Welcome to Focus Fanatics!

You should be fine.

As for the offset. Anything between 45mm & 49mm and you should be good to go.

i would say anything between 42mm and 52mm offset. (iirc the stock 15" wheels have a 52mm ofset. the SVT wheels have a 49mm offset. if u get wheels with 40mm offset (they are common) expect to rub.
