  • Ford SVT RIMS For My 99 Merc Mystique

    Asking fellow GEG'er for help ..again....In Canada guy is selling 17 inch Focus SVT rims $400 Canadian...will these fit my 99 merc Mystique without modifications pls????
    Currently car has aftermarket 205 60R 15 tires and rim after local shop ruined factory wheels by failing to torque them down ruining bolt hole.
    BAT has similar set but they are $150 each American...prob $200 Canadian......thanks doug p
    17 in.
    Selling a set of 17" ford SVT edition wheels. Will fit ford focus and fiesta, along with other 4x108 cars.
    Will come with 4 tires ( Michelin Pilot sport ), but 2 need to be replaced, which is reflected in the price. These are getting hard to come by.
    No bends, cracks or issues.

    Yes the Focus wheels will fit without modification. Just make sure they have the correct size tires on them. Either 215/45R17 or 225/45R17 will be fine.

    - 95 Mystique LS <-sold
    - 99 Contour SE Sport <- traded in 2/13

      BR thank you so much for this...After Sens vs New York Ranger game was going to stay overnight in Ottawa...cost $300....instead I will probably buy the rims...then i will have 17 and 15 wheels for my SVTmystique...

          UPDATE..these rims came with 215 45ZR 17 tires...Are these tires ok???? or do i need to use 45 R tires???

          I know the ZR would be higher speed rated but when i go to buy new ones should i get 45R's instead please???

          Hey BrApple..I picked up the rims yesterday and couldn't be happier...not perfect but either is my 1999 Mystique. Really appreciate all the help you have given me since I joined CEG I would be lost without it...On my way home stopped and tried out a Ford Focus ST..sweet ride..seems pretty fast
          .The Focus RS rocketship was also at this dealership can't make up my mind whether its worth approx 20 grand for four wheel drive and 345 Horsepower...what a way to end up as a senior citizen in a Rally Car for the streets..

            Found this online...so i guess buying two new 215/45ZR 17 tires...is the cheapest way to go ???????
            A tire sized 195/45ZR15 78W is identical to a tire sized 195/45R15 78W in every single way. The Z is redundant.
