Hello guys. I'm new (obviously). I've thread through this thread, and heard you guys say that the Focus had the same bolt pattern numerous times, but do they run the same offset as out Contours?

I'm wondering because I am really interesting in buying a set of gold Focus Rally wheels from Ford Racing, but I would like to make sure that these wheels will fit properly before I spend ~$650 on wheels.

Here is a link, if needed:

The wheels have a 5.94" backspacing, is this the same as the SVT Contour?

Sorry about the 20 questions, but I would just like to make things crystal clear before dropping a lot of money on something like this.

If anyone has any experience with these wheels on the Contour, I would greatly appreciate it.
