Confirmed: Euro Fiesta has same specs as US Focus

I was able to do a direct swap of wheels and tires from my 2006 focus onto the 2009 Euro Ford Fiesta.

Here's the proof:

After finally watching all the video...
"I drove the snot of this thing".
^^^Nice!

Did you happen to get the specs from the stock Fiesta wheels when you pulled em off?
Height/Width?
But, more importantly, offset?
Look for "ET" followed by a number.
EX: ET49 would mean an offset of 49mm



Just curious. Thanks.

I tried checking for that info when it was still on the car, but the labels were different than US wheels, and I couldn't make sense of it. I will try and check again.

I will say they appear to have the same offset and backspacing of the wheels on my Focus, but I suppose there could be minor variation.

Appreciate the comeback.
Thanks for checking!

It just figures that the numbers (or coding) are all different...
Heaven forbid something was standardized between the nations.

Tires always make a difference.

The cars sold here will probably get all-seasons.

Hopefully the Conti's would be an option ... that would be nice. I miss my conti's when I first bought my SVT.
