rota grid offroads, low offset

Hi all ,

I know I'm new but I'm a long time lurker. I've been looking for the exact wheels to set off my focus, with the correct offset to be "flush". I am looking at rota grid offroads in black, 16x8 with a 30 offset or possibly 25, so the rim would be perfect on the edge of the fender or have a bit of "poke" that would look great with some 195x45r16s. But the minimum order is 3 sets of the wjeels. Any one else interested in rotas for their focus? It would be a super low production run and a wheel that no one else would really have on a focus ( I know they have a few of them out there but its hard to find them in 4x108)

Thanks again and I love the forum!

sorry about that i thought i put that in the first post - they would be 699 per set.

i haven't pm'd him, but i'll check it out thanks! the main reason i wanted to get these custom made is because i am trying to go for the "hella flush" look, and there's not much out there with a low offset for the focus

I don't want mustang wheels, and every wheel company I have seen the wheels they have for mustangs are either replica cobra wheels or american racing wheels... I can't find any tahat are the style I'm going for and still the correct offset

I'm sure you'll be able to find some folks who would be down. My main reservation is that 16" wheels with 195/45 tires aren't going to fill the wheel wells very well. That would be perfect for something like an Integra, but the Focus needs 17" or 18" wheels to get away with tires that small.

You might also have more luck getting wheels with et35 offset and then using spacers for your own application. 8" wide with et30 would be pushing it, and et25 isn't going to appeal to many people.

Alright thanks I'll research through the forums and try and find the exact size that would look good on a focus... I'm really new to the focus so I don't know what size would look the best, thanks for the help man! I found a thread on focal jet of a guy with cobra wheels in 17x9 that looked really good, but as stated, I'm not a fan of the mustange wheels. Thanks again sir and I appologize for not knowing!

For comparison, here's a set of 17x8 wheels that are around et30 offset (owner isn't quite sure). I don't think you'd want to go lower than 8" et30.
