So the question I have is whether anyone has made this conversion to their focus and about how much something like this might cost if its even at all possible or practical? I also like the inherent performance heritage that a center locking wheel attains. I really like the aesthetic of a center locking wheel and think it would also make the changing of the wheel far more convenient. [wrenchin] But I don't know, thats just ignorance speaking.

i havn't ever seen one of those kits on a focus..however, with the right kind of money, all things are possible!

my friend has a set of rims similiar to those on his BMW...they look nice and i haven't heard of anything negative about them...he has had them for about a year.

just a warning though, expect to pay BIIIIIG bucks for center locking rims

wow, never heard of those, but they would DEFINITELY make your car slick and unique. it may be expensive, but individuality is hard to come by in the tuner world. id say go for it man. like levin said, anythins possible with enough money

where do you buy such wheels? or even the kit?

I HAVE seen this before on cars, but never inquired where to get them

thats very cool but i dno if its worth the money/effort just for the looks. i imagine it would be very handy for those 10 second pit stops though.

I asked my friend where he got the kit from and he said that he bought it off of ebay?!:?! i haven't ever seen this kit on ebay...he spent 1600 for rims, tires and the coversion kit.

personally, i don't think it's worth it...that's enough money to go turbo...
