Anyone have 15" Merkur wheels on their ride? Did find one thread on here but wondering if anyone else has tried and if so has pics.

Merkur wheels have an offset in the mid 30's as I recall...about 15-20mm off from an OE Focus. They may have some rubbage issues because of that. The Focus is happy with offsets in the mid 40s, maybe down to 40--after that may be an issue.

(I ran OE Volvo/Borbet 15x6.5, ET43--no problem)

Haha Wow, I thought I was the only one who wanted to put Merkur wheels on my focus. My dad's got a Merkur xr-4ti sitting in his yard waiting to be rebuilt, and I have been eyeing them everytime I go to their place. They are 18's though so I am pretty sure they would be too tall, I was also concerned about them rubbing just because of the style.
They would have fit my old VW Rabbit though. hehe =]
