Hey everyone... lately i have been looking at focal f5 rims. I was also informed they only come in our bolt pattern in 17's and 19's. Im afraid that 19's would be too big, but are 17's too small considering stock is 16?? Just lookin for opinions!
Is your car lowerd? If not then they may look a little small. If you were to go with the 19"ers then find some good low profile tires wich should prevent any problems. If your car is lowerd then the 17" should look good, 19" will likely be to large.
BTW...You don't have to "settle" for what's available in our bolt pattern...You can have any wheel you like custom drilled to our 4x108 pattern as long as the offset is correct (just talk to whomever you purchase the wheels from about the proper offset for the Cougar). Just make sure you install some lowering springs (if you haven't already) or either wheel/tire combo (17's or 19's) will look silly with the enormous wheel well gap...If you go with 17's, buy 225/45/17 tires, and for 19" wheels I recommend 225/35/19 tires.
