Customers of Ford’s all-new all-wheel-drive 350 hp Focus RS will now be able to order a fully certified winter tire kit for great driving enjoyment in the snow.
For customers in Canada, the package comes standard on Focus RS. The Focus RS arrives at dealerships in North America this spring.
The Focus RS Winter Wheel & Tire Package offers customers a unique set of wheels and tires – the first time an original equipment manufacturer is making a check-the-box winter tire option available in North America.
Ford Performance developed this package so the most demanding Focus customers can be outfitted with optimum equipment for winter conditions.
The winning setup is a 225/40R18 Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 tire mounted to a new 18×7.5-inch wheel, which looks very similar to the base Focus RS option, but is finished in sparkle silver to hide salt spray.
The set is complete with tire pressure monitoring sensors and center caps fully mounted and balanced and ready for installation at the dealer.
The wheel and tire are narrower, to provide improved snow traction, while the overall diameter is smaller, so owners can fit chains if necessary.
