Hope you guys can help someone who is ignorant about Focuses. !! :(

I want to upgrade the 15" alloys on my wife's 2004 Focus 1.8 Zetec as they are cosmetically not good. I suspect they will be about 50 per rim to get them refurbished - is that about right ?
So I thought I'd try to buy some in good condition from someone upgrading from 15's to 16's/17's.
What would I expect to pay for 4 such 15" rims ? Don't need tyres as they are new.
Do recent Fiesta/Focus rims fit 04 Focus hubs ?

Thanks for any help guys, but looking for a cheap way to keep er indoors happy !!

Fiesta ones will, focus ones 05 on wont as theyre 5 stud.


Try a scrappy, plenty of zetecs scrapped and you should be able to pick up the alloys from 35-55. I paid 45 ea for a couple for mine last year.

Hi Stans

make you use right sixe profile tyre 16" should be 50 or 55 series
17" should be 40 or 45 and 18" should be 40 series ro your speedo will be out
also the tyres may catch bodywork

Tyres are all good on existing rims so looking for replacement same dia/offset - or maybe 0.5" wider ;)

This is really nice & will run nicely in tight grip. This can control speed nicely. You must try this 15".
