2016 Ford Focus ST wheels.

Recommended Posts

Simple math. If the price to repair exceeds the value of the car it is "Totaled" . The front end of the car is not built to be strong but to absorb the impact. The cocoon we ride in is design to protect us.

You inspired me to dump my 18" Fusion wheels for ST wheels :-)

I put the older ST wheels on mine and lowered the back. I also took out the seats and made a bed.

My wheels are said to be from a 2012 Focus of some trim or other  -  I'm not really sure.  I bought them on eBay for $350

I sense there are changes afoot among us natives.  The question we must all be asking ourselves is why, groups of private home garage mechanics and engineers haven't designed a vehicle that is safe, modular and more easily repaired,  with a quality engine, and  transmission, that can be reasonably built from a kit, and designed to accommodate easily installed after market extras, from a company that does not owe it's soul to investors and can price the vehicles much more reasonably.  Reasonable people understand the underbelly of the auto manufacturing business and the risks involved, but have we become such lemmings that we do not try?  Decentralization is the way, with people across the globe working toward a solution.  The intent is not to replace the auto industry, but to supplement it for those who can see past their eyelids.  :victory:  If the internet can have public sphere software that people around the world work to improve, why is that not possible for a car or truck:happyfeet:  It is.  Co-op's can be established to build the parts in intelligently selected resource rich locations, making them more affordable and sustainable.    Shipping co-op's can be established to deliver the parts at more reasonable prices.  In the current economic environment where incomes are declining and prices are rising, what choice do we have but to innovate and rely on ourselves. :play:

Your wheels look great Beta Don, especially for the price.  Good things come to those who shop :thumbsup:

How much of difference in ride and did it affect the speedometer any?

The shorter the sidewall the rougher the ride  -  How much rougher is a subjective call.  If you choose the correct size tire (keeping the circumference the same as the stock tires) the speedometer will still be correct . . . . or as correct as it originally was anyway
