those are some huge wheels for a focus lol. i just got my svt so im a little shady on the rules for stock classes, but do the spacers and such knock you out of stock class? and do you have to roll/remove the fenders to fit those bad boys under there?

for stock class you have to run the stock wheel diameter and width. offset has to be within 0.25" (~6mm) of the OEM offset. So that eliminates this particular tire combination. And yes, there was extensive fender chopping to make this work. heres the original build thread. http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...65#post3267365

Check my post in the STF thread (post #22), and it'll give you an idea. There are a couple options to chose from when it comes to stuff like shocks, wheels, or swaybars, but the gist of it is there. Feel free ask.
