The Ford Focus SE is one of those cars that owners love to customize. Fitment guides note that Ford Focus SE rims have diameters ranging from 16 to 20 inches, but you’ll need to consult your owner’s manual to find the range for your Focus’ particular year. If you want to use stock rims, RepairPal estimates you’ll pay around $650 to replace your rims and tires.
In terms of rim styles/brands for a Focus SE, you’ll have a lot to choose from, depending upon your taste and budget. Today, in addition to brick-and-mortar stores, online retailers offer huge selections.
The following tips are ones you should keep in mind when buying and installing rims and tires:
- Make sure the rims you purchase actually fit your vehicle. For instance, if your friend has a great set of rims on her Focus, don’t assume they will also yours if it is a different trim level and year. Always check manufacturer recommendations for rim sizes. A lot of online retailers offer customer service agents who will walk you through the process.
- Don’t buy cheap tires to save money. Even if you’ve broken your budget to buy upgraded rims, don’t try to make it up with a set of inexpensive tires. Cheap tires not only wear out more quickly, but really poor quality ones can cause you to spin out/lose traction in bad weather.
- Make sure the new tires fit the new rims. If you are uncertain about how to figure out which tires will fit, consult with a tire specialist.
