Just about ALL Centerlines are polished.

I looked at those before, and was very impressed with one notable exception- I couldnt find them in a matte finish.

In a satin finish they'd be outstanding. I like the spoke style, very SVT-OEM looking. Even in chrome, that weight and rotary forging at that price is real cool. More pics when they're on the car will obviously be required.

oh, you can bet on it! i was able to ge tthem at this price because they're overstock wheels. you gotta love clearance parts [:D]

the reason i chose these was actually BECAUSE of the spoke design! it's simple, and it stands out.

Nice purchase. Little iffy on the high polish though. I would be nervous parking next to a curb and effing them up. Besides, in my neighborhood something that shiny says "come and steal me". Those are pretty light for 17's. You sound happy with your purchase and that's all that matters. Have you made a tires decision yet?

oh i already have tires. i have a set of motegi FF5's sitting in my garage. i didn't much like the way they looked, although they were better than the stock 15's which adorn my fender wells now. i'm getting ready to sell the motegi's here soon.

luckily in my neighborhood everyone jsut kinda leaves each other alone lol

I like them. I'm not much for chrome or chrome looking, but maybe because the chrome rims I'm used to seeing are too "bling bling" for me. These are simple and I think they will look great on a focus. Good buy!

I like them alot. The high polish finish will stand out and you cant beat a 5 spoke design for simplicity and class. Will look great on your ride, can't wait to see the pics.

Not really my bag...I don't like chrome anything, and I really don't like 5/6 spoke wheels with a lot of open rim between the spokes, makes them easier to bend when you hit a pothole. But if you like them that's all that really matters, right? [thumb]

Those are hot rims man. I can't wait to see them in person on your car.
Thats a really good price. You made a very good purchase.[thumb]
