15 spoke 5 x 108

Ok so I've been looking for a few months for a 15 spoke wheel for my 2012, i love the old euro wheels on the old focus but sadly their only 4 bolt. Im a college student so a can't really afford the OZ super-turismos ($249- $345)
and the only other option i can find is a Velocity wheel and it appears to fit a 5 x 108 and 5 x 110, they don't appear to be a quality product.

http://www.carid.com/velocity-wheels/vw257-112858.html

Anybody see anything else online? Otherwise I'm probably going with Sparco's assetto gara because for the cost and the quality their pretty good deal. I know I'm asking a lot for quality at a low price, but I'm hoping i find something to meet me half way.

30 lbs is more like an anchor not a wheel. You didn't mention what wheel diameter you're primarily interested in.

30lbs for a 17" wheel? That's really heavy and it will affect your acceleration to the point you notice it.

Rial makes a wheel called the Zamora that might be similar to what you are looking for. For the 17's it's 21.2lbs, which is probably pretty close to the OEM Focus 17's. They are lost pressure cast too so they should have similar quality to OEM wheels too which means they might stand up better.



Rial was a not so successful F1 team in the 80's, I don't know much about their rims though.

Mercury Montego factory wheels might be an option, sometimes factory wheels can be found cheap. 18"
