Firstly, just to say 'Hi' as a new forum member. I'm due to pick up my Focus Estate at the weekend to join the club properly!
In the meantime, I wonder if you would be so kind to assist with a couple of queries (hopefully I'm not dragging up old topics!)
The last time I drove a Ford in the snow it was a rather agricultural Mustang in New York and while the Focus is far more dynamically composed, I'm keen not to repeat the many butt clenching moments when I travel up to the west coast of Scotland later this month. I therefore ask your advice concerning winter wheels and tyres.
I've had them fitted for the last couple of years to my other car but wonder if anyone recommends a particular type/brand for the Focus considering its FWD?
Is there any benefit in price dropping from the 17" size and getting second hand alloys / steelies on the 16" fitment?
In terms of second hand alloys, what will be compatible? Are modern fords all of a similar fit - ie. Will focus mk1/mk2 alloys fit the stud pattern, spacing and offset?
Sorry for all the questions on the first post - hopefully once accustomed to the new car I'll be a net contributor to the forum!
