5x4.25 is the same as 5x108.

A lot of 5x108 wheels use the same hub size as the Focus. I would measure the center bore of the wheels and make sure it's the same as the Focus. I believe the Focus uses a 63.4mm hub, but measure to make sure (with something more accurate then a tape measure).

If you find out where they came from, it will be easier to know if they fit without measuring a bunch of stuff. You'll also need to make sure the offset is correct for the wheel.

The op must be really desperate or?? to be willing to chance maybe they will fit.
Comeon dude, you have a new car with wheels, you have zero need for these stupid wheels that may or may not fit.
And you worry about the gas money to go LOOK at them.
How about worrying about the $$ you spend on wheels which will screw up your car royally, after you pay to have tires put on them?
WAKE UP!
Stop being stupid.
You can find sone OTHER wheels that WILL fit you like.
Jeez.

Bring a set of calipers with you and measure the center bore of the wheel when you go. Just be up front and tell him if they don't fit you don't want them. Also check the offset, if these came of a RWD car the offset may not work.

Oh yeah good idea! And yeah I made sure I let him know and he's actually being pretty cool about it.
