I have a friend who is a die hard Volvo fan and he clued me into this thread and the vast variety of Volvo wheels that are 5x108.

If you're looking for an OEM wheel, this thread can give you some ideas.

The issue is, most of the good wheels are for the RWD cars and, its totally wrong for the new Focus.

I have a friend who is a Volvo fan/wheel whore and, he was my first place to go to for wheels.

Many of those wheels will work fine on the Focus. Those with an aggressive offset can work for the stance crowd. ;)

I agree. My manager has a C30 and I totally want to take her wheels but she won't let me do that I am sure lol. But that's how I looked for aftermarket wheels. Looking for wheels became a lot easier once I added volvos. Thanks for the link Jason.

63.4mm, it's exact. took it up to (well above the national speed limit) today, no issues.

what i found interesting - the Focus hub doesn't taper:


also a bit of a tip if you're worried about bumping your (nice) wheels with a socket:
