rubbing? is ur suspension stock.

only thing i can say is to make sure the offset of your new wheel is 42-49mm. i'd also recommend a 215/40/17 tire. little smaller diameter, but more width for contact patch.

The Focus comes stock with a little "friendly interference" with the fender liner at full lock when equipped with the factor 16" wheel/tire combo.

Most people don't notice it though... Is yours worse than usual? Where is the rubbing at?

Most likely... but a little fender liner interference at full lock is not a problem.... straight line rubbing or fender rubbing would be a much bigger problem.
