  3. Thanks spangenb! I got it figured out now, went into the dealership and spoke to the dealer principle and he just grabbed a set of standard Fiesta steel rims and tires and put them on to see if they fit. This is what they look like on.

    Looks great. Just double check there is enough brake clearance.

  10. Its actually pretty impressive what these cars will go through given their size and ground clearance!

    I am running the Cobb economy tune and getting right about 30 in combined driving. Mostly county roads. Colder weather gets a little worse, warmer a little better.

    I don't have that data. I went from summer tires, 93 octane gas, and the Cobb 93 tune to snow tires, 87 gas and the Cobb economy tune all at once. One thing is for sure: the econo tune removes the sensory reward for stomping on the gas pedal, so there's a lot less temptation to do things that hurt mpg. A lot of people on here will think I am crazy for running this car that way, but for a 4 season car in a place where we have real winter I think it's the perfect setup. It's a split personality car: sensible and reserved when you want it, manic at the push of a button.
