7 or 8 would be a dream to own, especially with a proper suspension setup.
I vote 7 too! Damn sexy wheels!

Please tell me that was taken at your place and you're about to test-fit wheels.

No :(
I wanted to throw in a picture to show how much better they look than the ford pics

I did a quick mockup of them, and they would definitely flow better with the stock oem finish. (Excuse the bad front fender)

I picture the Fusion 19s, lower profile tires, maybe spacers (depending on offset) and an aggressively lowered Focus.

Those look great. I think #8 would look too clunky on a Focus, but #7s are perfect, except maybe for being 19" -- kinda' big on a Focus. Too bad they don't come in 18", or even 17".

I like big wheels, so I am biased, and I feel the Focus (Mk3 at least) deserves 17s or bigger. (20s being the absolute limit)







I'm sure we've all seen the SGM hatch with the 7's installed, wish they were cheaper, though
