    Default ford focus ST wheels

    Sorry for what may be a stupid question, but I ended up with four wheels from a 2005 Ford Focus ST. They are 16" and currently have a decent set of 205/50-16 tires. The bolt pattern seems to match the front and rear axles on my lotus 7 clone. The car is now set up with 185/70-13 inch tires on American Racing Libre wheels. the tires on the new set up would be an inch wider and an inch more in diameter. TIA for any advice.

    For a start you will need to replace the wing stays to accommodate the larger dia rims check the Caterham Parts page for the correct stays
    The width may mean they will stick out passed the front wings which is OK just doesn't look that great and go through any water and be prepared to get wet

    thank you Brightonuk. I prefer the look of the 13inch rim, but there are not many tire choices (in the US) for that size rim. I might have to invest a half day and dry fit them on the car to see how the clearances are.
