Didn't found a topic about this so I made one. Here you can show off your wheels. Here's what I got:

1. Winter wheels, original Ford 14" wheels. 165/75 tyres

2. Original Ford 16" wheels. 195/45 tyres

3. Current summer wheels, Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 17" ET38 with GT Radial Champiro 328 205/40 tyres. Love these wheels. Those fit perfectly to a panther black Fiesta.

4. New project wheels, OZ Racing Ultraleggera 18" with Toyo Proxes 205 / 35 tyres. Slightly scratched and few gutter rashes. Thinking of painting these golden.

When it comes summer time, I plan on getting these; [url="http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/product-Fiesta-Mk7-Pumaspeed-Signature-Wheel_177.jsp"]http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/product-Fiesta-Mk7-Pumaspeed-Signature-Wheel_177.jsp[/url]

My wheels now are standard 16 inch ZS ones, just put winter tyres on them, so will be the best time to buy those 18's in Summer.

They're lush! Properly expensive though

Yeah, should hopefully transfer over to the newer Fiesta shape though, so will be a 4 and half year investment at the least :P

Did you not upload your images to photobucket/Flickr etc first then copy the image code and paste it on the forum?

Some nice wheels on here guys. Anyone got pics of 18s fitted? Just wondering if they'd look too big as 17s seem to suit the Fiesta perfectly! Speaking as a Focus owner, 19s look well on the ST and RS, but have seen 20s a couple of times and that's when it starts drifting towards koolart!

Will be adding 16" escort cosworth wheels soon to my mk7 :)

Not a fan of Cosworth wheels, nor am I a fan of fitting tyres to wheels that don't fit, this 'stretching' is stupid.

What's that hanging out of the front grille?

Another stupid fad, having a leash sticking out of the front for when you want to take the car for walkies.

A tow strap. Usually put on track cars but many people now using them purely for (bad) decoration

lol it does look like a tongue. It could probably also be used to lock it to a lampost so noone nicks it.

It has been done on here. Someone will hopefully repost a pic. I can't remember the title of the tread and can't be bothered to search for the pics right now - lol sorry - but they're here somewhere.

Has anyone tried Plasti Dipping wheels?

Yeah I plasti dipped mine black, had to take it off though as I curbed one of the alloys and I had run out of spray to repair it.

I don't think the Cossie wheels work. Would have been better with painting the standards black....course that does leave that to me to do now...

They're really nice but they don't look 17" :p could be the wheels are a higher profile than normal?

Either way get some lower profile tyres and it'll be perfect :D

Yea you're right they look like they're 16" not 17"  :(

It is all down to the angle of the photo, they are 17", and the tyres are reccomended by Ford, 205/40 ZR17, they look huge in person

Ultraleggeras look great on Fiesta. Have you noticed any improvements on handling compared to factory rims?

blade

Yes, the car handles a lot better (Pirelli P Zero Nero tyres are great), I also made some improvements to the suspension (Eibach springs etc.)

Gary Minty Jupe

bought set of white 18's and had them refurbished and painted sea grey to contrast with the panther black of the car
