I need some advice as I wont pay 180 pounds per new alloy from ford.
My tyres are 195/45/16R and alloys are 16'x 6.5 (7 spoke) - fiesta mk7. Can you tell me if i need exacly 6.5 alloys to fit my current tyres or I could get 7 or 7.5? Im looking for at least 3 answers from you guys, big cheers if you can help.
I was thinking to get BK racing alloys. Can anyone recommend other good brands? I beleive I can get around 100 pounds per alloy so thats 80 less than from ford.
Just to let you know guys I went to the garage today to check why one of my tyres needed to be added some air every 5 days and it tured out that alloy is buckled. Its not serious and I was told I can drive but you could easly see it and probably air was going out from there. It was not done by me as I bought my car two months ago and air was going out since then. I will never know how it happened and my car seem to drive normal without wobble or shiver at high speeds. When i saw it all i thought was damm, I need new set of alloys as I would not risk another bad quality of ford's alloys. Probably in the future i will need to replace them as there are many topics here about buckled alloys :/ not happy but only 15 pounds to replace my tyre
Hello, Lets check what do you think is essential for such a small space in our fiest's boot.
My boot has: * Towing rope * Jump leads * Set of tools (i think its 40 piece) * Car snow socks (Just recently bought and will definatelly help me next time when it snow) * Decicer and Ice/snow scraper * Cable ties * Few different types of cloths * Scissors (probably dont need them) * Sealer tape (tip from my old mate who is a mechanic) * Safety vest * Car fault code reader (havnt used it for this car yet but i know where the plug is) * Tyre repair kit and inflater (hidden underneath) * Vacum cleaner (small portable one and i should probably leave in the shed instead)
All stored in a medium sized bag which takes about 1/3 of the whole space :/
Missing things: * No wheel jack as I have no spare wheel but there is a tyre repair kit instead.
Will need: * Bulbs (will buy spare ones when one of them fails) * First aid kit (need to find one cheap)
I have got small puncture in of the tyres. Once every ten days I need to inflate from something like 20 to 32 PSI. Would you use some kind of a sealant or would you take it local garage and have it fixed (if yes, then how much is it nowdays)?
Post your photos to show what your fiesta have been through recently...
1. This was last Saturday when it was snowing whole day (Oxfordshire).
2. This was Monday when i tried to drive up the hill (it looks like a small hill and it is!). It took me 1.5 hour to get just up this one hill. Every meter i had to get out the car and use small shovel to remove snow under the tyres. At one point three old ladies helped pushing my car to move further meter
I did vote "yes" as I love driving in snow. I know its dangerous, caused me lots of problems but i still love it.
At the moment im trying to desperately buy car snow socks before next snowfall however i cant get 195/45/R16 anywhere cheap - any recommendations?
