Mk7 And Mk7.5 Alloys

22 February 2015 - 07:53 AM

I am trying to fit mk 7.5 12 spoke titanium X alloys to my 2009 fiesta. I know the offset is lightly different but wheels do fit. I know that the wheel bolt holes are smaller but they do fit the studs. The question is do I ned different wheel nuts.

Mk 7 And Mk 7.5 Wheel Nuts

21 February 2015 - 04:07 PM

I am upgrading my alloys from Mk7 to Mk7.5 Titanium X wheels 12 spoke.  I know the offset is different by 5mm but this is not a problem and I know that the wheel bolt hole diameters are different, but they still fit.


Due to the wheel hole dia being smaller, what I need to know is, do I need different wheel nuts or will the existing ones do.



Mk7+ Fiesta - How Many Miles 2008 Model Year Onwards

12 February 2015 - 10:17 PM

I am doing some research on how well the MK7, 8 is progressing since its introduction in 2009.  For this poll I am interested in the number of miles owners have on their cars.


Your help would be grateful and when your mileage increases, you can delete your vote and vote at the next level.


It would also be helpful if you could post how many miles you do each year


Honest answers please.


Thank you.


Oh, and I do 11,000 miles each year

Switching From 195 45 16 To 195 50 16

05 February 2015 - 03:45 AM

Has anyone tried switching tyres from 195 45 16 to 195 50 16.  It will give me 10mm extra sidewall, reduce curbing, improve ride and stop my allows bending having bent 4 already. The speedo will change by 3% but then it will just be more accurate than present.


I may even think of 205 50 16 which will give 15mm extra sidewall and a speedo change of 5%

Bent Alloy Rims

22 July 2014 - 11:42 AM

I have bent 3 alloy rims in the last 5 years, and have had to replace them.  They were the 7 spoke 16" with 195 45 profile tyres.   Does anyone know if the new 16" wheels are stronger that are fitted on the 2013 Zetec fiestas.  I know they are 50 profile, but think they are worth changing.
