Hiya folks,

Next week I will be putting some Focus Zetec S sport pack 18" wheels on my car. I've changed wheels before but I'm aware that it isn't as simple as that.

Once I have put the wheels on, do I need to get the tracking done?

Have something to contribute?

No need to have the tracking done after changing wheels

Providing you fit the correct profile tyres it should hust be a case of swapping wheels

Don't go any bigger or smaller than 22540r18 and you speedo should be fine as that size will be the correct up size for all focus's as the st runs it.
