Can't wait to see those installed... I had 18x7s on my Focus (except mine were silver and not matte black). Those will be SIGNIFICANTLY lighter than stock (like 5-6 pounds lighter per corner). I would have bought those in a heartbeat if they were 17x7.5s. I'll be getting a new set of wheels sometime soon... while I like the ones I have, I'm tired of black wheels. Believe it or not they are a PITA to keep clean. lol

Oh, and whatever you do, DO NOT over inflate your tires... I bent or broke 3 wheels on my Focus, granted they were 35 series profile but the Ultraleggeras are "bendy". Avoid potholes like the plague. ~grins~

Thanks for the tip :) Will definitely be careful with them. Yea they feel sooo light. Black rims on a black car is new for me. Never been a fan of that look but it has grown on me lately.

I concur these wheels are "bendy" ran them before, light as hell, looked great, nut not cheap enough to be "disposable". I bent 2 over a year normal driving around DC.

Thanks :) Yes stock suspension - 215/40/17 tires
Wow thats awesome. Aftermarket wheels never look good on stock springs haha but i guess like always the FiST is an exception.

I have some 17x7.5 215/40s that ill be putting on next week and cant quite afford coils yet, so i was dreading the time during which these wheels would be on with the stock suspension until now. Mine will stick out a bit farther than yours (.25 inch plus a 2mm lower offset) so that might accentuate the gap. Oh well i guess ill find out soon.
