The Ford Focus ST is a turbocharged machine on the inside, and it certainly looks the part on the outside. With its redesigned front bumper, combined with the enlarged air intakes, grille, and rear wings, the Focus ST has an aggressive stance that will stand out among the crowd. While it not entirely possible to give the car’s body a true appearance-altering facelift, you can certainly enhance certain exterior Focus ST parts. Customized Focus ST Wheels & Tires allow Ford drivers to add their own personal touch to their hot hatches.

It is no secret that the high-powered motor is one of the main reasons why people purchase Focus STs. With its turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine, Ford drivers can experience 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, while zooming down either open roadways or the track. The term “burning rubber” gets thrown around quite a bit when discussing Ford STs, and none of that would be possible without properly-equipped Ford Focus ST wheels & tires. The Focus ST wheels & tires allow you to unlock all of that horsepower and torque from your engine while maintaining the traction with the surface that is required to keep your car in motion.
With all of the ‘rubber-burning’ going on while you are pushing your car to the limit, your Focus ST tires are constantly exposed to road debris or other hazardous material in its way. Even if your Focus ST tires somehow avoid harmful objects in the street, chances are that you will encounter roadways that are not evenly paved from time to time. Though they may not appear to be threatening on the surface, all of those cracks and dents in the road will leave lasting marks on your Focus ST tires, and eventually, they will need to be replaced.
Though your Focus ST wheels are protected by the tires, your rims are also at risk from road debris. If you ever encounter unfavorable road conditions, your Focus ST rims could be damaged and could literally become bent out of shape. Bent Focus ST rims can cause increased vibration at higher speeds, which can be detrimental to your suspension system. If your Focus ST wheels are bent or damaged in any way, it would be wise to replace them as soon as possible.
