18 inch wheels 5x108

I was looking in the St forums for the right wheel for the new focus rs.
St owners seem to go for the gram light 57dr wheel in 5x108 with 38offset 18x8.5.

Or oz ultralegerra 18x8 with 38 offset.

Just curious if anyone else is thinking of making their wheel size 1 inch smaller? There doesn't seem to be a lot of 5x108 light weight wheel options in 18 inch.

I prefer the thick 5 spoke or 6 spoke look but the new 19 inch wheels they showed at Geneva looks awesome.

I plan on sticking with 18's.
Won't be in serious need of going for lighter weight, but will be looking for a combination of a good stance that doesn't sacrifice performance

Ken Block having them on that car of his is even more of a reason we'll see that wheel or that style of wheel on the RS

I know about that 5 spoke, unfortunately I think it's ugly.

I like advan racing gt 5 spoke or neuspeed rse05 5 spoke.

I'm more likely to go with the gram light 52dr at the moment unless something else nice looking and light gets brought up

Won't the stock rims on the Focus RS be good enough? Unless you're planning to do some intense drifting and time attack..

all depends on what you're trying to achieve.
