[?]EHHHH? I don't mind the wheels all that much. But then, I'm OLD! So WTF do I know? [dunno]

My only problem with them is that they look like they're 15-inchers. IMO, the 15s look OK on the ZXW and ZX4, but too small for the ZX3 and ZX5; it's a matter of proportion - and personal taste, I guess. I would save my pennies for a 16" setup, sort of like what comes with the SES and the ST. Don't go ape and get 17s, though. On a Focus, I think they look ridiculous and ride like stones besides. What's more, the meats for 16" rims have come down in price, but 17s are quite a bit more.

Also, I would paint the grille. Or better, order an OEM grille. FordParts.com (https://fordparts.com/oe_parts_catalog.html) sells them, already painted silver, for about 60 bucks plus shipping. Some people might steer you toward aluminum billet. I've seen a few billet grilles that look good, but in my opinion most just look like ASS! And they bloody well aren't cheap for all that ugly, either. Save your money!

As a last touch, I would lose those license plate frames. Get plain black ones with as thin a surround as possible and paint them silver. Or do without frames altogether.

SO sorry you live in Cleveland![:D]

Yeah, get rid of the chrome grill, get the color matched one from the ST like I did, BIG improvement. Tint the windows .. and you'll be good until its time to get some new wheels.



Nice car by the way, copy cat, lol.
