Pro's= car's stance looks wider

Con's= you will need to buy longer wheel studs, and this is a bit of a pain in the bottom on our cars, as Nuts hold the wheels on, NOT bolts. Also need to be careful how far you choose to have the wheels spaced outwards, as if you pass the arches not only will it fail an MOT, the local law enforcement officers will gladly give you a ticket for your hard earned efforts, and also tell you to get them removed !!!

Cons- just don't do it, ford spent a fortune designing the suspension on your car.
