I'm planning on putting 18" alloys on my 06 focus zetec. Am I right in thinking that they'll be a straight swap for the stock ones as long as they're not too wide? :huh:

to fit 18" alloys to focus 05, You will need steering rack limiters to stop the wheels from contacting the body. this is the part number (1 342 639) price is about 10...hope this helps you..

Have ST 18" Alloys + Tyres for sale 2007 facelift focus

Hi, have read your post and wondered if you have sourced a good set of st alloys, as I have an immaculate set for sale which I bought for my 08 Focus Titanium (car now sold).

Wheels fit straight on, did not need rack limiter.

Advert on Pistonheads http://www.pistonhea...les/1080920.htm

Free with wheels/tyres are set of ST springs, will fit & lower you about 1.5mm.

770 for an immaculate set of wheels/tyres and springs + wheel nuts.

Have just reduced asking price to 690 if you are interested. Balanced and ready to go!

Be aware that some alloys in package deals from wheel shops are made from inferior alloy and bend easily, even though they may look the part.

Genuine Ford wheels are proper. Hope you find what you are looking for. Regards CV
