Hi People

Im New to the forum -been a ford fan since I was a little kid - love the 80's fords as they are my favourites.

We are now the proud owners of a 2001 Fiesta Zetec 1.25 after my dad surprised me and my Mrs with it on Monday for us to use as our second car. Quite a nice surprise believe me.

Now - it needs 3 new tyres, so im thinking I might aswell get 4 new tyres so they are all the same
the wheel size is 185 55 14 h

I want to know from fellow drivers of this car - what brand of tyre to go for or reccomendations, I have checked the usual sites and my finds include

Falken ZE912
Dunlop sp 01
Goodyear Duragrip

All the above can be fitted for approx £60 a tyre from blackcircles

however I thought it would be a good idea to find out from fellow members what they have had for there fiestas.

Also the car has no alloy wheel locking nut so Im going to have to get the locked nuts drilled out or something - however can anyone tell me what size of nut i need as replacement as I will need to buy a new set of locking nuts.


Thanks in advance.

Tyres247 for the Goodyear 71.22
