News on the 2013 st!!!

We've got a local customer who is looking to get a package for the winter but of course, we haven't had one in the shop yet so we can't get the proper specs on the clearance. Well he's coming in today and we will be taking every possible measurement on it so we'll have fitments on this in the upcoming weeks!

I'll keep you posted as soon as the fitments are complete, but let me know if you have any direct questions on this in the meantime.

That's an interesting brake caliper clip, looks more functional that the stupid spring loaded clips on the 00-04s.

Probably clearance using 15" or 16" wheels, me thinks.

Yup, checking to see how small we can go for winter packages. And confirm suspension, fender and caliper clearance on the wheels that we carry in all sizes.

I JUST ordered today through Hunter (super nice guy BTW), the Bremmer BR09 18x8" wheels and Conti DWS 235/40's for shipping next week. If your customer is getting a similar set up let me know if there is any issues.

Wondering about the 45mm offset more than anything else. Brake clearance shouldn't be an issue, but wondering about any possible fender rubbing problems with the wheel sticking out 10mm more.

Sounds like it should work, not 100% though. Let us know and we should have all our data loaded by the begining of next week with ones we know fit.

Julian, i hope you can post up what the radius is to the outside of the caliper.

Sometimes there are wheels that you dont stock that might be made to work. (ie. like all the 15" wheels that can be made to fit over the SVT brakes if you look hard enough).

So, when the time comes, we'll be able to browse 16" and 17" (if not 15") wheels for this car in addition to 18"s on your site?

I'm only asking because if you search wheels for "SVT Focus," it will only show 17" (OEM) and 18" sizes, even though 16"s fit. So, whenever I want to look at 16" wheels for my SVT, I have to search "Focus ZX5" and then cross my fingers...

I know I will want 17" wheels (for a taller sidewall and more pothole resistance) when I get my ST, so it would be nice to be able to see these options.

Or is it company policy to not show wheels that are smaller than OEM for any given car? (Which would be understandable, I guess.)
