FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
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
