Hi there, im buying a mk2 fiesta very shortly for a project car, im hoping someone can give me some help on wheel size, i have most other things sorted! :)

I want to fit some replica mk2 escort group 4 alloys, will they fit?

If not what are the actual size i need to look for? and what other classic ford alloys will fit standard

Thanks

Nathan

according to 'automobile-catalogue.com'...the fiesta Mk2 ran on 4.5-5J x13"....with 63.3mm centre bore and an offset of 36-37.5mm....don't know about group4 Escort replicas and how small you can go with the offset  as I'm guessing it'll be wider and bigger...what's the escorts wheel details?

the replicas by the sounds of things are made for your car's PCD and offset but wheel size is set standard at 13x7

nah my cars offset is completely different to that! :) ...read above!

 

Seriously tho' its a 4 bolt/stud with as in 4x108mm in the Mk2 fiesta...so make sure that is same on the replicas ...normally the wider you go the lower offset you can go so the wider wheel s don't 'intrude' on the inside of wheel well/arch.....so check the 4x108 PCD matches and the offset isn't greater than 36/37mm and centre bore is at least 63.3mm as if its bigger you can fit spigot rings to compensate...which only leaves the offset to find out...surely they must provide you with all this info or they should at least find out since they're selling them

Well im going to contact them when i get paid, it purly says they will make them to fit your car, iv been told by a friend that i could fit spacers to deal with any problems concerning width

Another question  ishould ask is engine capability, iv got a RS2000 mk5 escort engine atm from my dads car to drop in, and been told it would fit easily, but im not 100% sure either


thats the 2.0 turbo

if you get the offset right will be no need to buy spacers ...so you'll need to investigate more or ask them what offset they recommend...they can't be making them without a clue on this!

 

Can't help you on the engine but usually when 2 or three 'trustees' agree that it'll fit .....then its golden

depends if its a road or rally application....rally and you don't need huge alloys and rubber band tyres but if its road then I'm thinking you can go a bit bigger than 13"

you need wheels that fit within these specifications:

 

Fiesta Model Years 1983 to 2001 PCD 4×108 ET (offset) 35 to 45 Centre Bore 63.4mm

 

http://www.wheelfitment.net/ford )

 

if you click on the link, if they came off a different ford with the same spec as above, they're bolt straight on. 

 

You will find it difficult to fit much bigger than 15's if you want to carry passengers in the back, if no-one will ever sit in the back (seats removed?), you'll probably squeeze some 16's and not have any issues.
