New 15 SE Gray Hatch, what are good brand rims fit the focus

I just got my son a '15 SE Hatch dark gray with leather and sport package rims.

I want to swap the stock 17' out for new 17"

1: I think they are 17x7. i liek to try 17x8 or 17x8.5 anyone do 8.15 on stock 215? Too much? I think 8 would be perfect. A slight stretch with a small drop.


I am looking for some advice on brands that people use on here for 17? I have an audi and I know vossen/niche are popular but dont have the bolt pattern/size for the focus.

I like the look of a spider/multi like XXR 518,527

Also color I want a dark setup but not sure if black or titaium/chrome look so any pics would be cool too of setups.

Any advice to start looking at brands?

Moved to Wheels & Tires, you should also look in the Builds & Showroom section as well as MkIII picture threads for samples.

For brands take a look at fifteen52, Enkei, or Sparco. Those are just a few that offer wheels in our 5x108 bolt pattern.

Companies like XXR (as you noted) and Rota do too, but they're replica wheels and I'd personally avoid them.

Depends on the style/look you seek. Budget has a big role to play on wheels too.

I pulled the trigger on TSW Bathurst Gloss Gunmetal 17x8 +40
I saw them on a few Hatch's and had the right look for me.

See attached pic. These are 18" but my car should have a similar
look in dark gray 17"
