I think you are a lot safer to use the nuts off of a steel wheel rather than the alloy nuts. I'm sure I read this before somewhere on the forum. :D

I know that my old Mk2 Mondeo used the same bolts for steel and alloy wheels, but they had an alloy shim/washer. The steel and alloy wheels had different size bolt holes, which allowed for steel/steel or alloy/alloy contact depending on the wheels. I don't know whether this is the case for the Fiesta but shouldn't be too difficult to check.

But, if your car came specced with a steel spare, then I would have thought that if different bolts were required they would have been provided.

Thank's for the replies, my Fiesta came with that tyre sealant so got a new wheel, jack and brace from a scrappy but the car they came from didn't have another spare set of nut's, just wnted to check if the same one's did both wheel's
