Rim Sizes.

Hi all, first post so here goes. I am researching new tyres for my 2008 1.8 Zetec and am trying to find out the size of the tyres that the vehicle was originally fitted with, but, i dont seem to be able to find the information any where! Can any one tell me, what size the original rims are and what size the tyres should be? Thanks, Paul.

If it's a Zetec, it should have 16" alloys as standard with 7"J rims. The standard tyre size for that rim is 205/55X16. If you are wondering about Winter tyres for later in the year, the 16" X 6 1/2 J steel rims from a Mondeo fit perfectly and also take a 205/55X16 tyres. I got mine from Mondeo Spares in Stoke on Trent Ford Spares - Genuine Ford Parts - Mondeo Spares Ltd for 23 a corner, and a brand new set of Mondeo trims off Ebay for 30. Here's a pic of the car taken last year just after fitting the winter wheels. Never did get any snow worth talkin about though!! LOL!
