can't get rims because of lug nut patterns!
#1186057 - 03/07/06 10:23 PM

so yeah, im out shopping for new rims, i had my eyes set on some, but they couldn't find a lugnut pattern for them! So i tried a different place and asked them to look up rims for my lugnut pattern, they tried to get me to buy some gunmental ones with a darker gray color in the middle. But i really didn't like them, they we're from (ICW racing Kobe Style) but yeah.

does anyone have Eagle Rims on thier car? they have some with our bolt pattern and style 188 is starting to grow on me.

What is the point in aftermarket (other than race wheels) 14" or 15" wheels?

Go with 17"s or bigger. And there are PLENTY out there. Just look for wheels that fit focuseses.

Stick with 17's. the ride is the best compromise between ultra soft and jar-your-head-off-your-body hard.

18's are just too big, from a performance perspective.


I think a nice set of 225/45/17's or close are the perfect tire, and rim size for handling in this car. (IMHO)

i think i was pretty lucky finding the wheels i have. you dont seem to be picky like i was. my whole thing was that i wanted a black inside with about 1" 1/2 lip and 18-19" i ended up finding them new for 800 bucks in nyc but anyway look at
wheelmax.com
ebay.com
wheeldiscount.com

i would stay away from stores most of them are to lazy to try to find you some wheels that would you like or that would fit a contour,focus

Speaking of 18" black w/ polished lip, I really love these:

Oddly enough, I rather like the pinstripe and logo on the lip. Granted, I'd prefer it were JUST the pinstripe, but I still like it. What I really like about them is the deeper offset from the rim to the spokes. I'm not real big on the wheels w/ flush rim and spokes.

I have a silver frost SE, and I'm planning on painting it black from the beltline up and covering the split w/ a burnt orange pinstrip. So I'll have black on top, silver below, w/ black wheels with a polished lip. I think it will look really hot. Kind of like this, only in reverse:
