I think I am interested in looking for a new or used set of bronze or gold colored wheels for my 2017 Focus ST. I looked at the TireRack website, which tries to show what various products they offer will look like on a stock ST, but it looks cartoonish, and I was wondering if anyone had actual pictures. I looked on the forums, and online, and did not find what I was looking for.

Rota Grid's in gold look like what I'm imagining might look good, but I don't know. I do not plan on lowering the car (since I use it for daily commuting) and maybe aftermarket wheels require lowering to look good. Looking for opinions.

I cant speak for the focus but i can speak for the color combo. I recently ran a set of bronze TSW wheels on my mustang and really liked how that color looked on a black car.

I powder-coated mine back in ‘18 & they still look new. It’s subjective but I prefer black wheels.

I think the 1st thing you need to consider is the color of your vehicle. I personally recommend going with gold for lighter color car or bronze for darker color car. I have a '17 Kona Blue ST and I plan on getting Vordoven Forme 9 wheels in bronze. I'm kinda waiting until I need new tires.

LOVE THAT!!! However- I do NOT like black wheels on a black car, because it all gets lost (at least to my eye). Looks fantastic on a silver car, though.

Unfortunately- as nice as those Vordoven wheels look- I do not think that they will stay inside the fenders of a Focus ST... The stock wheels are 8" wide, and the 5 X 108's are 9.5" wide...

haha yea prob not the way I understand is they will poke out a little bit, but that's actually what I'm looking for getting them 18 x 9.5 et +35. I am still not too sure on the tire specs.
