Need to get a set of OEM Ford wheels, 15" or 16" for winter /pot hole tires.

We HATE the way the 50 series tires/ride in the Titanium on our horible pot hole riddled Michigan roads. I'm looking into a smaller rim / taller tire option.
Here in Michigan it is pot hole season and wheels are getting tore up left and right.
We need a set of 16" (15" if the'll clear the brakes) for taller side wall winter tires and keep the 17" wheels for summer.
Any recommendations on nice looking OEM ford wheels in 15 or 16" That will fit the Ecosport? I'm thinking some Fiesta wheels.

Best place to go its probably the wreckers/auto recycling to see what kinds of OEM sets they have on hand. Should save you a good bit of money and they can easily be refinished. I'm pretty sure that a bunch of Ford models have compatible wheels including the Fiesta, Escort and Focus.

My daughter just picked up her new 2018 SE. 16" rims came with the vehicle. I noticed that there was very little clearance between the inside of the OEM wheel that came with the vehicle and the brake caliber housing. I checked to see if a 15" Fiesta rim/tire would fit over the caliber. It would not. I then tried to install a 16" steel OEM Ford Rim with all the proper specs. It cleared the caliper... barely. I think there's just a wee bit more than 1/8" clearance with these rims I chose for the winter tires.


My other daughter and wife each have a 2018 SES on order. I've already got the rims and tires. These vehicles are coming with 17" rims but I'm using the same 16" rims for the winter tires. I'm praying that the brakes/caliper housing are identical to the SE model.


15" won't work on the USA 2018 Ecosport... at least not the SE or SES and Titanium models. I can't be sure about the S model...
