It should. Those are awesome wheels, though a bit heavy. I think the offset for the oem st rims are 47, that's the only grain of doubt for me, but 42 fits fine on the normal Fiesta...

I found a guy in England with a S1600 Fiesta (performance model prior to the ST) with 17" x 8" Tarmacs. The car looks fantastic! There isn't a problem with running a 17" x 8" Tarmac on the ST based on what I have now seen online. The wheels do stick out further than stock, which is good since I think the OE wheels always look like they are too far in. If you are on Instagram, look up user Photos_By_Wilkins to see his Fiesta with the Tarmacs.

It has to be 42, which would stick out about 3/4" more than stock while the 35 would stick out 1"+.

I really need to examine how much clearance there is from the rim to the strut because changing the scrub radius on a fwd strut front suspension is not the smartest thing to do.

The easy way to make sure you don't change that is maintain the stock wheel offset or ET measurement, but if you do that and go wider, the inside of the rim is going to get closer to the strut body.

Wheel spacers essentially reduce your wheel's ET measurement and change your scrub radius so they aren't some kind of free lunch.
