I have just purchesed some new wheels for my c max as I am putting it back on the road after it been sorned since june. I looked and found a great deal of ford alloys for sale on ebay for a good price. I decided to go for some after market wolfrace wheels in black as the ford wheels were from the new range and they were 235 50 r 17 the wheels I have now are 205 55 r 16 and the wheels I just brought are 205 50 r17. I would have a look on ebay I was about to buy a set of 17" mondeo alloys the st ones for £200 but they were two wide

Here's a couple of picture of my old Focus CC3

Lowered 30mm with Eibach springs
255-30-19 on the front and 265-30-19 on the rears. Still had no trouble getting full lock without rubbing on the inner wing or the wheel arch

Dont see why not.

Just out of intrest and to help you further, what size rubber was on your car when you got it or whatwas on it when it was new? If you let me know then i can tell you if your chosen tyre size will alter the speedo reading too much

I had when I got it 205/55 R16<actinic:prices prod_ref="673" retail_price_prompt="Price:">

I then changed to 205 50 r 17

I was just looking at some kuga wheels and mondeo wheels both are 17 but the tyres are 235 45 r 17

sorry about the lettering it has gone mad

thats the width of the wheel in inches

The ones on my CC were 9.5

235/45/17 are pretty much spot on and im sure they'd fit with no issues. They'd give your speedo an error reading of about 1% and thats just not worth worrying about. If the 235's are already on the wheels i suggest putting at least one of them on the front and then steering from lock to lock to make sure all is well, but as i said, i doubt you'll have a problem.... you'd probably be ok if it was lowered too

The above will give you a tyre size calculator.

Where it says OLD TYRE SIZE you need to put in the tyre size that your vehicle had from new (check owners hanbook if you bought car 2nd hand)

New tyre size: The tyres you are thinking about using. Anything less than a 3% difference is fine, you should be able to get it less than 2% pretty easy. Hope this helps
