Weeks of waiting for some people is a good thing...

"Honey, I'm looking at wheels for my car"

"We can't afford those right now"

*order wheels anyway*


- Fast Forward 6 weeks -

Email confirmation of shipping received.

"Honey, I'm ready, I'm going to order wheels now."

"Ok, we're good now."

They arrive the next day. Wheels, tires, ready to mount.

"Wow, that was fast"

"Yeah, amazing shipping department those guys have!"

;)

The 6 weeks part hasn't happened yet.

I'm still expecting divorce for my spending habits sometime in the future.

Man, I wish I had waited on getting my 17 inch tires 6 months ago as now I want to go up to 18s but I need to wait until I ran these tires out.

I'm guessing this is a new since these are specifically made for our focus but will this deal/wheel be available.. say 6 months to a year from now? That seems about when I would want mine and I love these wheels.

You can always buy these down the road, however I don't know I can't guarantee the discounted pricing. Also, they may or may not always be in stock as you guys know the Focus bolt pattern isn't very common so not a lot of manufacturers want to sit on them for so long.

We sure will! As mentioned, we have a good relationship with Avant Garde Wheels, so if there is enough interest (usually around 5) we can get something developed. Think of custom wheels, but without the $4000+ price tag!

I bought a set of stock OEM Ti 18" tires (with 2000 mile on them) on ebay a while back and the unmounted 18" tires are slightly smaller diameter then the stock 17" tires. Not sure if this will change once they are mounted and aired up. If they do end up being smaller in diameter my speedometer could actually be more accurate. The speedometer now shows just under 59 mph with the stock 17's when my gps speed is 60 mph.
