Winter Rims/Tires

I have a 2013 focus titanium on order. Was thinking of replacing the 17 inch rims with some steel rims and different tires for the winter. I wondered if there is a recommended rim size to go with. Do 17 in steel rims for the focus exist or would I be better off going with a 16 inch rim. I wouldn't want something that affected the speedo that much. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Thanks,
16" would be the best bet. 225/55/16 is just a tad taller than the OE size.

there are many threads currently for winter tires on the newest generation focus, which can easily be searched for.

also, if you put your car (or a 2012 Focus, if it isnt updated) into the Tirerack.com website, it will spit out your winter tire options.

15" wheels and tires will be your best bet for cost and performance.

16" packages can be found used, in great shape from Volvos, Jags, etc for a fraction of the price as well.
