Hi I have a focus mk3 titanium x with 18 inch low profile wheels

Customer Question

Hi I have a focus mk3 titanium x with 18 inch low profile wheels and I want to down size to 16 inch to improve the ride. The current wheels have an inset of 55mm but I can't find anything more than about 48mm in a new 16 inch alloy. This reduction has no implications for the space in the wheel arch - in fact there is more space for wheel without fouling the suspension etc but will it affect the handling?
