Ford Focus ST Wheel GuideLast Updated June 13, 2023 | C.J. Tragakis
Although the Focus ST looks great right from the factory, many enthusiasts choose to add their own custom style with a new set of aftermarket wheels. Whether you want to stay with the Ford snowflake design, upgrade to some RS-style rims, or go a completely new route with a different brand, there are tons of great options to fit any style.
This guide will help you find the best wheels for your Focus ST, no matter what you’re looking for. 18” wheels, like the ones that came stock, make an easy switch that won’t even require you to get new tires. Or, you can upgrade to a larger 19” rim diameter, which provides more of a performance edge and even more street presence. Black wheels are very popular for the Focus ST, but it’s hard to deny the style of gunmetal gray as well.
Don’t forget to check out the options for wheel spacers and tires, to ensure that you get the stance, grip, and handling that you want out of your Ford hot hatch.
Best Focus ST 18-Inch Wheels
The wheels that come with the Focus ST from the factory are 18-inch, and that makes this size a popular choice on the aftermarket as well. The hardest part for the average enthusiast is deciding on a color, as matte black, gunmetal, and bronze all look amazing on the Focus. You’ll find a wide variety of spoke designs as well, with each offering a different type of style.
Best Focus ST 19-Inch Wheels
These 19-inch wheel options are larger than the factory set for the Focus ST, and the same size as the ones that come with the Focus RS. This bigger size gives you more of a focus on performance, without sacrificing the everyday practicality and comfort of Ford’s hot hatchback. You can find a variety of different designs, ranging from aggressive and race-inspired to sleek and sporty.
Best Focus ST Black Wheels
Black wheels are one of the most popular choices on the aftermarket, and they look great with any color Focus ST. You can opt for factory-style "snowflake-style" wheels from Ford Performance, including a Focus RS-inspired 19-inch option. There are also options from HRE, Voxx, and Niche, each providing a different look. Whether you want matte black or gloss black wheels, you’ll find some great options right here.
Best Focus ST Wheel Spacers
If you’re selecting larger wheels or just want to change your Focus ST’s stance, you can look at adding some wheel spacers. They’re an affordable option that will make a big difference in overall style and handling. Wheel spacers are a popular choice for enthusiasts because they offer a more aggressive look and eliminate the factory gap between the wheel face and fender lip. You can also add a set of hub centric rings that will help eliminate wheel vibration that can come with aftermarket rims.
