So I decided to pull the trigger on the gloss black Focus RS 19x8.5 rims for my ST. With a 5% coupon and 200 RPM miles at CJ Pony, got a set for $465 shipped.

My vehicle is stock suspension height and I don't plan to lower.

What tire widths are people running on these rims? 235/35 seems the most common but will 245/35 or 255/35 cause any interference problems?

Looking for suggestions on tire size and if anybody thinks spacers are necessary. I plan to use these with summer only tires next spring.

People put 235 on the 8.5? I have the stock snowflakes which are 8 and I have 255/35. With little to no bulge.

Thats why I'm interested to see what sizes other people have on this 19 inch rim.

Question for the OP, CJ shows two different wheel options in the gloss black. One wheel lists for $140 (approx) the other is $300 but they look identical wtf is the difference?

Looks like they are different wheels. The cheaper one is 8.5" wide while the more expensive wheel is 8" wide. .
Ford Racing Focus ST RS Wheel 19"x8.5" Gloss Black 2013-2016

Ford Performance Focus Focus RS Wheel 19"X8" Gloss Black 2012-2016

I believe the cheaper one is the Mk2 RS wheel and the more expensive is the Mk3 RS wheel.

They are different style and width. Look closer at the pics and you can see they are different.
