Alloys how big to go on a MK4

Hey

I'm looking to fit some after market alloys to my MK4 fiesta, basiclly the bigger the better. I'm looking at getting some 17" as i think 15" or 16" will be too small for my liking. All i need to know is it possible with out causing any problems and if anyone has done it and how it looks.

Any thoughts are great

Re: Alloys how big to go on a MK4

I've done this using 17" Formula alloys with Toyo 205/40 tyres

I found the suspension was too spongey so I fitted a G-Max kit which is a lot stiffer, it's well worth doing if the roads you drive on are smooth and flat

It's a bloody nightmare if you hit a pot hole or uneven road & because most of the roads in the UK except for the motorways are crap I would seriously consider whether you want to watch the road more than what's in front of you!

Re: Alloys how big to go on a MK4

I fitted 17's on my MRK4 2 weeks ago the suspension was far to spongey so I droped it 40mm fitted a G max kit and replaced the shocks.Still its a nightmare every bump on the road makes the wheels hit the arches.the car is alot stiffer but if someone advised me befor hand that it would be this much hassle I would of stuck to smaller wheels.
