In Topic: New Tyres For 17" (Street Pack) Alloys?

05 March 2012 - 10:21 PM

Hi I have just bought a set of 17" street pack alloys and have fitted Kumho KU39s these had a good write up on one of the tyre survey web sites, cost £62.50 each fitted and balanced at a local tyre outlet. :)

In Topic: Is A Spare Tyre Really Necessary?

I would say YES I have had run flats for the last few years on my last car BMW M Sport so no problem,
But now with the Fiesta I would say yes, As it happens my car came with a spare free of charge,

Just for the peace of mind ( YES ) If you don't like the 50 mph spare then buy a proper wheel it will fit in the boot well. :)

In Topic: Thinking Of Buying A 1.4 Petrol Titanium 2011 Fiesta

Hi I was in the same dilemma a few weeks ago, I had no preference so I did my maths and compared what the running cost would be over 12 months, As I only do about 6k a year ----- The diesel = £1000 more to buy / 10p a ltr more / servicing costs more, It worked out only a few quid in it, So went for 1.4 petrol,

If I did a lot more miles I would probably went for the diesel.

I was in the same position as you last week but found a seller on E Bay selling a set of 17" ford fiesta zetec s wheels advertised as in excellent condition, I received them yesterday and they are, The wheels inc delivery were £380 the set. :)

I am looking to buy the tyres now, I am looking at the KHUMO 39s 205/40/17 they had a really good write up on one of the web sites,

I was not aware of the the steering rack mod will have to check this out, I also would like any info from anyone who knows anything about this mod.
