Added Sonic Blue SVT to stable

Picked up my third Focus, finally a SVT! Now have a SE, ZX3 and Sonic Blue SVT. This one has 73000 miles and was owned by an old guy with a Vette, Ford Flex, new ST and this SVT went up for sale. There is no rust anywhere and hand washed in his heated garage. It is completely unmolested and the only thing he did was a Borla cat back. I plan to keep it stock and drive it daily even though it is so clean, I wish I could store it for the winters.

The wheels shown in the pic were included along with 5 spokes and I have a for sale posting. The 18s on Michigan roads are not a good idea! Any comments on these, good bad other, there are 300 views on my post with no comments or offers. I am selling them pretty cheap.

Looks like a clean SVT..

Yeah the wheels are a tough sell, lots of first gen guys arent a fan of 18's. Just hard to pull off well on our cars.

Nice grab man, Looks good.

I agree with the others though, those wheels gotta go. The only 18s ive seen on a focus that look good are the RS wheels (which are rare and super-sex).

Otherwise, any of the stock SVT wheels are always a good choice, all 3 look great on the focus, and arent too hard to find.

Personally, Id say grab a set of the EAP 15-spokes and paint them white or black. That always looks classy.

I have both 5 spokes and 6 spokes. Trying to decide which I like better. Thinking of powdercoating the 6 spokes black and using 5 for winter.

Are the 6 spokes more desirable as they only came on the 04??

Personally I like that they are flush spokes, that's why I prefer them.

6 spokes are nice. 5 spokes are junk, they bend like butter
