“We started this project knowing what our RS customers really want out of their cars,” says Adam Wirth, chassis supervisor, Ford Performance. “This tire package allows RS owners to continue spirited driving even in the snow.”

The package includes 225/40R18 Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 tires and 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 that are fully mounted and balanced and ready for installation at the dealer.

The Focus RS Winter Wheel & Tire Package is available only in North America – a $1,995 option.
