Ford Focus Factory OEM Steel Rims
The term “factory OEM” steel rims means that your Ford Focus came from the factory equipped with a set of steel wheels. They are original equipment to your vehicle and designed for your Ford Focus. Factory steel wheels cost far less to manufacture than aluminum wheels, which makes them the accessory of choice for many auto manufacturers.
Ford Focus Steel Rim Accessories
Not only do we carry replacement factory OEM steel rims, but you will also find steel rim accessories like hubcaps, wheel covers and chrome wheel skins to add eye-appeal to your Ford Focus steel rims. To dress up steel rims, wheel covers and hubcaps are utilized to cover the face of the steel rim, making the rims more appealing, and giving them the look of aluminum rims. Other products that we carry, like chrome wheel skins, also dress up your Ford steel rims for much less than purchasing a new set of aluminum rims. Wheel skins press easily on to the face of the rim and give your Ford steel rims an entirely new appearance.
Ford Focus Used Factory Steel Rims
Used factory OEM steel rims make a great alternative to purchasing a new factory OEM steel rim or even a factory remanufactured steel rim for your Ford Focus. Used steel rims have been spun to ensure they are straight and true. If straight, they are put on the shelf to be sold “as is”. They are a good rim but may have some minor cosmetic damage such as scuffs or scratches. They are far less expensive than a new Ford Focus rim and will even save you over remanufactured rims.
Ford Focus Replica Steel Rims
Having a difficult time finding a replacement factory steel rim for your Ford Focus? Consider purchasing a replica steel rim instead. Replica steel rims are wheels that have been manufactured for us because the factory wheels are difficult to find for remanufacturing. Ford replica steel rims are similar to Ford factory steel rims in every respect, except they will not have the original equipment stampings on the back of the rim.
Durable, Tough Ford Focus Steel Rims
Steel rims for your Ford Focus have many benefits. They are a heavier, more durable rim, which makes them excellent to drive on in areas that receive a lot of snow. They will add weight which will help your Ford Focus drive through heavy snow and slush. Utilizing a full-size steel rim as a spare replaces the unsafe donut spare your Ford Focus may already carry. Driving on a full-sized spare is much safer as you can drive your Ford Focus at road speed, and it will be the same size as the other three wheels. The donut spare is not the same size and cannot be driven on at the normal road speeds on highways.
When to Use Steel Rims for your Ford Focus
Off-roading has become a very popular sport over the last several years. Steel rims are a great accessory for these types of vehicles, as well as heavier work trucks. They are more durable than aluminum rims for off road vehicles or work trucks and can handle the abuse better than alloy rims. In winter time, aluminum rims are very prone to the effects of road salts, and they are not very heavy. Ford Focus steel rims are much heavier and can plow through snow much easier. Plus you don’t have to worry about road salts eating away at the finish like you do with Ford aluminum rims.
Steel Rims vs. Aluminum Alloy Rims
There are many differences between steel rim and aluminum alloy rims. Aluminum alloy rims for your Ford Focus, for instance, come in a wide variety of styles and finishes. Ford Focus steel rims are more limited in their appearances and usually come black, although there are some in the industry that are chrome or silver. Ford aluminum alloy rims are lighter-weight while Ford steel rims are much heavier. If you are looking for a cost savings, then steel rims are what you need for your Ford Focus. Ford Focus aluminum alloy rims are much more expensive and can cost several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars per rim. Road salts can eat away at an aluminum rim’s finish, ruining the clear coat and paint job. Ford steel rims also make excellent snow rims.
