Make Focus Ti Offroad Capable?
 
Does anyone know of a way to turn my 2013 Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback into a more capable offroad vehicle? I do a lot of photography and I go on a lot of backroads. I feel like it could be improved to handle that better. Also any mods to reduce paint chipping from rocks?

Thanks

What kind of tires would be best for this? I hesitate to do much in excess of tires just because I know things can get pretty pricy. How far could I get with just new tires?

Different or new tires won't get you more offroad capable, but I suppose tires, get a aluminum skidplate to replace that fabric crap cover under the engine...mudflaps may help prevent rocks and dirt thrown along sides and back of car

Tires are probably the most important part of making it off-road capable. Lift it all you want, you aren't going anywhere fun for long on day to day street tires.

I 100% agree , Good tires for traction on any stock Focus would of gone through the same Mud hole as above ( Not trying to take anything away from what he did ) I dont think your looking to go through those kind of situations anyway

I would get a a good set of tires for the kind of driving your doing and some rock guards for all 4 wheel wells

There is this tape as well , works very well , stays on during driving and comes off easy with out hurting the paint ISC RACERS TAPE

You can find decent tires, but for the diameter I chose, lift is necessary, and no a regular height focus would not of made it through the trails and mud holes we go through, as ground clearance is a must.

We use 215/65-16 General Grabber.
