New rims, will they fit?

Well I may be able to buy some rims/tires off of someone I know but I have a slight problem with sizing I think...

The rims are 17" Riax silver Monza rims, 7" with a 42mm offset. They are 225/45/17, is 225 too wide for the focus? I am planning on lowering it at some point in the future and will probably stick with these rims for a while.

Does anyone forsee any problems at all?

CDsilver02 runs 225's on his SVT EAP wheels, which I believe is a 49mm offset. I do believe he has minor rubbing issues like on hard turns, but he also has a coilover kit so it might be lower than the standard 1.5" that you usually see with lowering springs.

There's a sticky thread on wheels and offsets that might tell you somemore what a good range of offsets is.

That's part of the reason I went with SVT wheels is because I knew they'd fit no problem.
