With regards to the rubbing - did you check the wheel offset is correct for your car?


As for the pulling to the right I take it you have checked the tyre pressures?

Hi Smithy

max tyre width given for ford ka any year is 14x165x60/65
or16x195x45
i would say that even taking into account what CYB suggests the wheels you are trying to fit are to wide.

p.s. just out of curiosity what model & year fiesta was it?
