Gonna agree 100%. This is NOT a cheap job. Even swapping from 5x100 to 5x114.3 on my STi was going to be close to $1k and that was with used parts. I'd imagine AT least as much would be required for the Fiesta, if not more.Hubs and brake rotors for starters, providing they will fit the front knuckle and axle and the rear spindle. Might be a problem with calipers if the rotors are a different size.
seems like an awful lot of work for little effect.
Can't use Focus hubs. The 2000-2011 hubs are 4x108 and the 2012-2013 hubs are 5x108 and they won't fit into the Fiesta knuckles. They do make adapters to go from 4 lug to 5 lug, but the extend the wheel out over an inch. At least with adapters, you won't need new rotors.Agreed. I'm still curious what parts need to be changed. If I wanted to use 5 x 108, instead of 4 x 108, could I just use focus hubs? Fiesta rally cars seem to use 5 stud wheels instead of 4. Again, just curious what needs to change (brake parts, etc.).
Much is required. Knuckles, struts, custom axles, calipers, rotors, wheels. The rear require a custom mount to mount the Mazda hubs. Probably $2500 with low cost wheels.Well I'm curious, can you tell me what is involved in the Mazda 3/Focus swap?
Does it change the backspacing you need?
What are the brake options like?

It does widen the stance by around 1" per side.
Brake options are huge. Even the stock Mazda3 brakes are a big upgrade to the Fiesta.
This is not a reasonable option for a street Fiesta.
