Horseshoes - not sure about price.
Really depends on their condition and what the tyres are like.
You selling yours to help fund a funky alloy purchase?

If you have a V6, make sure the horseshoes are from a V6, the brembo brakes require bigger clearance than the twinnies.

A good set would set you back about 300 yoyo's but you get what you pay for . It took a while to get my set for the old 166 and they were a bit more than 300

Is the 166 a TS or V6 2.5/3.0?

Cheers.

****e well I don't know what car the ones I bought came from. I knew the V6 has bigger brakes, but I was sure that the alloys were all the same as they all look the same.

I might bring in one and compare it to one of your old alloys Levante?

The parts catalogue suggests they are the same alloy regardless of engine size 2.0/2.5/3.0 & they are 7.5" x 17" Part No. 60629500 (which should be marked on the alloys)

No bother at all man, anything you want is there. Just be quick haha. It is an auto also so if you need anything specific it's all there.

The offset is slightly different as is the width of the wheels.

Say there are different sizes - would wheel spacers solve the problem?

The offset (eg ET35) & size (eg 7.5Jx17) should also be marked on the wheel.

In the Focus! That won't do at all...

Nah, just check these digits against what's on yours:

Part # 60629500 (as David said above)

7 1/2 J x 17 H2-41

That's what is marked on the ones I have outside.

I'll ask Mick 164 as he knows exactly as he has had it on his 166 before. I think you should be ok. The V6 ones are 8j wide I think

I'd just throw the wheels on but I have no tyres on them. And don't want to buy any until I know for sure...
