Now there are local "sport car shops" but They don't touch domestic cars as "there isn't a market for them here!" Hello I want stuff for mine! No market!?!?! There's 4 02's and 4 03's here.... I guess 8 isn't a big market though!?!?!

<------ me driving back to the "real world" in Feb 05!!!!!!! Get me out of this place (alaska) If you watch long enough you'll see him go through all 6 gears! LOL!

At least you have a CAR! When I was stationed at Ft Rich for a little over three years, I didn't have anything to drive--let alone an SVT Focus! Took the damn bus everywhere. Had to bum rides to get midnight breakfast over at Elmendorf. GOD, I hated Alaska in the winter.

As for those wheels--yeah, they'll look decent on a blue Focus. I think the white's look better, but you said you're sick of cleaning off brake dust, so go with the dark ones.

Sincerely,

Beetle

im a little impartial to 5 spoke rims but those will give you a decently sharp look without to much glamour and will be easy to clean. i have also heard they are heavy and one thing you will want to look at with heavy wheels is gas. i had some really heavy wheels on for a while and my miles to the gallon went down a lot.

Well i ended up buying the first wheels i looked at today. Come to find out these wheels are going to be very rarely found on a focus, as they stopped producing this wheel for the focus because of the unusual bolt pattern or something and the focus was the only car with the certain bold pattern. I got them in Gun Metal, and they will be at the shop for pickup mid, next week. they have to ship two wheels from Tennessee and Two wheels from Chicago.
