Would like to see better pictures, but 15s are already too small for the Focus, let alone on rubberband tires.

Just cause you got a good deal on the wheels, does not make them worth it

Thanks I agree, I don't see it screaming MEXI-POKE! To be honest if people wanted to have some poke, at least et10 would be perfect. Picture quality doesn't do the justice, looks way better in person.
I also thought that no one in focus world has those riken rims which makes some of rims for BBS as well. I thought it will be cool to have it.

I might consider camber bolts for the rear but the problem is that my h&r springs are maxed out without height adjuster. If I could make rear little more lower then camber will be necessary.

I totally agree with you for the rims being too small, its better to have 16" for the tire to fill the fenders better and more ground clearance.

Really? Haha look around deeper and there are plenty of cars running low offsets lol.
At least I don't have any RICER style splashed on my car. I like how it looks so good how the stock body hugs to the ground.

Yes I apologize for lousy pictures, my rear camera was scratched badly so I have been using front one and its inverted. I will try to get better pics, it shows more wheel gap than it really is.

I was just going to comment about the inverted pics.

Doesn't look like mexi-poke to me.

You should appreciate it more if you saw it in person!

Sad news yesterday, I was going to have nice 2 hour of drive with my newly installed coilovers but 10 miles out from home fuel pump crapped on me
Cost me $80 to tow it back home, wtf that is high even without tow bed?
