    Threw some volvo wheels on my buddy's focus.

    Tires aren't the right height so it actually raised it a bit but it'll have new tires soon in the right size. Fitment of the wheels themselves are perfect

    Volvo wheels are actually a common swap for the mk3.

    Looks great!

    The codename for that focus is MK3?


    Just when you thought they're weren't enough MK3's in the world.

    Looks decent though. I like it.

    Yeah I know, not like there isnt enough mks'...
    Those are the only code names I've seen so far.

    mk1 2000-07
    mk2 2008-2011 (Mine)
    mk3 2012-present

    It especially fun once you include euro because their focus are very different. The mk2s are especially different. In NA the mk2s were kinda dud, the euro version is very popular. So its hard finding parts for my car on the internet.

    Then you get into mk1.5 haha

    Then you get into engines... haha. Zetec, then duratec over lap with mk1 and mk2, then duratec ti-vct.

    There are so many little changes in the focus between year and location...
    Basically mk1 and mk2(NA) are very similar and different in a lot of ways. The mk3 is almost completely different.


    Ford didn't plan out the focus very well, I don't think they were expecting it to catch on worldwide.
