Wheels

I want to start a thread which contains pics of wheels available in Australia for a Focus. I am looking at buying wheels soon and would like to see what others have come across. I just ask that that the wheel be available in Australia, no use posting something you have seen on a US forum that is going to be hard/impossible to obtain.

I have been speaking to guys at CarShine. They sent me a few pics. The ones that caught my eye are below.

MAK - Fiorano
Apparently available only in 17", but this pic looks way bigger than 17s, look more like 19s. Similar to stock Zetec, but with an extra set of spokes, and bigger, maybe thats why they appeal to me

MAK - Hyper
http://www.fordforums.com/attachment...id=29184&stc=1

MAK - R Action
http://www.fordforums.com/attachment...id=29191&stc=1


AEZ - Icon 5 (only ones available in 18" from CarShine) I checked out the AEZ website, there is also an Icon 6 (6 spokes instead of 5), which I prefer, am checking if they are available.

Mille Miglia - F20

This will be an ongoing thread as I find more after more research. Please feel free to add to it.

Re: Wheels

if you've got the cash y not go for the OZ Superturismo, they the wrc focus rims and imo they are a bit nicer than the Mille Miglia - F20's. i've been to carshine recently and they quoted me $800 a rim because they have to specially order them cos of the focus 4-bolt pattern. focus would look very hot with a set of these on em

Re: Wheels

Funny thing is that when I asked them about getting in Oz Racing wheels they said they do not get them in, only the Oz Racing lock nuts. Go figure...

Re: Wheels

hmmm, thats strange i spoke to an older bloke there, i think he may have been the manager n he was pretty helpful but yea he said they can pretty much order whatever you want because of the business partners they have in germany. i only went 2 weeks ago so maybe things have changed, dunno :hrm:

Re: Wheels

I like the Hypers... the multispokes are a pain to clean. I prefer the Oz's to the Mille's, but be prepared to clean them... OFTEN! I've been thinking of getting rid of my ST rims for that very reason! They look great, but, boy, they can be very tiring!

Re: Wheels

Have seen a few similar looking styles around the place though.
