      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. My girlfriend's KA currently has the standard 13" 5J steel wheels with 165/65 tyres and we'd like to replace them with 14" alloys. I'm struggling to find second-hand rims of the design we like for the KA, although I know I've seen plenty of them on the road! I can however find the same design from a Ford Escort - 14" with 165/60 tyres and the same fitment 4x108, but they are 6J. Does anyone have any experience of fitting 14" 6J wheels to an unmodified KA? Although 165/60R14 tyres are fine, with the extra rim width I'm wondering whether they'll either stick out too far or potentially rub on full lock. Thanks in advance. Ben
