The base S model and mid-level SE model usually came with 195/65R15 tires, which are 15 inches in diameter and 6.5 inches wide. These tires are designed for all-season performance and provide good fuel efficiency, but may not offer the best handling or traction in wet or snowy conditions.

For those looking for the most performance-oriented setup, the 2012 Ford Focus offers an optional 18-inch wheel package with 235/40R18 tires. These tires offer more grip and better cornering ability than the smaller options, but at the cost of ride comfort and fuel efficiency.
