Hi I have a Mondeo 2.0 zetec disel estate 2007 model (Not the newest model) it has 16" wheels on at the moment with 205/55r 91V tyres on. I never was keen on the design to be honest.

I have just bought some ST220 18" Alloys with a 7.5 J rim width. Thing is i have no clue what sizes of tires i can buy to fit the wheel and my car. Would like some to fill the arch and would like to know what will look good and feel good.

I would be grateful for any help thanks :)

I fitted 225/40/18's to mine - this was the closest fitment to equaling the 205/55/16 size - which means the speedo remains accurate.
Try this calculator [url="http://www.etyres.co.uk/tyre-size-calculator.htm"]http://www.etyres.co.uk/tyre-size-calculator.htm[/url] - you can see the maximum recomended difference.
Not sure about spacers....my offset is 38 to 45. Your later model may be different though 50 or 55?
