Alloy Wheels for a Ford Focus

If you're looking for a way to enhance your Focus’ performance whilst making it stand out from the crowd, a new set of alloy wheels might be just what you’re looking for. Not only can a set of alloy wheels reduce your fuel consumption thanks to their reduction of a car’s unstrung weight, they also allow for more precise steering in tough corners. Alloy wheels also reduce the risk of a braking failure, as their excellent ability to conduct heat improves heat dissipation in the brakes; vital in demanding driving conditions where your car has to be at its peak performance.

Choosing the wheels for you

Once you've decided on the wheels you like the look of, you must ensure that the alloy wheel rim size is compatible with your tyre size. A good quality set of alloy wheels for a Ford Focus start from around £60, however, it is highly recommended that you get them professionally installed to ensure that they are fitted correctly and this will obviously incur additional charges.

Maintaining your wheels

After you’ve had your new wheels fitted it is a good idea to check them after your first 20 miles of driving to ensure they are functioning as intended, as it may take a short while for the new wheels to adapt to your car. Many people opt to use specialised wax to give their alloys more shine, and it is certainly a good idea to thoroughly clean your wheels regularly to maintain optimal functionality.
