swapping hubs
 
Anyone done any cross referencing of the hubs on the 2012+ focus's? I'd sure like to find a way to switch over to a different bolt pattern for the wheels. Something like 5 x 114.3

and yes I did search.

like if fusion, taurus, or escape, brakes fit?

I think the Escape is the only one that might, it's built on the same platform. The Taurus and Explorer also share a platform with one another, but not the Focus, and I think the Fusion has yet another platform all it's own.

Ford parts verifies that the spindles, wheel bearings and calipers are indeed the same with a 2013 2wd 1.6 Ecoboost Escape.
(i cross referenced to the Focus S)

So swapping the rotors and hubs up front are all thats need to run 5x114.3 the rear im sure is just as easy

The new 2013 escapes have the same 5 x 108 pattern that the focus has, and so does the 2013 fusions.

Very similar, although the Mk3 I think uses a modified version of the C1 platform. Though, a lot of suspension parts work on the Mk3 Focus, so it's a good possibility, and the Mazdas are 5x114.3 for sure.

definitely something to look into.
