Has anyone tried different wheels on their 2013 Focus ST? I tried to order a package from Tire Rack but was told since they have not had a ST in their shop, they cannot update their web site to show the wheels you can use.

state farm realy told you 7k for a year? i have a ticket for 75 in a 65, and had to months of horrible luck and im paying roughly 1400 every 6 months for full coverage on my 03 zx5 and insurance cost is higher here. got a quote for a brand new 2012 focus at 250-260 a month, comes out to about 3k a year i wouldnt image a st being another 4k more a year.

Yeah, I'm not exactly known for making up these kinds of things. It's their way of saying "we don't want you".

If any of you guys get a chance of installing the wheels you are thinking about getting. Would you mind posting any fitment issues. Tire Rack still does not show a wheel to select if you enter you have a 2013 ST model vehicle. I just tried and got the message:
"We're sorry. There are no wheels that match your current search criteria."

Thanks

I need to stop complaining every month...I pay $160 a month for a 2012 Focus SEL, and that includes life and hospital insurance through State Farm.

Perspective is everything!

Hey man, curious as to how old you are. We are pretty much neighbords and I'd like to know some rates you are getting.

I'm 23 and I got a quote from Geico for $5/month less than my Charger... 143/month compared to 148.

(I'm from Taylor BTW)
