    Good day!

    I don't have any background about changing the mags or tires so if you don't mind, I'll ask you guys first.

    Anyway, mga sir gusto ko lang malaman kung okay ba sa 2010 Ford Focus ko ang 16" or 17" na rims. Naguguluhan kasi ako. May nagsabi na di naman daw sobrang tagtag ang 17" sa focus. Yung iba naman na nababasa ko eh badtrip daw talaga.

    Eto pa po mga tanong ko kung ayos lang :D

    1. Ano specs ng mags ang pwede sa focus?

    2. Any recommended brand? (Alam ko lang eh yung mga usual pero parang trip ko Rota)

    3. Estimated budget?

    That's all mga sir! Thank's for helping a noob like me who want's to add up some pogi points in my car.

    Madalas kasi mahal ang goma ng 17". 16" na goma medyo mahal na rin actually, usually starting around PhP4400/tire for the more established brands.

    Rota and Advanti are good wheel options I think. I can personally attest to Rota's quality, although most of their lineup consists of copies of Japanese tuner wheels. Advanti wheels meanwhile have been used by Red Bull's Scuderia Toro Rosso Formula 1 team and they have quite a number of unique wheel designs.

    Pwede rin Lenso at Concept One kung gusto mo.

    16" wheels are about PhP21,000 for a set of four. 17" wheels would be around PhP25,000. Don't forget tire price

    Diba almost all Concept One rims eh mabigat, so meaning FC will suffer ?


    Fact or Myth, anyone ?

    *TS : You can visit TyreRack at Ortigas Avenue to scout for rims. Dubshop too, you can visit though, I wouldn't really recommend since I think it Dubshop rims wouldn't look nice on a Ford Focus.

    Yun ang isa pang problema. Parang konti lang ang mags na babagay sa focus. gusto ko kasi sporty pero hindi matagtag. tamang boy-next-door look lang
    anyway, mga magkano dunlop tires? ayoko low profile yung ordinary lang. baka may ma share pa kayo mga repa :D

    you will have to put lower profile tires if you'll put larger diameter rims. that's the sense of it, putting bigger and wider rims is sacrificing comfort.

    if i were in your shoes, ill be going with rota P-45R 18x9.5 in 225/40 or 225/35 tires. yan ang definition ng matagtag! anything lower than 50 series tires ay matagtag. pero depende pa din.

    ^^ I agree mas bagay ang 18 dyan, pero yung 18x7.5 or 18x8 lang siguro kukunin ko. In my experience, hindi naman masyadong matagtag ang 225/40/18 basta naka 30psi ka lang. Tignan mo yung site ng Conceptonewheels.com may mga picture Ng focus dun sa gallery na naka 18 swak na swak lang. Magpapalit ka na rin lang, the bigger the better, kung aesthetics din lang ang paguusapan, IMHO.

    the bigger the better? it depends. you still have to maintain atleast the closest diameter of the stock shoes.

    Yes sir, you're absolutely right, going with bigger rims while maintaining the original tire diameter by using lower profile tires is what I meant by "the bigger the better", aesthetically speaking. Para sakin kasi parang mas maganda tignan pag busog na busog ng rims yung wheel well, but that's just my personal taste.
