Tirerack has updated their templates for their wheel "viewer" for the beloved Fiesta ST. Still can't see the wheels on the cars yet, hopefully they will update that soon. :D

17s are OEM in the states as well. I'm personally looking for a 16x8 wheel. But that size with our bolt pattern seems to be hard to come by...

Have they updated the template so we can see the car with wheels on yet? It didn't work last time I checked.

I decided to do something "different"... I *REALLY* wanted a 17x7.5 wheel with 42 offset, so I compromised and got the Sport Tuning T9. I'll either get 215/40-17 Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 or Dunlop Direzza D2s. I'm hoping this wheel/tire combination will come in around the same overall weight as the stock wheels and tires (or under).

You look to be a few lbs per wheel under factory weight even with the meatier tires ;)

I haven't seen any, sorry buddy. There's no 17x8s either unless you order a custom wheel like Team Dynamics. They could make you some 16x8s...

man im suprised that good tires for this car are easily under 100$ from tire rack. Decent tires for my MS3 were around 130-160$ each. And they were bigger, but not much, 245-40R-17 i THINK. Not a ton bigger than the 205's on this car.

Such a bummer. The only thing I can find is a few 15x8s, i think that might be too small

Could you point me to these 15x8's I have had little luck but I think a 225-45-15 Bfg rival would be plenty wide for a track tire plus if the rim is light enough good weight savings . Tia

I found some dealer in the UK. Its an eBay seller. If you Google Axe wheels they come up with a few options or at least advertise a 4x108 15x8

My T9 wheels arrived from Tire Rack in good shape today. It only took ONE day to get here to Dallas from their Shreveport, La wherehouse. Two of them weighed in at 19.5 pounds, the other two 19.7 pounds. I'm getting some custom overlays for the center caps made today. I'll take pictures of them when I get the center caps done. They look really nice, much better than I thought. The 215/40-17 Dunlop Direzza D2s will be here on Monday. They are coming from the same Shreveport location. I'll probably have them installed on Tuesday. :D
