New Focus Wheel ?

Just bought the kid a base model focus with the hubcaps on a 15" wheel.
What are my limitations on rim size? Will 17's or 18's work and can I pull them off a Fusion or are they not interchangeable?

Thank you

17 & 18s should work, but it depends on the tire size.

What year focus?

Fusion has a different bolt pattern, 5x114. The 12'+ Focus has 5x108 and the 00-11 has 4x108.

What year Focus, is this the 2013 silver?

Thank you for the quick responses. Most focuses I've seen run OEM wheels, is that the safest way to go for figment?
I like black wheels as I know the kid won't clean them but that's only aftermarket stuff.

I'll have to admit, this forum is more responsive than my dodge cummins forum.
