Cheers brother.You don't need to go bigger than 16 in wheels. They clear the brakes. It will save you some money.
The topic has been brought up a few times but it's all over the place. This link should help: http://fordstnation.com/focus-st-suspension-wheels/527-snow-tires.html

I've used summer tires in November in Michigan... Don't play this game.I'm wondering how bad the tires really will be in the snow. It'd be nice to have some downtime before I need to spend another grand or so.
Had to change your shorts did ya!I've used summer tires in November in Michigan... Don't play this game.
I didn't crash, but on multiple occasions I was completely unable to control the vehicle in conditions that even crummy all seasons were fine in. (the tires in question were BFG KDW 2's)
That's a good idea with the cold mid-west winters you have. Just take it slower if you get any significant snowfall.Glad this was brought up. Looks like I'd need at the very least a set of all-seasons. I'm in NW Indiana near Chicago.
I'm not as concerned with the grip issue as I am with the soft compound of the Goodyears turning to stone, which I guess go hand in hand.
Guess it's time to check out my options. Buying an extra set of wheels/tires wasn't in my original plan.
Well I've been looking and from what I gather you've got 3 choices in wheel size (though I can't verify the actually fitment since there isn't any info I can find on clearances and such)...And I don't know a damn thing about offset or the lug pattern on the ST to find a good set of wheels.
I'm actually a bit lost here. Lol.
