Full Version: Fitting st170 alloys onto a 2003 focus lx

I have recently been given a set of these st170 alloys from a friend, who owns an st170, i have been told they fit my car, but looking at the wheels the bolt holes look massive, would i need to buy seperate bolts?
Also if i put the wheels on my car, im hoping the car wont look as if its on stilts, as i really dont wont to go through the hassle to lowering my car over a set of alloys
Has anyone else had experience with these?

If you were to use normal steel wheel nuts they would shred the alloy and the wheel would fall off alloy nuts sit better and look better ;)

The alloys fit perfectly, used the same wheel nuts on my focus, just thought i'd post incase anyone else was thinking of doing this
