I can't remember the back of the tubines, you may be right. How much spacer would it take? Only ever had 1 set, I put them on an 87 Cougar.

Never liked them anyway.
The ugliest wheel they put on the Mustang. IMO

mmmm youd need a huge spacer... which would make the fronts stick out like CRAZY and the backs would look normal...

i cant wrap my head around the backside of the turbine rims theres no space at all i cant see how theyd even fit a mustang

Exaclty their offset is not that much different from any other factory Fox wheel.

The difference is the rotor/ wheel design. The other wheels must just allow more clearance to the back of the wheel.

The Focus uses "shallower" rotor. This puts the caliper closer to the back of the wheel.

It's had to tell from the pics.

I don't think any of the other stock wheels have this problem.

Ok back from the dead. Will the 4 bolt Cobra R Replicas in 17 X 8 in the front and 17 X 9 in the rear rub? I know I need to find out the offset but these should be just as the originals were? I found a new set reasonably cheap up here in the Great White North.

It depends on the offset, your suspension, and the tires you run. No way any of us can give you a yes or no answer, but I would say yes unless you plan to take great care in making them fit. You'd have to spend time selecting the proper tire (stretched), likely run some camber, and do a lot of playing with the height of the car (aka coilovers)

*Edit* And if you're stock height be aware it's going to look awful and probably still rub, with all the stock suspension travel.

I am running an Eibach Pro Kit on my Focus. But after some searching I did come accross a set of OZ Supertursimo in white. Not really what I was looking for but still sweet.

The reps would look good, but it would definitely not be a quick 'bolt on' application. Takes a lot of work and planning to get a 9 inch wheel to fit on a focus and look decent!
