  1. Upgrade to Focus RS?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Ok, I was looking at some Yokohama’s that have same kind of design and are quite a bit cheaper and good reviews. I’ve got to get wheels as well and so far tire rack seems to be the best deal

    Well thanks for heads up, I didn’t realize the were different. But the clamps/feet do have movement so it fit just fine in the correct spots. But I’ll be sure to keep and eye on things. Thanks again

    Oh I’ll have to look into it then. I used the same spacing from the ST and it all fit fine. I doubt that Yakima would have different feet for it. All I noticed is that it can be quite close to these rubber drain things maybe? But other than that it seems fine. I just might stick some clear wrap...

  5. Winter Tires

    Focus RS Discussions
    Ahh, I have seen a few used cars with the dark grey 18”s so thought they were standard and the 19” forged were the option. Alright I’ll look into those. Thanks
  6. Winter Tires

    Focus RS Discussions
    I know there are countless threads on winter tires but have some questions that I cant find answers to. Just bought a 2017 RS with the 18" wheels standard. What are the specs on these OEM wheels? I also am wondering what tire size for winter I should put on these 18" wheels. is there anything...

    I haven’t driven it hard just back the couple hours home so far. Definitely has power but can noticed the weight difference for sure. And the comments/reviews of the bad turning radius are actually true lol.

    Thanks guys, a little more per month than I wanted but I got what I think a good deal on everything and I like to pay my stuff off ASAP-so no new toys lol. Do need some snow tires yet so I’ll research for them. And I put my old roof rack on too. More picks to come Im sure!

    I used my ST last winter, was horrible. But I had pretty new Pirelli P-Zeros so its understandable why it was so bad lol.

    Focus RS Discussions
    Guys thanks so much. I’ll look into that skid plate thing. Destroyed my ST one last winter just in the drive way. Im going to take a look at one that pretty much has exactly what I want besides the 19” wheels (which I found some used for sale) Then I’ll use the 18”s for winter tires looking on...

    Either way its a really really nice car for me, so I am happy if I can get some kind of decent deal on one. Maybe down the road some upgrades will be done. Going to take a look at one on Saturday (11/16) probably will trade in the ST.

    Focus RS Discussions
    yeah i think thats the best choice. Now final question before id buy is, if i can it for about 32k out the door is it worth it....24k miles
  14. Upgrade to Focus RS?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Hey guys. So I have a dilemma. Same milege 2016 with buyback but all recalls done - $29000 (Buyback because of headlight wiring causing engine light?) 2017 no buyback, clean title, recalls done - $32000 So basically is it worth $3k for a year newer, and a clean title. I am planning on keeping...

    I think I will just need to find the one I want. I thought I did but found a write up on here from a guy who owned it in CA and it’s not good. So gonna pass. I’ll find one, I think I want a 2017, blue, with the black 19” wheels. I want this to be perfect as it’s what I’m going to keep for a while.

    If I do decide to get one, is it better in any real reason to get a 2017 over a 2016?
  17. Upgrade to Focus RS?

    Focus RS Discussions
    I just want the best of the best. I want to have the quickest care-that I can afford. I want awd for winter yes, but I also want it for the acceleration and other benefits the rs seems to have. I don’t track very much, usually twice a year. But I like driving quicker on the roads. the ST is a...

    I found one a few hours from me low miles and a great price, exactly the spec I want. We’ll see
  19. Upgrade to Focus RS?

    Focus RS Discussions
    I think I’d end up going with the rs. Just can’t decide if it’s worth the upgrade.

    Focus RS Discussions
    Thats pretty cool, I actually know about those and to bad we dont have them here, a lot of stuff in europe I wish we could get lol. I know the Golf would be better but even the sales guy at the dealer said its not a huge difference from the GTI So trying to see if thats the same case with the...
