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 lowerROTA 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.
