Not a big fan of stancing but it does look good on certain cars. Not something I'd do but power to those who have done it

im surprised no one has brought up the point that you can have wheels bored, or redrilled to fit the focus. any wheel made for honda can be drilled to our specs, and as for the people that complain that they cant get into their driveways, they should go get some wood or concrete from the store and make it work. here is some insperation for the op, no foci, but good examples of the different styles and some badass pictures http://www.stancenation.com/

I like their motto, I think it describes stanced pretty well:

Be careful with blanket statements that ANY wheel made for a Honda can be drilled to our specs.

First off, as a general rule you'll want to make sure the wheel in question has enough material to either dual drill or to fill/drill. Cheap cast aluminum wheels do not take to fill/drill very easily. In fact, I'd consider that a waste of money. Next, you need to check the offset and center bore. Just because it fits nicely on a civic doesn't mean it will fit on your focus. Finally, you'll want to try to find a wheel that has a cover for the bolt circle, this is because fill/drill isn't pretty... and lets be honest, dual drill looks just as bad.

define cool... its stupid if its ur only car or ur daily driver. its cool to take to shows every now and then. it will ride really bad. it will scrape on dips u will have to go a lot slower over bumps and dips. go in a dip to fast, like a intersection and u could ruin ur front bumper. it will bottom out a lot more.

I daily drive my car that sits 2" off the ground and rides perfectly fine. Probably better than yours does. It's called paying attention. You shouldn't be flying over bumps, or dips. Scraping is part of being low. It's a lifestyle and if you don't like it you don't. But if you're not low, don't act like you know how to drive a car.

Looks amazing. I prefer static stance to bagged stance. Still looks great though.
