Alright, so time haz come for new wheelz. I have come to the Rota Slipstreams. I have a question on size & fitment.

15x7.5: 13.5'sh lbs, needs 5mm spacer to clear front SVT stock calipers. 225/50 tires!

16x7: 215/50 tires, not sure how much more these weigh but would they clear the stock SVT front calipers and how about the Willwood BBK?

Anyone know where I can find these as well. I have found them on Ebay but theyre a set of 4 15x7.5 in white for $520'sh, not including shipping.


I do want a set in BRONZE if anyone knows where they can be had let me know plz!

Rota Slipstreams are only 12~13lbs in a 15, and 14~plus a few ounces in 16 so go 16. I still think 15in wheels look too tiny on a Focus since the wheel arches are so big and the rears are not really centered in the wheel arch if it is a 2000~2008 or so. Plus there is a much better choice in 16in rubber than 15 so there is that as well. Love the bronze or white. Everyone is getting so into black wheels, I may have my Konig Zero Ins painted red on the spokes when I get a chance since they are anthricite grey in the rim and wheel, and have silver spokes and the grey part has a red stripe.

So I called 18 on verifying the availability of these Slipstreams and the lady asked me if I can wait til next year when they'll get more in. really??

... I didin't even attempt to answer that question

I did find a few sets on Ebay but I hear that thats not any better. Any one know where I can score a set?? I want some new wheelz real soon here.

They are all over the place for sale. When I was looking for wheels last month there were four sets on here.

Dang, thats the color ZX5 I wanted but. .. they dont make the SVT in that color

text me what youre asking for those wheelz?

Also, I know I recently posted sum noobi'sh modz but I had to get away from this CAI design. I know you get more powa from colder air but give me a break! More power shouldn't come at the cost of a dirty/soaked filter.
That I cannot deal with ... NO!!!!

mkay new modz im thinking of gett'n nao!

and

then

and finally...


Are any of these any good?!
