2017 RS Winter tires and rims

I'll be driving my new '17 RS on the snow and I need tires and rims, I have a set of 205/50 ZR 17 tires, if I get the rims size 17, can I use them or are they too small? What other sizes (tires/rims) can I buy other then the ones they come with (235/35R19)? Thanks!!!

The OEM winter wheel and tire package is 18x7.5" and is one of the smallest wheels to clear the brembo brake calipers on the front. You'd have to look very carefully at backspacing and other attributes to see if it would even be possible to fit a 17" wheel around the brakes without causing other issues.

I've only read about one or two 17" wheels that will fit. And they are super pricey.
I don't have the info on me but if you search for it you'll find the info on an RS forum.

2017 RS Winter tires and rims

Will a set of 18” ST wheels & 235/40/18 wheels fit directly onto an RS w/o any issues?

Nope will not fit without a minimum of a 5 mm spacer.

I’m sorry I had posted the wrong tire size. So factory ST wheels with those Goodyear F1 235/40/18 tires wouldn’t fit on an RS?

Yes the factory ST 5 spoke wheel will not fit on a Focus RS without a spacer regardless of tire mounted on it. Otherwise the caliper will hit the spokes.

Hi LizJoel,
how are these tires working for you? I'm starting to worry that the summer pilot tires will be like ice-skating comes a bit of cold or snow in Oregon.
is the "95W" the load rating on this Nexen tires?

What have other folks tried?
thnak you
