Default Ford Freestyle : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

My friend is looking to upgrade the 185/60 R15 on his new Ford Freestyle to a R16. Im guessing the right upgrade would be a 195/55 R16 or even a 205/55 R16, right?


The two wheels that he has shortlisted are:
  • MOMO Massimo
  • HRS H 594

The issue here is that the Massimo has an offset of 42 while the HRS has 40. I believe the 14" wheels that came with the Figos are of 5.5J 37.5 . Is the offset of Freestyle any different? Is the difference in the offset acceptable and if so, would the above mentioned rims would make the wheel narrow or wider?

The best upgrade would be the Figo Sport's 195/55 R15 size. It's the perfect match. The Freestyle has amazing balance - don't ruin it by oversizing the tyres. 205 would be too much for the power on tap.

There is already some firmness felt on low speed bumps. Stick to 15" wheels - 16s will lead to a noticeable compromise in ride quality.
