Best Tyres ?

03 September 2014 - 08:40 PM

Hi everyone, this is more my curiosity playing up and trying to plan ahead but I was wondering what best tyre brand for my car would be. It's a 1.6tdci focus - latest model.

I've put michellin primacy 3's all round on there but have been told by an experienced tyre fitter and an experienced mechanic who's owned god knows how many cars and what not that they're not good for my car as it's heavy and front wheel drive and apparently they'll eat through them.

It's been recommended that I stuck with the brand that came with my car originally which is continental. Tyres are 215/55/R16 - 93H

Any advice would be well appreciated

Thanks in advance

My Focus Titanium Build - Tom

21 December 2013 - 09:36 PM

Hi all, welcome to my build. Bit of a late start considering i bought the car back in may but here goes nothing. 

 

Can't say that i have done anything major to the car, just a few small touches that make it a little bit different to other Focus's in my area. Things i have done are as follows,

 

  • Replaced stock Dipped beam bulbs to Osram H7 night breakers
  • Replaced front sidelights to Osram cool blue intense W5W 
  • Replaced front and rear indicator bulbs to Philips silver vision PY21W
  • Replaced Stock air filter with a K&N (E-2993) 
  • Replaced Stock locking wheel nuts that always rust with McGard ones 
  • Painted Front brake callipers and rear brake drums with Red Engine Paint (you basically need something that can take heat) 
  • Replaced front Dull looking footwell lights with Blue Led W5W bulbs
  • Bought a rubber smart key cover (stops it getting scratched)

Here's the links online

Spoiler Upgrade

16 December 2013 - 05:25 PM

Hey all,

 

Been thinking lately if its worth doing a small mod to my Mk3 titanium focus. I really like the look of the Zetec S focus spoiler and was thinking should i or shouldn't i? 

 

Just wanted to know what everyones views on it are, do you think its worth it ? Will it suit it ? or is there no point unless the whole body kit is changed? 

 

This may well also void the warranty so may not be something i'll do until 2015 however it can't hurt to plan out a few things and get some ideas from other ford fans. 

 

I should also mention id have no idea how to fit it myself so labour costs would come into it. plus spraying it panther black. 

 

so yeah...what are your thoughts ?

 

cheers
