ordered new focus and new wheels and tires at the same time

I ordered a 2013 sfe in tuxedo black with the winter package and exterior protection package. sfe is the cheapest way to get disc brakes all around. I had planned on getting the car first and then ordering wheels and tires but could not pass up the current promotions here in southeast michigan. I hope this stuff will all fit. Momo winter 2 in 15x6.5 40offset-205/65/15 good year assurance tripletreds all seasons. oredered 73.1 to 63.4 aluminum hub centric rings and a mcgard acorn bulge installation kit with lock in m12x1.5. definitely gonna put antiseize on the aluminum rings. I dont think anyone will wanna steal 15 inchers even though they look nice. i like a softer ride and in that size the height should fill the wells alittle better and with a 40 offset they should stick out the same as the 215/55/16. way lighter, smother ride, should retain good gas mileage, excellent all season traction, should also look a bit retro with the higher sidewall. let me know if i made any mistakes. i know someone will chime in on the 15 inch wheels.

Looks like everyone wanted to prove you wrong. Maybe if you had pictures?

Three years later and 14000 miles into a 14 focus now and after playing with different tire n wheel combinations I went back to my old habit smaller wheel and 205/65/15 again. It's the only thing that gives a good ride on these mk3 focuses

I actually like that look but why do your brakes look off color? (Sorry for the post hack)

I just washed and waxed it and didn't drive it yet. Just that surface rust that shows up when ya wash and don't drive it right away. Middle of January in Michigan and I was able to wash the car in driveway. That's a first! Winter comes back tomorrow though.
