well made, they also come in whatever colour you want too.

Buying wheels for the MK3 sucks because of our bolt pattern. You basically have a bunch of Taiwanese/Chinese crap, some really expensive wheels, and a handful of reasonably priced options that look good.

I have a set of Team Dynamics on my car and they are awesome. Perfect Circle is doing a discount buy right now too:

I really like those Assetto Gara's a lot. How would I find out what bolt pattern I have?

Sorry, but I wish I had the problem of any 5 bolt pattern on my focus.

Carry on...

The MK3's have a 5x108 pattern. I have a 40 offset on my rims which work really well too.
