hi could someone please help me
I have just purchased a 59 plate fiesta zetec s.
When the car was new the optional extra Street Pack was never added but now id like to add the bigger 17" street pack wheels.
The wheels arrived today and i fitted them but they seem to rub on the back when the car bounces and the front at full lock.
Is this because the wheels cannot be fitted to standard and only the street pack or have i made a mistake?
Any help would be appreciated :D

What tyres have you got on the 17s? Sounds like the profile could be wrong.

Pirelli 225/45
Would spacers correct the problem?

No idea on the spacers - but the tyres would seem to me to be the problem. The 17s should wear 205/40s according to the manual.

seems like the profile of the tyre is your problem here, might need a new set of right sized tyres. :)
