It would be nice to see a sedan version of the fiesta imported.  You'd be unique for sure!

Sorry they don't do 195/50 16's Jerry.  As much as i would say this size will be better for stability.  The 195/55/15 will improve comfort.    The actual tyre is very grippy and has been amazing for the climate we have right now.  If it gets worse it can only get a little better.  


Cross climate all around has felt quite nice from summer tyres.  I'm sorry i never got to try these on the fiesta before i sold it.  My civic would slip and slide on slick roads.  The actual tyres is rock solid.  I love it.

I wouldn't of thought 195 -> 205 would fit considering this only increased the width making them wider.  You are better staying with 195/50/16.  This is used on 2013+ models.  It does take the speedo up 3.26%.  That will knock the speedo out considerbly more.  I went from 195/45/16 to 195/55/15 2.41% more  It is suggested to not take it any more or less than 2.5% from factory fitted otherwise you'll likely need a speedo recalibration.What an incredible difference on smoothness when it comes to bumps and pot holes.   Remember the second digit always increases the size of the tyre.  The width wouldn't do much apart from rub on the arches when turning the wheel.

Michelin cross climate they feel very grippy, wet and dry warm and cold.  Wish i had done it a long time ago.  Saves you having to worry about a really bad winter and not being prepared while the prices go up and the stock runs low.  Hopefully we won't have a seriously bad winter for awhile but be prepared.   Still perfect in summer weather here in devon in September almost october as well!

In Topic: Climate Control Resets Itself

26 September 2015 - 01:56 PM

Mine had been known to occasionally reset it self back to 22 and turn the A/C on.  Usually i have it on Auto 20 / AC OFF.  Not sure what does it.  It didn't happen frequently.  I just know it did reset itself back to 22 with the a/c on.


The oddest behavior i ever had was fan blowing at full speed when i would start the car.  I eventually found taking the fuse out of the glovebox and reinserting it fixed this.


Otherwise it's shouldn't be anything to worry about.  If it was doing it more frequently i'd question it.
