I've heard 16" wheels won't clear our brakes.

The tires work though. I had them on a VW and I loved them.

If you can get a set of 16's to fit let me know.

most 16" rims will fit, this is probably going to be moved into either racing rally autocross forums, or the wheels/tires forum btw. You'll get much better responses there, and check this forum for info:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ad.php?t=83864

welcome to FF btw, and the search button is your friend

16s are better for autocrossing and it's most 15's that won't fit our [i]front[/b] brakes. i autoXed with a svt that had 18s and did remarkably well, better then I lol but i had sucky street tires.

and thanks miniboom i'll put this in the right place

Scrammer, the only reason we all have slipstreams is because they are the only ones available in the exact size and bolt pattern. Don't you think I want a set of Volks? Find me some 16x7 +45mm 108x4 Te-37s and I'll buy them immediately.

For that matter, find me ANY wheel as light at the 13.3 lb Rota for $500 shipped to my door. It's not about looks, it's about racing.


I have the 16x7 Rota Slips with 215 size Falken Azeni RT-615s. Awesome combination! And the whole set cost $930 shipped new.
