Von Max VM1 in powdercoat black with machined face and polished lip.
17x7.5, 40mm offset, 5.82 back space, 74.1 hub bore.

Definitely gonna need some centric rings I think[hihi]

Some of those 235/45R-17s should go nicely[thumb]

Eww deff not my kind of wheel, but if you like it then go for it

its a nice looking wheel no doubt. I would assume your choice of wheel would depend upon what kind of look you are going for in your car. IMO these are more for a classy look in stead of your common "rally" inspired.

This^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ To each their own. It'd go good on a Lexus or similar.

Well I do tend not to move with the crowd! LOL
The recent trend toward solid black wheels or even the matte finish type leaves me dry.

I actually prefer chrome but I think those would look overly flashy on this car. The stainless exhaust tips and a bright trim strip that runs down the body under the windows I think calls for a similar aluminum finish wheels. The first Focus I looked at was a black Titanium that had the black wheels with the machine spoke face, and I liked the look of those. I could get this same VM1 wheel in chrome but I like the black accent on this one better to tone it down just a touch.

In truth, if the stock wheels I have on the car had a half-inch polished lip on the front I would consider keeping them, but I honestly do hate cleaning in between all those spokes! LOL Probably another reason I like the basic five-spoke design or the split five-spoke as on the VM1.

I'm really not planning much else in the way of exterior mods, except the slim possibility of the classic Ford dual white deck stripes...but still on the fence where those are concerned.

The wheels aren't my cup of tea, especially the faux bolts to try and make them look like 3-piece wheels. Also, 235 tires won't fit on 7.5" wide wheels.

I had 235/50-18s on 7.5in Stern wheels on my Sebring and they fit very nicely. I was also basing the tire choice on a post in the aftermarket wheel/tire thread showing a 2012 (lowered) Focus and listed 235/45R-17 on 17x7.5s and I thought it looked great.

Possibly these...same size as the first wheel I posted
