You should post pictures of what you are talking about, out of curiosity I briefly looked at their site an they don't list a 522.
The site seems very import orientated.

I don't see offset listed on my phone but they are the correct lug pattern anyways.

I'd have a friend do a photoshop of the wheels onto your car, There is a good chance at 8 inches wide and that design it's going to look like you slapped a set of wheels physically meant for an import on your mustang.

That's another thing I was wondering, how small is that 8 inch width gonna be??
What do you mean exactly? Most people run an 8-9" wheel in the front. I've ran an 8, a 9, and my xxr's I have currently are 8.5".

I think what he's referring to is the backspacing. Most import sized wheels will look silly on a Fox. They stick out too far. Our cars prefer a relatively deep backspace (the wheel extends further toward the center of the car in reference to the hub).

It's not to say that these will but you need to find out before pulling the trigger.

Oh I see. For an 8" wheel, I'd say you'd want around a +12 to +15 offset. For reference, this is my car with an 8.5" wheel in front with a +25 offset.

Those do look pretty good,
But those are also 5 lug, there are plenty of 5 lug wheels that fit a fox correctly, not so much for 4 lug.
He'd be slapping a set of wheels meant for another car (likely an import) on his fox. No telling how that could go and I don't think the OP's wheel choice is worth the risk.

Which is why we suggest he figure out the offset of the wheels he's looking at, just giving him an idea of what offset would be "correct" for the wheels to fit properly. :thumbsup:

Ohhh I see what you mean, well they don't show it on the site, however found a guy with a focus who put them on from the site. According to him it's a 43mm offset, so basically, how bad will that look?? I've seen a fox that had similar to these and yes they did stick out some, but I liked it. Just curious if anyone has an example of one with wheels with that offset or close maybe?
Got some new wheels.First set of these on a focus.XXR 522 - Page 5 - Ford Focus Forum, Ford Focus ST Forum, Ford Focus RS Forum

I've seen a few that were 17x9 with a 45mm offset and i thought it looked perfect, flush with the body and everything and a 17x8 with 30mm that I personally think should have come out a little wider. That's just how I like it. I'm sure the fenders would need a little work to fit, but that's fine with me. Thoughts? Concerns?

If the 8" wheel has a +45 offset, it will have a sunk-in look, similar to how the stock wheels fit.

Huh, I guess that's where I'm Confused, wouldn't that mean it sticks out away from the hub more? :scratch: thanks for bearing with me and explaining all this, obviously this kinda stuff isn't my strength. And so regardless, it'll fit, right?

The higher the offset number, the further out the hub is from the center of the wheel, bringing the wheel in. But yes, there shouldn't be any fitment issues. If there were, you could use spacers anyways.
