Good lick driving on staggered set up. Never rotating tires will suck.

17x7 5 spokes, with goodyear eagle gts 215/45/17

Also 16x7 rota grids with 2 good,2 not so good tires, same as the 17's

Nope, not parting with 2 of them. I'll make you a good deal on the set though.

Also I could see high speed stability being a bit off. Also what wheels are you running on the front vs back? If I remember correctly the guy used them for drag racing, I don't get the point of them being staggered other than that.

Drag racing is all staggered would be good for on a focus. Just my thoughts on it. And wasn't there someone that was supposed to buy the grids by now?

Just kidding Ted..I understand your current circumstances

Have it....sure, drive it, HAHAHA no. Last time I drove it I had to be followed, because I had no alternator and had to drive home with no lights, no anything at night after drinking a bit. Was fantastic.

Not much different than running a steel wheel, those are super skinny also.

thanks for the input guys anything helps . josh said that he was gonna try and find 2 slipstreams , and maybe run the grids on one side and the slipstreams on the other , personally i think that might be cool . since unless you were paying attention itd look right lol.

Hmm he never mentioned that to me. He did tell me he was looking at getting 2 grids off ebay, since there are single wheels on there quite often.
