Talking

This is the 2nd winter for them.They are Firestone Winterforce tires on 16" rims.Handled last winter in Ohio quite nicely.Also put some flaps on her to cut down on salt kickup.Now she has a lil' rally car look going on.

Steelies on a ST. Looks like a sin to me.

Krnac#15, I'm just wondering if you used 16'' steelies from a standard 2012 Focus. I have read a few posts here and there with people claiming the 2013 ST can use the same 16" wheels from a standard 2012 Focus. I've been looking for a set of winter tires and wheels and it is much cheaper going with the set up for a standard Focus.

Thanks for your response, I went ahead and installed 16in steel wheels over the weekend and they just clear the front brakes. I highly suggest Tire Rack because I had to go to 4 different auto parts stores including the Ford dealership for lug nuts because the stock do not work and to my surprise I found a small package taped to one of the wheels that included lug nuts and saved me an extra $30.00.

These are 16x7 from tire rack with blizzak ws70. Clearance just makes it. I used my stock lug nuts and they were fine. I got then slightly used from an se and the lug nuts were to big so I could not use them.

Here is my setup. Taurus 16x6 wheels. I got them with All Season tires. This was at a local Cars and Coffee I don't normally park over the line.
