Do Not Sell My Personal Information


17-Inch Y-Design 8-Spoke Alloy Wheels


Recommended Posts

Not a fan of those myself but its all personal taste, most alloys look better recoloured though, so maybe that might be an option too?

(Most like gloss black, but and metallic colour that contrasts the bodywork seems cool to me)

To be fair I think those y design ones would look much better coloured, even gunmetal grey possibly. For myself the 'stalk' of the y is much too thick in my opinion, but maybe with a glossy or metallic colour it may not be as bland

I had them on my focus! I must admit that they don't look that great on their own, but on the car it looks really smart and fills the arches properly.

I think it suits the car really well and has stood the test of time well!

Hi Luke.

I know what you mean about the 18 inch ST wheels making it ride high but I've found a set of 16 inch ST design wheels on ebay that look cool - ebay item 271406133936 £339.99 Set....look cool. I'm trying not the wreck the ride too much so 16/17 inch is as big as I want to go.

The eBay wheels aren't genuine. There pre Facelift copies of an 18" ST wheel. Ford never made a 16" in that style.

How about the wheels that came on the Facelift focus Style 2008? There 15 / 16" ST looking and are genuine Ford wheels.

I'll post a piccy up of what I mean.

I had after market 18" ST wheels on a Zetec S Which looked good but rode terrible

Thanks mate, To the untrained eye you could easily get them confused, But looking at them together I can see the differences. I've not had my focus long but I'm learning lol....much appreciated.

I've had a few focus's from new so have a fairly good idea.

You just need to find a pair at the right price but definitely don't get the 18"s if you want a smooth ride.
