Hello,
I'm new to the site and new to the Focus world.
I just got a white 4-door 08 SE 5-speed. Decent little car, but I need to do something to improve the looks. I really like the Drifz 517 (5 spoke) wheels. But I'm not sure what would be the best looking finish for a white sedan [???:)]

The 517 in silver or in bronze?

What about a black wheel with polished lip?

Let me know what you folks think!

Thanks
Marc

I've always thought white on white was tacky... But thats just my personal opinion. I think black with a polished lip would look great!

I'm defiantely leaning towards the bronze, but the black with a polished lip would look good too.

Are there good suggestions for a black with polished lip that's affordable?
(similar to the drifz bronze)

Thanks
Marc

The beauty of a white car is that just about any color (within reason) wheel looks good. The only color that can make it really look bad is the wrong shade of white (eg. a cool white on a warm white or the opposite. A white wheel would have to be the identical white of the car and that's often difficult to find.

You know what else has black wheels with silver lips?



Black w/ silver lips FTL..... Plus you just see em everywhere. Go with a bronze wheel. Thats hot.

I agree, I was originally thinking chrome....now that I've looked at other options I'm leaning away from chrome.

Thanks for all the input!!

i love it, it was a pain in the a#% to install but now that its in i couldn't be happier, the throttle response was noticably improved and well as low to midrange power, i would definetly recommend it.
