Right so i was going to wait to fit my wheels on after all my kit was done but i could not wait!! so here you go lenny!
Posted Image
looks a bit jacked up now i may have to get some springs!

WoW they look sweet mate,
What is the tyre size, for example 225/55/R16 also could you put a 16" wheel next to the 18" and take a picture
Im looking to get quotes for tyres and i dont know the size, will look excellent when lowerd on those rims mate,

VERY nice! Personal choice, but I would leave as. Doesn't look so bad from that photo. Body kit night also make it appear lower.

Does the zetec s come with different springs?

The ZetecS comes from the same production line as the Zetec,
They then attach the body extensions which lower the rear more level with the front and interior extras such as chrome pedals and handbrake sleeve.
The springs on the Zetec are sports type and the zetec does sit lower than any other model in the focus range.
My focus style sits noticably higher than the zetec model.
I know this because my boss drives a 2008 Mk2.5 Zetec and i was parked next to him in work.
His car seems half an inch lower than mine as standard. And i know for a fact his only modification is petrol in the tank.
But soon mine will be lower than his when i fit the 18's and eibach's

225/40/R18 is the tyre size mate! These wheels came with tyres!
My focus is a zetec and it has settled down a bit now.
I will take a photo with the wheels next to each other but it will not be till the weekend because I'm working away. :-(

I have never done nights but I work a lot of hours and work away some times!
I'm hoping my stuff will be painted this week and on by the weekend!

216.46 per rim with 10% discount and including delivery,
Centre caps, valves and tyres purchased seperatly, but my local tyre fitter has quoted me 90-110 per tyre depending on what brand i want to fit so sounds good. All going well they should be fitted and car lowerd between May and June.
I work 3 different shifts
7-3 days
3-11 evenings
11-7 nights
The week flys by on nights but if you dont get sleeping before hand, its a nightmare going in at 11 knowing you gotta stay awake until atleast 8am but theirs 12 of us in it lol plenty of redbull.
I know the feeling waiting for parts to be painted,
Then when they breach deadlines, you dont wana rush them encase they mess it up on you.
But at the same time your eager to see the finished results.
Also i thought your wheels were Genuine, they look much the same:

You got a good deal on the wheels mate,
I dont drink or smoke or play xbox the focus is my only outlet and ive kept every single possible upgrade part a ford one, so ive gotta keep it through to the end, i couldnt tell the difference though.

Nice one fella! Fitted my heater controls about a month ago. Jury is still out on them. They look good, but in the day with no lights, hard to tell where the blower is or how fast and how hot!

I think red would be good mate,
But silver with a red brembo decal would also look good or a red S
