Prepare for some problems, youll need to buy spacers, have to get lower profile tyres, thats the 50-70 number, may have to go down to 40's or min 45's, if your talking about the mk5 zetec s then the alloys are only 15" and 50 profile tyres will do, the mk6 zs alloys are 16" (mk6 is same model as st) then 40-50 is your best bet, tooo big of a profile will throw your speedo out

Spacers Recommended yes. At the moment I'm getting rubbing from my 15" focus alloys at the front end, tyre is 195/50/R15, I have spacers on the back. I didn't put them on the front because they didn't rub first off (At least I thought they didn't), Front is getting its 40mm drop wednesday so will ask them to put the spacers on during the rebuild. I had 15" on my old saxo, always rubbed when I had back seat passengers.

Spacers are quite cheap on ebay. Anywhere between £5 - £10 for 5mm, That's all you need really, If you want an Idea of what to look for I can tag an image of my spacers if you'd like
