The problem is you do not have a range to choose from. there is only one model in 14inch and IMO 24K for the 1.6S alloys is expensive & i'm not sure if you can get them.

One more option is to go for the after market alloys without the dealer's knowledge and put back the steel rims when it goes in for service, this might sound wierd but i read this elsewhere in team-bhp. Anyways for the warranty part i will check with chennai ford tomorrow and tell you what they say here.

Libocta, there is not much risk involved on the warranty front. But do whatever gives you peace of mind.
That is important.

Man !! 215/55/17 ?? Those are HUGE !! I doubt they would even fit on the Fiesta 1.6S. And ride would be terrible as well.

Thats too much.Actual size for fiesta 1.6S is 15".17" is really big for that car.Go for 205/55/15 is the best one.
