The reason I picked his car, is cos that is how I want mine to look when I get it in a few months. I've heard summit bad about puttin escos rims on a fez, but can't member wt it was. What is the problem wiv puttin em on? is it cos of the width or summit?

Right, first off you'll need coilovers to get them on. Next you'll need to do a hell of a lot of archwork to get them to fit aswell.

Then there's "the curse" :oooh:

Everyone who has put cossie rims on their Fiesta has had no end of problems with their car then. This is of course just speculation, but it has become known as the Cossie Rim Curse for a reason.

They do however look the absolute dogs danglies when on and done right :D

Cheers
