  1. So considering the fact that I drive around a load of country roads which aren't the smoothest in the world. Do you think I'd be better off going for the 15" version so there's a little bit more rubber to protect the alloy? Jamie
  2. Do you mean these ones? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Fiesta-Zetec-ZS-ST-Street-Pack-15-Alloy-Wheels-Silver-MK6-MK7-MK8-/221691984180?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item339ddf3934 Surely a a newer set of wheels like these would be more likely to be better? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-MK9-ALLOY-WHEELS-SET-OF-4-ZETEC-15-INCH-GOODYEAR-TYRES-2014-/331461919687?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4d2cab83c7&clk_rvr_id=783693019264&afsrc=1&rmvSB=true Cheers, Jamie
  3. Ah okay. So what have these wheels come off then? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SINGLE-GENUINE-FORD-FIESTA-MK9-NEW-FACELIFT-SHAPE-15-ALLOY-WHEEL-AND-TYRE/331479862672?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D29165%26meid%3D04bb140439c245d08c263f6ee7097679%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D111593679688&rt=nc
  4. Hi, Sorry to still be noobing out over this. What's the opinion on these wheels? Would they be okay do we think? I'm just paranoid of what anyone on eBay says about what car they actually came from. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-MK9-ALLOY-WHEELS-SET-OF-4-ZETEC-15-INCH-GOODYEAR-TYRES-2014-/331461919687?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item4d2cab83c7 Thanks again to everyone! Jamie
  5. Thanks for the suggestion. I've had a really good look around their website and I'm still struggling to find a list of past cars/ components. All I can find is there new stuff. Any suggestions? Do you think that even if those are Titanium wheels they'll be okay (assuming their mk7.5/ 8)? Sorry for all the annoying questions, I just really can't afford to have wheels buckling again!
  6. Right, okay. So is there a list somewhere which shows which relates to which? As with all the replies above, I'm trying to find a stronger wheel than the ones I have currently on my 2010 Fiesta Titanium which has wheels made of cheese. So what are these likely to be for example considering they are listed as Mk9 which I wasn't sure actually existed? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4X-GENUINE-FORD-FIESTA-MK9-NEW-FACELIFT-SHAPE-15-ALLOY-WHEELS-AND-TYRES-/331442429212?pt=UK_CarParts_Acc_Wheels_tyres_Rims_Car_Wheels_ET&hash=item4d2b821d1c
  7. Sorry to be back annoying you all again. I just have another question. How can I recognise Mk7.5 Fiesta parts? I'm sure I'm just being an idiot, but I can't find any mention of them and no way of distinguishing their parts. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Agree with the above. This has all been amazingly helpful. Thank you all very much. One last question, if I got the black painted rims.. how easy is it to strip the paint off them, if down the line that was what I wanted to do?
  9. Thanks for all the help! That is all really useful. Would those black rims have been painted then? I can't find any black versions from Ford and obviously the worry is with that, that I would struggle to find a matching rim if I was to have any issues down the line. I accept nobody will know about those exact wheels. My question is just if anyone knows if Ford sells them already in black? Thanks again. You're all being very helpful.
  10. Thanks for the replies everyone. Excuse my ignorance, but I'm struggling to find a place where I could find wheels like those mentioned above. Also can't find anywhere the specifies mk7.5 or mk7 zetec wheels. Everywhere either talks about Mk7 wheels or it's just a number of brands that I've never heard of. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great. Thanks again for the help!
  11. Hi, So about 6 months ago I bought a Ford Fiesta Mk7 Titanium (2010). Since then I have had wheels buckle three times! Each time I've had the wheels replaced at quite a high cost. Last time my mechanic suggested I look at getting steel wheels if it happened again. Recently I hit a small pot hole and immediately my steering wheel started vibrating again. It's worth noting that this is always the extent of the problem. Not so bad I can see the buckle but I get a definite vibration through the wheel, especially at higher speeds. Steel wheels don't seem as easy to come by as my mechanic suggested. However there are plenty of alloy options. Basically what I'm after is some suggestions of some strong wheels that aren't going to buckle after every small bump and aren't going to break my bank. I live in the United Kingdom country side and the roads aren't always amazing and as much as I do my best to avoid pot holes occasionally there is nothing I can do (latest one was submerged). That being said the 2008 Fiesta I drove for three years never had any problems with its wheels. I've attached a photo of the wheels I currently have. Thanks in advanced for any help. I really like this car but the constant wheel issues are a nightmare and really make me regret buying it.
  12. So if it is that, and once I have found it, what is the best way to stop it buzzing?
  13. I have a buzzing noise that comes from under the dashboard of my Ford Fiesta Titanium 2010. I've put a video online [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKQIFRDebHY] which you can hear the problem in. It isn't too loud, but it is there and is annoying. <a data-ipb="nomediaparse" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKQIFRDebHY%5D%C2%A0which%20you%20can%20hear%20the%20problem%20in.%20%C2%A0It%20isn" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKQIFRDebHY%5D%C2%A0which%20you%20can%20hear%20the%20problem%20in.%20%C2%A0It%20isn" t%20too%20loud,%20but%20it%20is%20there%20and%20is%20annoying."=""> I have read on other sites [http://fiestamk7.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=558] that it could be something to do with the climate control sensor with it vibrating. Could this be the issue? Any suggestions? Thanks, Jamie
  14. I have a Ford Fiesta Mk7 (2010 Titanium). My problem is a bit difficult to describe but I'll give it a go. If my car has been left for a while, not sure how long but notice it in the mornings or after work, but not if I try to replicate straight away after turning the car off. When I put the keys in the ignition and turn the car electrics on (not starting the engine as it would be too loud to hear the issue), I will hear some strange sounds coming from under the dash board around the left hand side. They sound slightly like things are struggling to move (i.e. like someone was stopping the electric mirrors from moving). The mirrors are open so that isn't the issue. As I said it is difficult to describe but that is the best I can do I feel. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts? Thanks, Jamie
