Now that you mentioned, they almost look alike. We don't get this variant in Malaysia.

Just to get some opinion. Focus suits more spokes or less spokes ? And what colour will match ingot silver sedan ? Appreciate some feedback as having headache how will it look like once installed.

- Wheel weight source: TireRack.com
- Stock tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 3 235/40ZR18. TireRack lists them as 22 lbs. and I weighed my own @ 4500 miles and they are are 22lbs.


19 lbs.

I wish our cars were 5x112mm
Then I'd be able to throw these babies on it.

Normal every day. 17x7.5 +45 with 235/40



Winter setup. Stock 16" wheels and tires.



Newer wheels. They are a secret for now but know that 17x9's will fit!

Still really like these and are pretty nice for a $115 wheel. These seem a bit common in my area but most are the black version which is the very reason I went with gunmetal.
The Conti DWS is the best A/S tire I've driven on but get a bit sketchy on packed icy roads but are better if you have an inch or two of snow to drive on. Definetly would want real snows if this was a winter driver. In the dry the grip is solid and the breakaway is predictable but still acts like an A/S at the limits but I have no regrets going with the tire.



Got a little over 5000 miles on 'em and have noticed no wear yet.
