Due to the recent sales success of the popular and newly redesigned Ford Focus, many customers have been calling in exploring their options for dedicated winter / snow tires.
This hot new hatch and sedan, dependent on trim level, came with 15"-17" wheel fitments and several different Original Equipment tire selections. Regardless of model and trim levels, the modern Ford Focus shares the same brakes and wheel hubs. This allows us to recommend and supply a large number of wheel fitments including steel wheels (car rims).
This season, Tire Rack's recommendation for a Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package mirrors my own personal choice: the low-cost option of a 15" steel wheel paired with the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70 tire is a hard to beat combination of performance and affordability. Of course, alloy wheels are available for those looking for a more aesthetically pleasing setup.
