      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hello Just wondering has anyone here replaced their wheels with something more durable, I wrote to honest John and he has suggested I have them replaced with 15" or even 14" steel wheels as fitted to the Fiesta Econetic model. I was thinking of doing this as I have had two front 16" Titanium alloys replaced back in June (which I managed to claim back from the council), I had a third minor buckled back wheel but it was very minor - so had to leave. I am now paranoid about pot holes and having read all these threads I can see that there must be a design fault. I would like to replace the wheels if possible but am wondering what implications this could have, if any, further down the line, with electronics or insurance. I had an Escort Finesse 1.6 for over 10 years and never had any problems with my alloys, however they weren't low profile.
