OEM 16\" offset

Well, I searched (and should search again/learn how to better use the search), but I'm lazy.

What is the offset of the OEM 16x6 Focus wheels?

For some reason 49mm comes to mind, but that can't be right....

I've actually been wondering as well.

My 16s out the garage have ET52.5 cast into the back of the spokes...

..so 52.5mm it is!

Edit: ...and while I was out there, both the 15" wagon and 15" 10-spokes are 52.5mm as well.

5.5" backspacing, which is actually the measurement I was looking for.....
The Ford Racing 17x7's that I won at Jetfest appear to be 5 7/8ths" backspace, w/ a 47mm offset.
I wonder what troubles I may be in for if I wrap them w/ 215/40/17's in the new Azenis 615's?
I may need some front spacers to keep the tires off the struts.
I've never messed with that.
What do I need to know?
Thanks In Advance.

Re: OEM 16\" offset

FYI, our data shows the offset for the O.E. 16 inch wheels to be 50mm's.
That seems to contradict the 52.5 posted above, taken from the actual factory casting...

I believe the 52.5mm is indeed accurate--it is cast right on the wheel. I was guessing at 51 up above, but I knew I rememberd that it was a smidge over 50.

So Carl, you having some 47's made up then to take advantage of SCCA's gracious .25" latitude in offset?

I'm not at liberty to disclose that information right now. All I can say is the wheels will be custom, and will have billet cente....opps, I've already said too much
