Not with that offset. My 17x9's are close to touching the front coilovers. They are +36 offset.

The lip of the rim sticks out past the front fender. I have to have them milled down which will make it closer. I can't stand when rims poke.

I posted this in the wheel forum, but am putting it in here too since this thread helped me with figuring out what new wheels to get. The new wheels I got were 17" Assetto Garas, which replaced my 18" THP wheels.

I was figuring to lose about 10 lbs per corner but ended up with just 6 as the 18"ers weighed 46 lbs and the Sparcos (with ContiProContact 215/50 LRR tires) 40 lbs.

However after a couple thousand miles, I'm seeing about a 10% increase in mileage (3-4 MPG). When summer comes around, it'll probably be even better

Bolto is online now

Im looking at buying a used set of 17" Coventry Hornet wheels with 225/55R17 tires.
wheels have a 42mm offset.

will these tuck on my Focus S?
