I'm also looking for rims, I have some ideas but I'm still searching for it.
Also I may be interested in body kits, recommendations .

You don't have to change suspension. Be sure the rims you get have the correct offset, and hub size, and choose the right tire for your application.

Moved to "Wheels & Tires". What you might be looking for is wheels and not rims. The rim is the outside edge of the wheel. It's not necessary to change the suspension if you get different wheels unless you get some some obnoxious size wheels like 26" because then it would require more than just a suspension kit lol. The most common aftermarket size wheels people get for the Focus is a 17x7 size wheel with a 205/45/17 tire.

Now if you ever decide on getting a suspension kit, you can ask all kinds of questions about it here in this section --> Brakes, Suspension & Chassis clicky

Now as for body kits, that would require posting your questions in the MK1 Focus section -->MK1 Focus Clicky

Good luck in your choices and welcome to FF!

Scour junkyards & the BST section here.

They are no longer avail. new, and the prices of any useable ones are going to get high.

Check the vendor section for alternatives that have a look you like.
