2 Wheel and Tire Questions.

Thank you to anyone that can help me with this. I have an 04 sedan and want to get some new wheels. I really want the 15-spoke gray 17in wheels from the 08-10 Focus (sorry, no pic). My questions are: will these fit directly on my car? (with what tires?) Also, where would be the best place to get some of these wheels?
Thanks again!

Yes there'll fit along w/ the other SVT wheels= 5 & 6 spoke ones. The wheels are a 7x17 & the oem tire size is a 215-45x17 which is popular size. Hit up Steve at Toulsey Ford, he has great prices. Or anyone dealing w/ FRPP's= ford racing performance parts. Jilian at Tirerack possibley can get you a pkg deal. He is a sponsor here.

205-45x17 is also a viable option for tires...


As for the look, Ford actually makes three slightly different versions of those 15 spoke wheels. So be on the look out for these as well:

Ford Racing Fiesta wheel:


SVT:


Then the SES wheels you mentioned:


They will all fit your Focus with out issue. Ford Racing also carries a black version and used to carry white and gold (long discontinued) So unless you are getting a great deal on the SES wheels, be on the look out for any of the above as options. Best place as far as value goes will be used on here or if you can find them locally on craiglists or similar.

Tirerack sells the SVT and the Ford Racing Fiesta wheels. Tousley Ford should carry all three versions, best to call and ask for prices/shipping

Also, O.Z. Superturismo, Sparco Pista, and Team Dynamic 1.2's are similar to that multi spoke look as well, all weigh less than the Fords.

Thanks for the resonses. I want something that says Ford or SVT (on the centercap) because I just like how it looks more oem. I guess i'll start comapring prices then.

I have the 5 spoke svt wheels, they initially had a black SVT logo center cap like the above ones. I didnt like that ( i dont drive an svt) so i ordered some black Ford logo overlays for them. So you have options if you want to keep the ford/oem badge look (or something more personalized even.)

Used OEM SVT wheels probably sell for the least amount on here, I've seen sets with tires go for less than $400

Just to help with your search. On most Focus forums, those wheels are called EAP's. They come up for sale once in a while on the BST sections of this forum and FJ.

Thanks for the info. I like the black one the best (on the FR site) so I will probably try to go for those. As far as tires go, what tiresare 'standard' I guess?
