Will these rims fit?

I want this pair of XXR 527s, they are 4x100..so i want to get an adapter to make it from 4x100 / 4x108. These are the rims

http://www.ebay.com/itm/330853274883...=p5197.c0.m619

and these are the adapters

http://www.ebay.com/itm/4x4-5-4x114-...26bf07&vxp=mtr

Will this set up work with my 2000 ford focus zx3? (Stock height, wrapping in 205/40/17's)

That setup will "fit" however

the adapters will make the wheels stick out one inch further. not too big of a deal if you like that look.

The rims are a 0mm offset, stock focus rims around around 50mm (give or take a few mm depending on which stock rim) 50mm is just under 2 inches. so add that to the adapter that rim, and they will be sticking out of your fender almost 3 inches.

So it will "work" yet its not a good idea at all.

even with +25 offset wheels that spacer will kill you (its 1inch = 25.4mm)

use this to figure out a good fitment: http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp


40mm offset on a 16x7 is a safe fit with a 205/50 while still looking aggressive. a 16x8.25 at 0 offset will stick out a lot. There is a happy medium between the two if you dont mind fender rolling/ pulling/ stretched tires and a lot of comber. Hopefully someone will chime in with specs for that, or just search

Not worth the hassle when there are wheels in the same style available that are made to fit our cars.

The 3 I linked to above are all 10 spoke as well. XXR does not make that wheel in an offset that will work, with an adapter, for our cars.

Those adapters wouldnt work anyway as they go from:

Vehicle: 4x4.5 / 4x114.3 or 4x100
to
Wheel: 4x4.25 / 4x108

you would need the opposite going from the 4x108 to the 4x114.3 or 4x100
