No you'd need to change the hubs and discs (or rear drums) to Focus ones and more than likely the driveshafts too. Even then you'd run into clearance problems as its hard to fit them to a normal Focus

You can buy a 4 to 5 stud spacer with extra studs on it but they are 300 a pair

http://www.driftwork...rs-25-50mm.html so something like these. Just for Ford's and not Nissan's :P

Mk1 RS and Mk 2 ST wheels would fit fine as far as the diameter of the wheel is concerned, and the 18 inch RS wheels;

http://www.pumaspeed...e-Wheel_177.jsp

They sell those that fit fine with a 35 profile tyre (not a clue how easily available those are though, but are sold by Pumaspeed http://www.pumaspeed...18-TYRE_109.jsp)

Honstly though, it's going to be a pretty harsh ride, the wheels will be prone to damage due to practically no profile, wouldn't recommend it honestly.

Not a clue though how far they'd stick out of the car, which has then problems of it's own, seeing the wheels are probably a bit wider (not sure though), the offset may be different and so on.

Those are the ones, I'd rather go with a Nice looking 4 stud option than overcomplicating everything

Have you looked into aftermarket reps mate? See link below for RS style wheels in 4 stud fitment, in 17s though...maybe you're after 18s? Guessing the standard RS 19s couldn't be what you're after?!

ive recently wrote off my 1.25 zetec which was a zetec s reppy but now have a 1,4 titanium but im stuck with this car for a good few years now seeing as its the only thing i can insure :/ so im looking to put a bit of money into it so its not a problem but those 4 stud 17's on ebay would be perfect as i could keep everything the same with the hubs and i would just need some 30mm speacers as im looking into getting the wide arch kit fitted and having the car resprayed white with a tinit of baby blue like the white st's

got a lot planned just sorting the money out and getting it all done now

Jeez that's a tough one about the write-off. Sounds like you have it well planned anyway for the 1.4 so hopefully you get it up to the spec you're after and you've better luck with this one.

Don't seem to be showing up mate. Are you on a computer? Uploading pics is dead easy if you are...just select 'More Reply Options' below right of the 'Reply to this topic' box. This takes you to a more detailed reply screen at the bottom of which has the option to attach files.

Click 'Browse', navigate to the location of the photo file on your computer and select. Then click 'Attach This File'...job done! There's the option of inserting into post then if you like.

If photos are too large to upload directly, I just open them in Paint, resize to about 60% or whatever is required, save them down under a new name (same as old one followed by '_small' for handiness) then try again.

Your Facebook links don't work (your photos are probably set to friends only rather than public)

Right click on each photo and click "Copy link address"

When posting here click the photo icon (2nd row down, middle below font colour & smiley face) and paste the link in to there.

You see this is why I love the Fiesta, just look at it - it's still a car, despite having a lot of damage. A lot of these little cars now end up nothing more than a crushed can after an impact like that.

coming onto a slip road mate, leaves every where and in the rain so wasnt the best of weather and the back end slid out but i couldnt bring it back around as it was too far gone and ended up in a ditch with 2 trees stopping me from rolling, strange thing tho was i was in my mates car a few weeks before and the exact same thing happened but we were lucky enough to straighen up

Luckily enough i had no one in the car with me at the time and all i had was a burn on my left wrist from where the air back went off

I think if i was in any other car it would of been my !Removed! and dont think id be here now ! police officer at the crash said theres been a fair few deaths in the same spot over the years
