Im a Dealer for most every rim on the market and I can tell you for sure theres a very small selection for wheels in a price range that is even plausible... Asanti on a Focus, they wont even allow that lol.

Trust me on this I called all the major players and only a very small few has 42+ offset 5x108 wheels. Not to mention hubcentric

Nice!

I was considering the Volvo Tethys wheels myself, but couldn't find any in good shape locally. They look great on your car.

Why the cheesy German front plate?

BTW, I saw these on a Volvo at the local Ford dealership when my girlfriend and I were buying her new car in Germany and I think they look pretty awesome. They apparently only come in 18x8 though so it might be a tight fit. The silver and darker silver part of the spokes looks much darker in real life and I think it would be a good look.

I changed my mind and am looking for a lightweight option

I have decided to make the form secondary and make a drop in unsprung weight my focal point. So I am definitely looking at 17" Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 17x7 7.9Kgs / 17.42Lbs Are there any others I should check out??? What would you say is the best offset in a 17x7 on this car??? +40 +45 +50, I know +50 is the OEM spec but I would like the wheel to set out a little more. So I'm leaning toward +40

Does anyone know how much my 16" steelies with hubcaps weigh???

Because it looks good and it's "registered" to the same place in Germany where they make the Euro spec Focus.

Nice wheels, TD have to be my favorite

I'm really leaning toward TD PR 1.2 but in a 17x7 +40 17.42lbs with a 20lb 215 50 17
