British roads are poor quality. Thats the only issue realy. im sure ford alloys are fine for their intended usage. (not driving int oa bg hole in te0eroad)

Buckled wheels are very common on Mk7 Fiestas, the smaller wheels 14" and 15" seem to bend very easily, 17" seem to stand up a bit better.

Good link & cheers for that. There's a good price for a spare with jack kit etc on there. Do you know what size tyre I'd need to put on it so

A: It fits in the Fiesta 2008 tyre well in the boot.

B: It gives me what I'd need in terms of rolling radius bearing in mind I have the 17" streetpack alloys on my 08 Zetec S (17 / 205 / 40).

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
