I've hit some large holes in the last few months so expected some damage. The new fiesta wheels are a lot better than the older firsta. The new 17s took a lot of pounding and only suffered one dent.
There was no air loss or balancing issues.

Well aint they mine as on my picture, which are stated ZETEC S 17'' alloys which was the upgrade when the other person had my car from new,if so is the X-PACK what i was told,is it the STREET PACK.

I thought they were standard 17'' alloys on the ZS.

What are your alloys jace? Have you got a photo? They could be aftermarket, or could no longer be listed for spares on the ford parts website, there's only two 17" and the other is the 7.5, either way I haven't heard wonderful things about any of the mk7 alloys (standard zetec excluded for some bizarre reason), it's fairly common knowledge just a quick Google will show reams of results, both in the standard press (auto express and the like) to other forums like this one and this one

They would have been my first choice for rims, but we don't get them here, I have the standard Titanium 16" rims and to be honest I think they do ride a bit hard on the 45's, I think once my tires are worn I'll change to 50 as I have seen on the facelift 16" rims

I've got 16", 5 x 2-spoke alloys on my Fiesta van and I swear they are made of soap! In the 9 years that I owned my old alloy wheeled Focus, I NEVER had a buckled or dinged wheel, but the Fiesta? TWICE in the 18 months that I've owned it!

Now, this may also have something to do with it having narrow profile tyres (the Focus didn't) but ye gods! I've seriously considered changing the darn things to something more sturdy!

AAARGH!!!

The ride is a bit harder and a bit noisy but they was on when i had the car 3 months ago,i just get use of it.

.........Don't look at the bad locking nuts.....tried to clean :)
