Tirerack is topnotch!

They have taken care of my tire/wheel needs for many years. They measured my blue Fiesta for fitments and took digital images for their "view on the vehicle" section. They have one of the most impressive facilties and staff I have ever seen!

That's awesome that they used your car for the website! I'll be getting my wheels from them too.

Oh yeah! I did not notice that until you mentioned it. Isnt digital great? I guess I should have requested a big ol' GMC blower sticking up out of the hood as well. Seriously, Tirerack is a very cool place. They have a test track in their front yard and a warehouse bigger than five football fields full of tires and wheels , etc as well as all the equipment required to make your wildest dreams come true.

Sorry, no.

Tire Rack doesn't normally have across the board deals or coupons. They work with each manufacturer separately to offer specials. These are usually rebates, gift cards, etc.

These will show up automatically when you look at any product that has a current special running.

But, please don't forget to help out the Faction by using our link:

We get a small commission, which goes a long way in helping us run this site and provide the occasional upgrades, etc. that are needed.

Was hoping they'd have the General Altimax HP tires that I'd had fitted to my Mazda5 in the Fiesta SEL's size, but it didn't come up when I searched... :( Those tires really improved ride & cut down on noise as well as vastly improved wet handling on my Mazda.

BTW - I did something on that car that was recommended to me as a way to provide a small de facto increase in sidewall thickness/aspect ratio - I ordered the replacement tires in the next width size up from what was already on the car (OEM). I've had no ill effects at all. Would something like that work on the Fiesta with 16 inchers?

Mac, looking to upgrade to 17's that are shown on your site ( Sparcos ) nice wheel. however i do have one question, and please , prey on my ignorance....all manufacturers ( and I beleive the Sparcos are manufactured by OZ ) list offsets and backspacing???? Ok, am i assuming a wheel with less off set stands slightly wider?...and in the case of the Fiesta what exactly is ideal?...I will be doing a 4 wheel allignment after installation of these and the ford Racing handling package.....

The sparco wheel is an appropriate fit, authough it may have a slightly different offset than the OE wheel. Yes, lower the ofset farther out the wheels will go.

I dont have complete records on the 11 ford fiesta wheel.... if you know your width and offset I can do the math for you and let you know how much it changes!

I guess the reason was i was comparing with the SVT wheel which has a 46mm offset. the closer to the outside of the fender well the better, but 4mm is pretty trivial ( I think.....)

Mac, do you know of any other 4-bolt OEM wheels from other manufacturers (i.e., Mini/BMW, Toyota, GM, etc.) that fit the Fiesta pattern/size/offset? For example, will some of the Mini Cooper apps fit the Fiesta?

MINIs are 4x100 I believe, which is the standard for much of the 4-bolt world. Ford uses 4x108, which is only shared by a couple other European only manufacturers. Some older Mustang, VW and Volvo wheels will fit the Fiesta bolt pattern, as well as all wheels made for the Focus, Escort, and Contour.

4x108 isn't the norm, but it isn't too hard to find in the aftermarket either. I've always eyed up a set of Rota Grids for myself...

From the Turning OFF Traction Control thread's recent posts regarding winter driving:

Just a quick note on my experience to date with the ContiExtremeDWS's. Dry conditions-excellent choice. Spirited starts can sometimes result in front wheel chirp. Dry on-ramps with a sharp turn and a few marbles (e.g. salt pellets, etc.) can easily turn into sideways adventures. And DWS is not the same as DWSI (in other words, on icy/frozen snow-covered streets, there is greatly diminished grip/traction/stopping ability).
