^^^16X6 is stock for 16" wheels.
16X7 is a very common size to switch to, with the stock 205/50/16 tires.

More info here:
Ford Focus Wheel & Tire Information
^^^Pay close attention to the "offset" notes.
45mm and greater is preferable when looking for aftermarket wheels.

Check out the "Kazera" line at Tire Rack. There's some nice wheels to choose from, and they're reasonably priced.

In a 16" wheel, our pickings are mighty slim. I have found the following adhere to the =>45mm offset rule. Note: There may be other colors or finishes available for the listed wheels.

Kazera KZ-R
16x7 Finish: Silver Painted
Weight: 17.6lbs.
16x7 Offset: +45mm Backspacing: 5.83" Bolt Pattern: 4-108
Rec. Tire Size: 205/50-16

MOTEGI TRACK TRAKLITE
Offset: 45mm Backspacing: 5.70" Bolt Pattern: 4-108
Rec. Tire Size: 205/50-16
Weight: 12.5lbs.

Rota
Grid Racing
16 x 7
4 x 108
+45

Rota
Slip Stream
16 x 7
4 x 108
+45

Rota
Spider
16 x 6.5
4 x 108
+47 +48

Thats it. I have found others that have like 40 or 42mm offset, but the chances they will rub goes up accordingly. If you find any others please post them. I am looking myself.
Small note: Does not include Ford OEM rims.

Good find! But they don't have any North American dealers, so I have to assume there out of my price range. Also it's a little disturbing that you have to send them an email for a quote. Sorta like "If you need to ask the price then your at the wrong place".

misc info: Wheeldude responded. Even though Rota lists a +42 offset for the RB's, they cannot get them. Waiting for a response from Rota as to 'what's up with that stuff'.

IIRC, there is a distributor in CA.
I know there's FF members that have purchased Team Dynamics wheels.
