I think I would like it more if the wheels were bright silver or a color instead of dark grey.
And by that I mean I don't like it at all. It looks like you're trying too hard or it's unfinished or something. Looks like it is only half of whatever look you are going for.

Edit: By unfinished I mean, you have dark matte finish wheels and bright chrome headlights, chrome fog lights, chrome grille bar, etc... I think maybe the wheels could have been the finishing touch rather than the first thing you did.

Edit Edit: Really the more I look at it the more I really don't like it. Exhaust tip looks stained, no fairing on your roof rack, bright silver roof rack bars don't match anything else on the car.... Idk it seems like you don't have a direction for this car and you're just spending money on nice things.

You are absolutely right. I don't have a direction. I don't follow other people's styles, and I honestly don't care. I like the way it looks and apparently so do 3 pages of other focus owners.

I appreciate the input though.

I...I actually agree wholeheartedly with Mac. This is truly, truly a momentous occasion indeed. Better take a screenshot folks.

Those are very unique wheels and as such they should be on a car with other unique touches. Looks like an otherwise stock Focus on Tarmacs.

I agree with Mac - I don't care for the "Tarmacs" - but I disagree with you.

They're just wheels. I don't get this whole "exclusivity + special wheels" bullshit. He wanted to spend idkhowmuch on these? Good, let him. Makes him happy, obviously. And it's not like he's put them on a rusted POS, so what's the harm? He's not neglecting things that need to be fixed. Shit like "this only looks right on this car with these features, looks dumb on yours blah blah blah" means poop once the car is rolling.

That said, if your car was mine and I was hell bent on this set of wheels, I may have gone for white myself. But your reason for not doing so is valid. I probably wouldn't want to deal with the brake dust annoyance either.

But OP, you like 'em? Cool beans. I don't like 'em, so what. Props to you for taking different opinions in stride.

This makes my 16th car and I've been in every forum from cars, trucks, bikes, etc. So I'm very well trained in the arts of personal opinions.

I actually dislike every focus body ever made except this new year. But I keep clear of the other pages and stick to 2012+ sections.

I wouldn't have posted my pictures if I didn't want everyone's opinion. I welcome all comments with open arms, and an open mind. No disrespect taken no matter the comment.

Cheers!

The wheels are too unique for a generic look such as the rest of the car.

Style is subjective.

+1 for the attitude.

It's a Focus. By nature it is generic; it's a mass-produced car. So's your Golf, even though it says GTI on the back.

Wheels are wheels. Be less concerned with what "statement" the wheels make and be more concerned with how they affect the car as a machine. Do these negatively affect how his MK3 handles? I dunno, I haven't driven a MK3, let alone his.

Does it matter? Nope. It's not my money, or yours. More importantly, has he been a dick about it? Nope.
