Will 16" rims fit my 98 fiesta?

Recommended Posts

 

Im only a noob at all this but im 99% that offset means the distance out you have to make between the alloy and the bit you attach the wheel to (told you i was a noob)! This then stops the new wheel rubbing on the arch. Please correct me people :)

As for you other question i have no idea

i dont know mate when i went buy my alloys the guy said i could have 15" on a high profile (which i got nw) but i would'nt be able to have a full car which was true because the other week i could smell the rubber burning off my tyres wen i had a full car.

he said if i had 16" i would have to take the inner arch lining out and the you can fit up to 17" i think.

if you put 15" low profile you will be able lower it quite abit i can only lower mine 40mm max

Thanks for fixing me up with tht link vinny. ;) made a little sense.

Thanks for getting back to me mig. I managed to find out what size Rims you can go to for a mk4 fiesta. You can go all the way to 17", but this means you need to get lower profile tyres, so it doesnt effect the wheel ratio. BUT 17" is to expensive, and the tyres are aswel when you come to replace.

Guna get 16" rims with a low profile. :rolleyes:

16" always used to be an expensive choice as was a very rare size.

Have they come down in price now? I know a lot of newer cars have started to come with 16" rims standard now.
