16 is the smallest for me

I dont think I would go with anything smaller than 16", I just think 15" would look odd

it may look odd but winter wheels can look as weird as possible.

when it comes to winter wheels its about safety not looks but i do agree you can get just as good of winter wheels on a 16" wheel as you could a 15" wheel.

My ST is due in October, anxious to see the results of your inquest on which wheels will fit.

Great job Julian on getting wheel recommendations up on TireRack.com! That's very helpful.

Some of the following info has been posted previously but I confirmed with Ford today the specs of the stock 2013 ST wheels as well as the full size spare specs which I have not seen anywhere else.

Stock 18" Wheel:
Wheel Size: 18 x 8
Backspace: 6.673"
Offset: 55mm
Hub Size: 63.3mm
Weight: 25lbs
Tire Size: 235/40/18

Spare Tire:
Wheel Size: 16 x 6.5
Offset: 50mm
Tire Size: 215/55/16

The Ford rep would not confirm any other info relating to these wheels/tires but did say that he assumes the hub size of the spare wheel to be the same as the 18" wheel as it would not make sense to be different. I asked if the spare is the same steel wheel for the regular Focus and he would not commit to an answer.

It's the exact same spare setup the Ti Handling Pkg has.

Tire Rack website isn't showing the 16" steelies as a package option. They a no go even though other 16" wheels are showing?

Thanks for the specs on the spare wheel! The steelies we carry the fit the Titanium are a 63ET so they are going to hit brake/suspension. If you want to mess with a 13mm spacer you can probably make it work, but at that point I would just go with an alloy wheel anyways.

Thanks for the info Scott.
