FIESTA space saver wheel

Recommended Posts

Hi I have just bought a 2016 Fiesta ecoboost and want to purchase a space saver wheel.  The tyres on my car are 195/45/R16. Could anyone please tell me exactly what size space saver I need as it seems very confusing as the car has 16 inch wheels so do 14 or 15 inch space savers fit. Any help to prevent me buying the wrong wheel would be much appreciated. Thank you

AFAIK fiesta space savers are all the same - the larger wheels just have lower profile tires§ meaning the total circumference stays the same.  The one in my Fiesta is a 14" (can't remember the exact measurements), but its basically a 14" Fiesta wheel with a higher profile tyre on it .  The proper screw to attach the wheel to the well isn't cheap btw (think it was £10+) and you will also need a jack and wheel brace if the wheel is to be any use.  

 

On my previous mk7 fiesta I used spare wheel/jack/brace from an old Focus which I got on eBay for £40.  Problem with that obviously is you dont know the history of the wheel and a replacement tyre was impossible for me to come by locally.  I'll try remember to look at the measurements of the genuine wheel when I'm out at the car next for you.

 

EDIT: 175/65 14 is the size according to a quick online search.
