Fiesta Mk7 Tyre Profile?

7 posts in this topic

I have recently ordered some new alloys for my mk7 fiesta, they are 17"x7j.

I am wondering what profile tyres to get?? I am wanting a low profile look but obviously not too low so that every little stone feels like a pothole.

Any suggestions. Thanks

I've got 205/40/17s on mine and it's awful. Next tyre change I'm going to try 205/45/17 see if it's any better

ive got the same as above, 205/40/17 and i agree it does feel horrendous, everytime i hit a small pot hole i have to get out and check to see if ive buckled my alloy because it feels that bad!

Anything other than 205/40/17 will knock your speedo out.

205/45/17 = 3.37% out (70mph reads 72.36mph)

205/50/17 = 6.88% (74.8mph reading)

It is not recommended to go over 2.5% difference.

Hi guys.

Recently fiited mine with Goodyear Efficient Grip 215/40r17 as recommended by a tyre dealer.

Not much change in reading coming from the stock.

No rubbing or clicking on full lock.

Hope this helps.
