Currently I have 13" wheels on my fiesta. I'm looking at increasing this - just wondering if anyone could let help me out? What's the maximum I would be able to fit without having to play with the suspension and arches etc. Basically - I'm looking for a straight wheel / tyre swap. And finally, would you have any recommendations?


Thanks,

Adam

It depends on the fiesta in question, usually 15's are ok on standard shocks etc, but you can sometimes go up to 17" without mods (not very often tho). Best to get yourself down to a wheel/tyre place and just ask what is recommended for the car, they should know and try and help. If you are going to lower it, then speak to a garage that'll carry out the work as they are best suited to advise.

Also forgot to mention that 15" wheels will improve the looks etc without compromising the ride quality, as a straight swap they are the best bet because tyres are generally cheaper than 16's.
