help

I'm still trying to get some wheels I found this ones
http://mcallen.en.craigslist.org/pts/3640625940.html
I like my oem focus wheels http://www.google.com/search?q=focus...0&bih=544#i=74 but would my stock wheels look nice with some wheel spacers and a 1.5 inch drop? Or should I get new ones?

Those wheels don't fit your car; the Focus has a 4x108 bolt pattern.

A drop will help just about any car look better. As for spacers, I've recently jumped on board with the idea that they should help you perfect fitment, not be the only source of it.

From your last post (here) we told you that you must use a wheel that is 4x108. The ad you just linked to clearly says "4x100 4x112." Try to remember that please. As much as you may like another wheel or find a great deal on them, unless they are 4x108 they simply will not work on your focus.

As for the drop, 1.5" will increase your looks and make your stock wheels look better on your car. I would suggest lowering your car first and then look into spacers only after you have driven around for a while. I dont really think spacers are needed on a stock wheel with a mild drop. If you are lowering your car, be sure to budget for shocks/dampers to go with the lower springs; your stock shocks will not last long otherwise.

Also, if you have another wheel question..just post it one of your other threads you have already created about the subject. Just bump the thread with a new post/question.
