you would be fine. could even lower about 2" without rubbing. just make sure the offset isnt too drastically different

you may encounter problems. You want to stick with a offset in the range of 42-49mm

enkei makes wheels with that offset. you just have to look. also, make sure they come in the right bolt pattern. you need 4x108mm (aka 4x4.25"). there aren't a lot of wheels that come in that pattern, so it will limit your options.

check out:

www.tires.com
www.tirerack.com
www.wheelmax.com

enter your car info (for wheelmax.com they have a seperate page for focus wheels only), and let their search engine narrow down your search. just be aware that the search engine only eliminates anything that's not the right bolt pattern. the offset could still be screwy.
