will these fit?

i have a 2005 focus ST, and i just bought a set of four mr-7 rims from my friend that is moving to honduras. it is a 4-bolt pattern and i know that many focus drivers have mr-7's so i just wanted to know if there are many different bolt patterns or if i should even worry about them fitting, because i am going to get some repair work done to them and then going to get a 2 layer powder coat on them.

If they are a 4x108mm (4x4.25") bolt pattern and have an offset in the 42mm-47mm range, then you should be fine.

The 108mm lug pattern is not as common as other wheels so double check before you spend any money or invest any labor on them. As mentioned the offset is important as well. In reality, if you car is lowered or you intend to lower it a higher offset (45 to 49mm) will prevent the possibility of rubbing. Lower offset numbers (42mm) seem to work better with stock height suspensions and increase the can of rubbing when combined with shorter springs.
