fifteen52 tarmac alloys

Recommended Posts

Hi all a couple of questions about width and offset if anybody could help me please.

As title fancy a change off wheels at some point and been looking at the fifteen52 tarmacs I am running a set of 17x7 with a offset of 38 team dynamic pro race 3 alloys at the minute with no problums what so ever but the tarmacs are 17x8 with a offset of 45 so would I have any problums with then catching on the wheels arches with any sort of wait in the car as they would be wider wheels.

I am still running standard suspension and brakes they would be going on to a 2009 ford focus zetec model.

Standard ST alloys have offset of ET52.5 so the Fifteen52s would stick out 7.5mm more than those and about 5mm more than your current TDs.

There are quite a few people running 10mm spacers on Focus STs so you should be fine with the Fifteen52s. You will probably need to install steering rack limiters if going to a wider wheel.
