2009 Ford Focus Wheel Option - What do you think?

This wheel will probably be part of a package on the 2009 Focus and for go for $600-700. Let me know what you guys think.

The ORANGE that you see corresponds to some exterior treatments, but it may end up just being BLACK.

I Think it could look ok on the right color of car with it dropped about two inches and dark windows, Im kind of like some of the other guys since I got my wheels. about the chrome it may have to much flash, I kinda wish that I would have got svt wheels instead of the chrome I really think the svt wheels are very hard to beet they really give the focus that kick in the pants bad attitude look that nothing else can.

no need for chrome..

and that orange ring... it needs to either be on all spokes... or none....

now, a silver rim, with the orange changed to black, and on all spokes? HOT!

Tom,

I like the style. I think it is important that the Focus offer more wheel choices. According to the Ford brochure, the 2008 Focus has only FOUR wheel choices, two 15" and two 16".

Compare that to the 2009 Mustang brochure which lists TWENTY TWO wheel choices in 16", 17" and 18", filling two full pages of the brochure!

I like them, but agree that the ring should be on all spokes or none.

Personally, offer the base in chrome and an upgrade to match all or certain exterior colors. I would also like to see this same wheel in black and/or silver.

I love them just the way they are. If the ring stays orange and they're 17's, I'll sell my EAPs and get a set.
