16" wheels fit on SVTF?

What's up everyone? I'm new here!

I need to change the tire/wheel setup on my SVTF to accommodate (unfortunately) the Michigan winter that is coming soon.

Does anyone know if the base Focus 16" wheels will fit our SVTF? I know that the bolt pattern will match, but will they fit around our brakes?

I'm trying to come up with cheapest solution for the winter driving. I had a ZX3 and it's all-season tires were fine in the winter, so I'm thinking it may be cheaper to get some of those wheels/tires than getting new aftermarket wheels and snow tires. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

A 16" will probably fit around the brake but I wouldn't go any smaller than that. Just go to a junk yard an try them.

Check the SVT supplement to your owners manual. The last few pages show specs and such. In that section you will see that Ford has shown in print the recommended 16 in wheels for winter driving. I checked with Ford parts, and these wheels are about $100 each. Add that to the cost of 16 in tires. So I am shopping for 17 in winter tires.

Good luck... I looked all summer and found one 17 inch wheel for the SVTF! They wanted $995 mounted and balanced! Now that is with my stock rims! Seams to me you can get rims and wheels in 16's for much less... I paid $725 for my set. The rims were "new pull offs."
