Zach, an involved member of the Ford Fiesta ST enthusiast community, FiestaSTForum.com, wanted something to set his Fiesta ST apart from the other Fiestas on the road. While the Fiesta ST‘s unique front and rear bumper fascias give it a sporty edge, the factory wheels leave something to be desired – and thanks to the Fiesta’s 4×4.25″ lug pattern, finding wheels can be a challenge. That was until he stumbled across ESM Wheels‘ wheel gallery and knew he’d found what he was looking for. Stylish and sexily styled, ESM-004 Wheels For Fiesta ST are available in the Fiesta’s 4x108mm lug pattern – and after checking a few things to ensure he’d have clearance, pulled the trigger and ordered a set.
Finding wheels for the Fiesta ST and Focus ST can be challenging, due to the rare #x108mm bolt patterns used. Running 17×8″s front and rear, the setup is a full inch wider than stock, but still just narrowly fits the Fiesta’s wheel arch blisters.
The stepped lip and sporting spoke design gives the Fiesta ST a more refined look than the factory 5-spoke Fiesta ST wheels.
The stock 17×7 wheels wear 205/40ZR17 tires, stepping up to 17×8 provides room for that beautiful polished stepped lip and some users have gone as wide as 225-series tires without issues, 17×8 being on the wider end of things. ESM-004 wheels are also available in 17×9 width, but a wheel and tire combination this wide may require spacers or rolling the fenders.
Be sure to check out the rest of the gallery. If you’re interested in a set of wheels for your Fiesta ST or Ford Focus ST, we invite you to talk to the Ford ST specialists like the Mod Experts at ModBargains- give us a call at 714-582-3330 or chat live at ModBargains.com
