Im thinking of putting 17" alloys on my mk6 fiesta 1.4 zetec but i have been told that the wheels would rub. Is there any truth in this? am i better going with a smaller wheel size? any help would be appreciated.

Have something to contribute?

I'm old and reckon big wheels mean big tyre bills and poorer ride.

But if I were to admit how much money I wasted on cars when i was a lad...

Go for it
