3mm different in offset is nothing. there will be ZERO negative effects.Several years ago, I accidently drove over a patch of black ice and hit a curb with the Escape. Mercifully, there was no mechanical damage (my pride was hurt...) however, the wheel took some curb damage. It didn't bother me then, but I put off repairing it since the car came with the optional PVD chrome wheels. Now, after doing a headlight retrofit and Kuga tail lights, it's time to give the wheels some love.
I inquired about wheel repair, but the shop said that they don't do chrome wheels. Is this true or is it BS? I also thought about powered coating the wheels silver, but it would cost approximately $650 to do the whole set. The last option is Focus ST snowflakes, but my head is telling me that the three-millimeter difference in offset might affect the car negatively. That's not including the cost to obtain a set of ST snowflakes and new tires.. Thoughts? Attached is the damage inflected. Feel free to criticize 😂
get the snowflakes if you like them. these cars are very forgiving to different wheel sizes and tire sizes.
or buy a single new chrome wheel. here is the part number.
