They will be pushed W A Y to the outside--thus indreasing track. I would not go past ET42, and 45 would be better.

I’ll have to double check with the manufacture to make sure that is the right offset. I’m looking at a 16” set of F1 Cup rims on e-bay but I want to be sure there the right ones.

yea alot of the imports can handle the offsets in the mid-high 30's, but Ford saw fit to make it difficult for us in allowing us a very small margin of offsets that will fit.

In germany alot of my buddies are running anywhere form 25-37mm offset. This offset most of the times will give you a deep dish rim, since most of them will come as 16x8,9,10 or 17x 8,9,10. I was looing on getting some rims shipped from home to here, since this wheel style is hard to find for the focus over here, but when it came down to it, it would have been too much money getting them over here. Yes you can run this offset, but depending how low you are you might need to get your fenders rolled.

Just to clarify:

17x8 rim/with 38mm offset (215/40/17):

^^those were actually the rims I was plannign on getting send over here.

17x9 front (215/40/17)/17x10 rear (245/35/17) 26mm offset:


I guess withthe pictures above I just wanted to show that you can even fit a 26mm offset on the focus without major modifications. Cheers...Ollie
