You wouldn't happen to have the offset values for the OEM wheels, would you?

It'd be nice to put together a sticky where people can report on the aftermarket wheels they've tried/bought and what exactly will fit. These days it's much harder to get a wheel that'll fit with the ludicrously high offsets they're requiring. I'd love to know how much backspacing we have to work with, and how much space outward of the hub we have.

Thankfully the relative rarity (as if that's anything to be happy with) of the 5x108 bolt pattern means that nearly every wheel built with it has a very high positive offset.

I'm a weight savings kind of guy. Especially when it comes to rotational mass. Any chance of getting the weight of any of these wheels?

The only offset value I could find was for the 16X7 wheel and that value is 55mm. I could only assume that the 17X7 would be the same.

I am taking my summer tires off today. I will weigh one and subtract the tire weight. (They are the 17" Painted Wheels)

On the ETIS page for my Focus, the 16X7 sport package wheels are listed as having 50mm offset.

This is a great thread, posting the other vehicles with the same bolt pattern is awesome since ours is a rare pattern

Also, can we please, please keep this thread here instead of damning it to Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension purgatory, where no 3rd Gen owners will ever look?

I was thinking offset myself...depending on my money situation I may buy wheels in Spring, and I've seen some very nice ones but I noticed a 40mm offset

If memory serves, the stock 18" rims are 45mm offset. My new wheels are 40mm and they fit perfectly, even with the 1" drop.
