Ford Fiesta Mk 7 Alloy Size

25 June 2013 - 09:59 AM

Hey guys.

 

Apologies in advance if this has already been asked, but I could not find it anywhere.

 

I am looking for the exact size of Ford Fiesta mk7 62 plate pre MCA alloy size.

 

I managed to find that the distance between holes is 4*108, but what is the size of the center hole?

 

Besides, any of you tried fitting rims with a larger center hole and then adding the adjusting nuts onto it?

 

Thanks in advance


Telematics Box

This would probably be more relevant to young drivers.

So as you all probably know, insurance for young drivers in this country is crazy expensive.

However, when I was looking for a cheap one, I found that a couple of providers (Bell, Insure the box, etc..) can provide a cheap insurance. However, only under the circumstance of installing a telematics box in your car, can you insure your vehicle with that company.

What are your opinions on this?

Are any of you aware of the restrictions that the box has and how it measures your driving performance?

The insurance broker could only say general things like don't brake too hard or don't do any wheel spins or hand brake turns....

He also mentioned that if you go faster than 100 mph your insurance is void immediately.

So do you know anything about how they measure if you corner at high speeds, and do some winter sliding etc??

Bigger Rims Effect

29 September 2012 - 04:27 PM

Hi guys. I got a quick question for you.

I was just wondering if putting bigger rims on the car would have effect to what speedometer is showing? i.e. the actual speed, how many miles it does, mpg calculator and etc.

The standard rims on fiesta mk7 zetec are 195/50 R15
The new ones would be 205/40/zr17

I know that the tires will fit the car.
Simply I dont want to mess with the computer and showings on the clock as the car is new.

Thank you in advance!
