I have an 01 Focus SE with 205/50 16 tires on it now with no suspension mod's. I found some really cheap tires for 20 a piece . Those tires are 205/60 16's . I was told they would rub on the struts and maybe the fenders . Also would a tire change as far as size mess with the ECM setup ? Need some thoughts here . Thanks

Your speedo will be off a good bit and yes you stand a very good chance of rubbing especially under cornering. A 205/60 is a much taller tire than the 205/50

^^ Ditto

I put 55's on my car in the winter (also bought really cheap) and they rub significantly on large bumps such as railroad tracks but turning is not an issue with mine. Now, my car is lower than yours by default but the larger tire size would pretty much makeup for the difference.
