Hey guys,

I read in a few places that 4 lug mustang rims mount right up on a focus, but wondering bout if they work with a focus, with rubbing and sticking out of the fenders and what not?

I read that focus guys use the wider mustang rims for autocross and what not and I've got endless access to stang rims and would love to throw a set on as long as major mods aren't required

thanks

Jim

DO NOT PUT RWD WHEELS ON A FWD !!!!! Same bolt circle or not the offset is so far off that they 1. will stick out of your fenders so far it will look stupid /most likely possibly rub when you turn 2. wear out your wheel bearings at an alarmingly fast rate.

RWD wheels have close to a 0 offset (backing plate is in the center of the wheel) or a NEG offset which moves the offset farther into the wheel giving the Deep Dish look.

FWD wheels have a POS offset which pushes the backplate to the front of the wheel.

Research this alot more before you do this please !!!

I know there's a guy that runs old mustang wheels on his focus for autocross. I've got a video of him tearing it up.
