Thinking about buying a set of winter wheels and tires. Borbet 16's. They came off of ZX3 Focus but I want to be sure that they will fit around the caliper on the Fiesta. The seller thinks they will fit around 280mm brakes... Anyone know the size on the FiST?

16's should fit no issue. There are a lot of people running 15's for their winters.

Focus wheels fit fine, but the factory offset on a focus makes the wheels tuck in too far on the Fiesta.. still fits, but looks funny.

Sorry for bringing this discussion back... But I gave incorrect info, the wheels are 15x7... But from what I am hearing, they will still fit. I am really in need of pulling the trigger on this very soon as the weather in Michigan has just taken a nasty turn for the worst... I can barely get the Fiesta moving anymore so I really need to get some winters. Thanks guys!

I typically rely on Tirerack to guide me on wheels. Their winter package for the FiST is a 15x6 which says to me a 16x7 will be fine. The only concern would be offset. Would the buyer let you try them out?

Well even more bad news... He isn't selling the wheels anymore... Haha so I went to TireRack and found the 15x6 wheel and tire package with winter tires on them and with shipping it'll be $550. Unless Discount Tire can beat that price with mounting and balancing and the whole 9 yards, I am probably just going to do that. That is a lot of dough to drop on tires and standard wheels but it is totally worth it to keep the Fiesta on the road for the winter!
