Offset

the standard ford escort finesse alloys are et41 so et33 is nearly a cm out so unlikely to fit without rubbing especially with lowering

 

GTI 15" ET38 - fits

 

Mondeo Si 16" ET35 - fits

 

Cossie 16" ET28 - not so well

 

RS7 17" ET35 - fits

 

OZ Superllegera 16" ET37 - fits

 

Compomotive MO old style 17" ET38 - fits

 

That's my experience. How is ET33 actually gonna handle ? No idea. Especially with disc brakes in the back, which makes the axle lot wider, it may scrub a bit. It's all about individual fitment, that's why I was asking John if he has aprox. 3 mm to give.

depends what width the wheels are, if they are less than 7.5j then yes they'll fit, you might need to run narrowish tyres though.

the disc beam adds a few mm either side thats it not "lots wider" by any stratch of the imagination as when i changed beams my ET38 8J rims still fit

 

Focus hubs with 280 mm are at least 10 mm wider than MK5 RS2k beam. That's why I used the term.

Oh well the wheels are sold now that I was looking at,

 

Dave i think so?

 

Does the smaller off set 33 means the wheels stick out from the arch, and a bigger off set (in terms of the numerical offset value) means the wheels are into the arch?

 

I have just confused myself with all i've read

 

and I have a mk5 rs2000 conversion with soon to be mondeo V6 caliper and escort cossie discs up front

 

I think I will get another set of GTi rims

Yes. Yes, it does.

 

TBH There was one small problem with those OZ's - he just couldn't specify the diameter of center hole. That's what put me of to start with.
