OK. So I bought some snow tires in 195/65-15 for my 2014 5dr. Focus SE off of Craigslist and I am about to buy some Windstar 15x6 steel wheels. I am wondering if anyone knows of a 3 piece center cap and trim ring set up that will fit this rim? I also like the dog dish/baby moon style center rim cover too.

I haven't bought the rims yet so.. if anyone knows for sure that there is another 5 lug 15x6 steel wheel that will take some of these old style accessories.. please let me know.

I have done some searching on ebay and found a few things so far... it doesn't really matter if it looks a bit cheesy... matter of fact... that's actually what I am going for on the winter set of rims. I want them to look old and outdated. This is all just for fun.

This is some of the stuff I am looking at so far...

I am looking for suggestions and input on the 15 inch steel wheel accessories only. I already have the 15 inch tires... so no need to suggest getting 16 inch rims or anything else... I just want to stick to this topic alone. Thanks a lot!

The trim rings look unique! I like them
Thanks. I just think I would prefer the look to be a little cheezed out for winter... I want to have fun with it instead of just leaving them rusty black! ;)

My grandmother had a Ford Tempo back in the day and I always like the 3 piece rims that car had...

I know they were basic and boring but its a whole different time period for cars. That Tempo ran like a champ!

If anyone has some suggestions I am all ears...

Crap.. I think I messed up. Seems these center caps fit 16's and not 15's. Sucks. I guess I have to send them back! DANG IT! I'll find out for sure once I get them in the mail tomorrow!

Alright.. So I got my Crown Vic Center Caps and it turns out that dimensionally they seem to fit but I need collared lug nuts like this so that the clips on the backside of the center cap have something to clip on to.

So I popped over to Rock Auto and did some cross referencing... The Crown Vic studs are 1/2 inch I believe and the Ford Focus stud is M12x1.5... so those will not work. On the other hand.. the 2008-2011 Ford Focus seems to have the same size lug stud as the 2012-14 and they have a collared lug nut available because their hubcaps apparently needed them to snap onto as well. So... I am thinking that these collared lug nuts for the 08-11 Focus SHOULD work on the 2012-14 Focus. Can anyone here help me verify this? Thanks.
