Not to be that guy, but what wheels are those? They look awesome on your Focus.

Axis Sport XMX, 18x8 +45.

They're available through Tirerack, haven't seen them anywhere else.

Overall, I love them. They were released in March in a matte charcoal finish, which I liked, until they surprised me with a silver finish that came out a few weeks ago.

Hoping they won't become a wheel that everyone has, but at least I was the first to rock them.

I just ordered these for my 5dr Blue Candy Titanium. They are 17x7 with a 40 mm offset. Got them from discounttiredirect for $110 each with free shipping and a $50 rebate. Best looking ones I could find for a good price. I'll post some pics once I get them on. Also found some nice ones on tire rack but shipping was more, plus no rebates.

Your stock wheels look better than those.

I just found this thread. This is great news for me. I will need snow tires next year and I have a set of after market wheels in my parents' basement from my 91 t-bird that my mom has been yelling at me to get out of there since I moved out (in 2004. lol). Next time I'm down there I need to measure the backspacing to make sure they fit.

Usually the wheel's measurements (diameter, width, offset) will be stamped into the back, on the spokes. That should be more helpful than a tape measure!

I hate to sound ignorant but when speaking about offset, I always get confused on the direction. For an example, if you had two identical wheels, whether 17 or 18 and one was a 40mm offset and the other was a 50mm offset, which one would stick farther to the outside?

The ET40 wheel would stick out farther than the 50.

The higher the number, the farther the wheels sink in from the fender.
