2014 Ford Fiesta ST with Axis Touring Cup Wheels 084 by Bryan Redeker BRGT350, on Flickr
P215/40 17 on an ST
For me, the P215/40 17 is the only way to go on the car. Wider and extra sidewall is a win-win in terms of footprint and rim protection. Plus, it looks more like a functional car instead of a tuner with ultra small sidewalls. I found the performance of the RE050A's to be very good, but the Direzza ZII is going to be much better. I ran Yokohama S-Drives for a week and did not notice too much of a performance degradation on the street. I expect track and autocross results to really show the RE050A's being better than the Yokes.
Joe, awesome pick for wheels and tires!
Good pick for wheels and tire, great look and they are excellent tires for around town and autocross. However, I am leaning toward Direzza ZII in a 225/45x16. Any thoughts from anyone on this?
