Can be several brands.

Ford usually buys large badges of tyres from different manufacturers. Well known suppliers are Bridgestone, Goodyear, Continental and Michelin. Ford did (and does) not use a single sipplier.

My previous Focus MK2 did have Bridgestone tyres factory fitted.
My original Ford 17 Inch MK2.5 wheelset did have Continental Sportcontact 2 tyres factory fitted.
My Focus MK3 did have (the optional) Goodyear all season tyres factory fitted

my 2007 fiesta had Uniroyal when new. I know it's not a Focus. But if the bought from Uniroyal for fiesta perhaps they did for focus also.

Like above, all 4 of my tyres were Uniroyal when I got mine. Whether this was due to the previous owner asking for them, or asking for "previous tyre replacements" I do not know, but what I do know, is that people who skimp on tyres will have different brand names on each tyre, these Unis were not cheap.... I put on Pirelli P7's on mine now. Both are around £75 per tyre depending where bought.

My old 06 Zetec came with 205 55 16 P7's as standard which I found strange - the couple that had it originally had a photo and write up of all the brands and parts so if anything went wrong they knew what to get to repair it with.

Michelin primacy 3 were on my 2010 focus when new.

Should be simple enough to restore a climate spec model to its original state;

Remove the air freshener, floor matts and everything loose as it didn't come with anything in it from factory except a tenner fuel in the tank

How uncanny! ...That's exactly what was fitted to my Ford Focus too, isn't that strange?
