I'm planning on going to the junkyard one day this week to look for a spare set of rims that I can use for autocross. I'd like them to be 16" or less and be wide enough for a nice set of autocross tires. Does anyone know off hand any cars that use the same bolt pattern as the Focus?

Offsets may be screwy, but other cars w/ the right bolt pattern include some Audi's, late 80's- 90'? Escorts, Mustangs w/ 4-lugs, and the Contour.
There are likely more, but that's what I can think of.
The offsets may make them unusable....???

Many auto-x'ers stick with 15" wheels for the variety of choices in 15" tires and the lightweight OEM 15" wheels. The stock 15" wheels are 6" wide and will fit up to a 225 in most cases. Although, you will have to get an experienced tire shop to mount them. For auto-x, I've run 225 Kumho V700's, 205 Hoosier auto-x'ers, and 205 Victoracers. All on the stock 15" wheels.

The lightest OEM wheel is the infamous 15 inch 16 spoke 'wagon' wheel: ebay link for example

Don't pay more than $50/wheel. I've bought and sold them for as little as $25/wheel.
