|Fiesta has more than enough room for all your pull-it-yourself parts needs!|
Much like with the Miata, I remedied this by having a second set of wheels with not-as-skinny all season tires. If our area received more snow regularly, it would be worth having this second set as snow / winter tires instead of the all seasons. A few weeks back we confirmed the older Focus wheels work nicely on the Fiesta and going from a 17" wheel down to the 15" Focus wheels also lets me use the all season tires that rode on the Miata (magically they're the same size for both cars!).
|Tough to see very well from the picture, but the new tires were pretty nasty but in decent shape for 10 year old wheels.|
This weekend LKQ (similar to Bob's post about Pick N Pull a few weeks back) was having a 50% off sale, so I woke up early on a Saturday (again) and got up to Greenville to snag a full set of wheels for about $100. Big thanks to Big Kyle for scouting the lot Friday before the sale started to make sure there were wheels in stock before I made the trip.
|The tires were BAD. Real BAD. Luckily that saved me money since I was putting my good tires on.|
|Fresh and clean Focus wheel will dry for a bit and then have some good tires mounted.|
