Wheel Fitment


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

This may be a silly question but i don't know the answer so thought i would put it out to the public.

I have a 59 plate ford fiesta and it has the 15" steels on it, I am looking to get some older 14" alloys wheels for the car. Will the older alloys wheels from older fiesta and Ka's fit straight onto my new shape fiesta?

Any help will be appreciated.

I have done the Tyre calculation and it comes out as 7mm difference which is 1.3% so I am happy with that.

Cheers for the advice, I take it when you say fitments you mean the PCD and studs?

I have done some research and found that by going down to the 14" wheels with 175/65 tyres on them it will increase your fuel consumption, I do a lot of miles and if this helps then its worth a try.

Yep that's correct an the difference in fuel consumption will probably be minimal I went from 16" to 17" alloys and it made 2mpg difference maybe not even that much I know it soon adds up if you do a lot of miles but it will take long enough to recover the money spent on new alloys and tyres just a thought

That could be true, the reports i have seen have taken it from 52MPG up to 60MPG i know it doesn't sound much but it all helps.

I know the cost will out way the benefit for a while, But as i only have steels on there are the moment i think alloys will make it look nicer as well as help MPG, also i am in the position where i need 4 new tyres so will have to spend out for them anyway and the cost of alloys on top of new tyres is smaller than getting them just because i would like them.

Cheers for the help.
