directional RIMS? wtf? I've never seen that. I hope that's not what that arrow is suppose to mean. I guess make sure you match them up to the correct side directional tires and not have to worry?

So, they'll end up extending an extra 11mm past mine.

Your fronts might poke a tiny bit, but you should be flush in the rear.

Thank you for all your input. It's greatly appreciated. I'd hate to have to deal with returning $1,000 worth of wheels because there's no way to fit them before you buy'em. Will post pics next week once the hub rings come in and the tires are mounted. I will now stop posting text, and get back to pictures :)

Absolutely! And I'm waiting for photos.

If anyone out there is looking for wheels for their 2012+ Focus, check my signature.

They should be really easy to fit, you just need to get the right size tires.

Speaking of which, it's been a little while since that post. Got any pictures of them mounted up?

Sorry for the lack of pictures. The wheels came in a week or so ago, but they had scratches on them. So we had to send them back. New wheels came in Monday, and went off to powder coating (textured gunmetal) and should be ready to install at the end of the week.

H&R Coilovers came in Friday and picked em up tuesday morning so those are ready to install next week when I get some vacation time.

Pics will be posted mid to end of next week.

Thanks again for the help.
Adam

If you haven't seen my thread in the build section. Here is updated pics with the Tarmac's on and the H&R Coilovers installed.


Tarmac's are 18x8.5 +40 with Falken 722 - 235/40/R18
