WTB 05 Focus Wagon wheels

I'm looking for some wheels for my Dad but it turns out 4 on 4 1/4 is pretty rare, at least according to the local tire shop. He's willing to pay $25 a piece for some wheels he can mount his snow tires on. I live in Vancouver WA so if anyone in this area has a set for sale and wants to get rid of them, shoot me a PM or an email.

I looked for an introduction thread but didn't find one so my first will be my wtb post.

Edit-He drives an 05 Wagon and lives in Eastern Oregon where he has little opportunity to pick these up himself.

Well you won't get much of anything for $25 a piece. That's even oushing the low end for black steel wheels, but if that's waht you're looking for try a Discount or America's tire. They'll get you a good deal.

Yea he's kind of old school when it comes to cost. I might be willing to go a little more but for what these wheels will be doing most of the year, sitting in his shop, he's just not going to pay much. That kind of rules out new wheels of any kind.

Still looking for these wheels.

I'm willing to deal if we're in the right ball park.

Bump

Some information about what would interchange with this wheel would be appreciated since I'm not getting a lot of hits for my WTB thread. I'd sure like to widen my options if I could.

I've been pouring over the Craigslist for my area for the last days and weeks but found nothing.


I had checked the j/y's locally and had called another one in the next town but had no luck. I did find a yard out of my area that had an 04 Focus so I called out there to see about the wheels. She had no wheels but gave me a lead on another yard that does a pretty good business in wheels and was closer. I called there and sure enough, then had a set of 14" wheels for $35 a piece. I prepaid and will pick them up some time in the next few days.

Thanks for the responses. You'll all get free stuff in the mail.

Just kidding.

14" wheels.......will they clear the calipers? With 15" wheels it's very close. FYI. Ford contour 15" wheels will fit your Focus. They are much easier to find in a junk yard, and cheap.

I have no idea if they'll fit. The guy selling them said they would but I know better than to believe a salesmen. I have to pick these up and drive them to Eastern Oregon so it won't go over too well if they don't fit.
No I didn't know about a Conture, thanks.

I called the j/y back. I'll see what else is available.

My guess is that 14" wheels won't fit. I've never heard anybody ask about 14" wheels before. I'd certainly get a second opinion on that before making a big trip.

Focus wheel facts...
