ROTA WHEEL GRID 18X8.5 5X108 +42 73 CB. ( 4 ROTA WHEEL GRID 18X8.5 5X108 42 73 SPEED BRONZE FORD FIESTA FOCUS LAST SET | eBay )

If you look closely at my pics and on the site there is a difference on the finish on the barrel of the wheel vs the spokes. The barrel is glossy and the spokes are a matte finish that doesn't clean easily. I didn't notice before I purchased the wheels, it's annoying but not a deal breaker since eBay was the only place I found that color/style/bolt pattern combination. You'll also need hub centric rings. I originally purchased plastic ones from CJ Pony Parts ( Gorilla Hub Centric Ring Set 72.62MM-63.36MM Focus ST 2013-2018 ) but I melted them onto my rotors after a track day. I've since purchased metal rings but haven't installed them yet. ( 72-6336M Hub Ring | 72.6mm OD [4 Pack] 63.36mm ID [Metal] ).

Also if you're running RS front brakes like I am these wheels clear the RS calipers without a need for spacers.

I appreciate the info you happy with the 8.5? I was thinking of going 9.5 but idk how much more effort that would require when I eventually want to go lower

Prefer the wider 9.5, but worried additional offset with wider tire and factory suspension would rub during track duty. Not interested in destroying liners or rolling/pulling fenders. Pic for example of clearance with current setup at speed.
