I am looking to do some upgrades to my 2012 S and had a few questions. I am looking at upgrading to 17 inch rims from my 15 inch steel wheels. I was wondering what profile I would have to have so it clears the wheel wells? I was also looking into converting the rear drum brakes to disc breaks? what is the easiest way to do this and where is the best places to get parts. I will attach an image of the rims I am looking at. They are going to be powder coated lime green. I also included a picture of the Focus and my Jeep. My Focus is going to be vinyl wrapped in either Matte black or gunmetal grey.

nice, i like the idea of wrapping it flat black. I'm sure there are many different tire sizes that will work but i believe right now i have 215/50 R 17 on my 17's. Rebeldevil customs sells a rear drum to disk brake conversion.

Try going to a 215/50/17 which is what comes on the factory Focus 17's. Keep with factory tire calculations due to speedometer reading.....this will allow you not to have speedometer recalculated.

Hmmm, I've not seen those wheels on a focus before. I'm curious to see how it looks.

Moved to "Wheels & Tires". If you have questions about brakes or suspension, please refer to the section of "Brakes, Suspension & Body Chassis" to find your information.

I hope to god that does not mean each. Definitely do not have that money right now. Not after I get these rims done.

That is what they recommend for the other rims i found. I will put the color that i am looking at later.
