My guess is that they were imported from europe and it cost too much.

http://www.ford.co.uk/Hidden/iBrochure/Focus Pg 26-27 shows those specific wheels as being standard on the UK Titanium models, and pg 34 shows the entire range of wheels available over there.

Ford wanted something ridiculous like almost $400 per wheel as a service part, so no wonder why they would discontinue it (assuming it did actually cost that much more than the standard wheels).

Anyone know the bolt thread size for our hubs? And what type of seat the stock bolts use? (Conical, round or flat?)

I picked up a set of Jaguar wheels and want to have everything all set before I put them on. The Jag wheels look to use a flat bolt seat.

I went with 17x7 and a 45 offset. I'm running 235x40's. I also lowered the car on coil overs and have no problems. I dropped it around 2 inches. I have full lock to lock turning with no rubbing. I have the rear set at -2 degree camber so they will fit under the fenders.

I just wanted to point out that the stock 18" Titanium Handling Package wheels do, in fact, have a 55mm offset. Photo for verification, from InsideLine's Titanium Suspension Walkaround:

I am thinking of getting some 17" volvo Tethys.
17 x 7.5 Tethys Wheels + tires. Offset is 49 and Center Bore is 65.1

Will these work well? My concern is with the offset.

Hello, 1st post.

I did a search but couldn't find an answer to this question: does anybody know the paint code for 16" sport package wheels on the 2012?

My wheels sustained some curb rash, and after a little sanding job they went from looking like this:



to this:



Obviously they need a little touch-up paint job now. I don't care about making it look perfect, since I'll hopefully be upgrading to 17's soon and need them just in good enough shape for somebody looking to buy a set of winter wheels.

Thanks for the help.

Pretty sure the ST gets 19's and 245 tires.

This guy's running 19's and 20's with no problems
http://www.loder1899.de/en/fahrzeug_3_2288.html

When you get a wider wheel, you want a lower offset and a narrower tire to push the wheels out further from the hub and make sure you clear the inner fender.

I plan on running a conservative set-up: 18x8 +45 with 225/45/18's. No drop til warranty expires.

We can run 235's (Titanium factory width) but I want to keep my gas mileage close to where it's at.

Check these out:

Doing it.

Don't know for sure, but you could probably use the same WURTH paint this guy used http://bmwtips.com/tipsntricks/wheel...uff-repair.htm

Hope that helps
