Used to have a Mustang, loved those wheels whenever I saw them.

you sure they fit? RWD offset vs FWD offset may be something to think about for one thing. DO love the wheels though.

They did make some replica sets in the correct bolt pattern for the MN12 Thunderbird (5x108) but the mustang used the 5x114.5 mm bolt pattern which won't work for our cars without changing the hubs or using adaptors which isn't a great idea, even if the offsets would work.

SVT and MK3 focus are vastly different. I see some fender rolling in your future.
