Hello all,
My wife just picked up a 2018 EcoSport Titanium. So far its ok except the TPMS light went on within 30 miles. Tires were all at 32 to 34 psi.Tire sticker on the door says 36psi front and rear. Inflated them to 36psi at a Belle Tire. Light came on again 10 miles later. Made it home checked with my gauges and pressures were anywhere from 34-39psi. I figured out there was a way on the dash to see individual tire psi and it confirmed my gauges reading. I reset all pressures to 36psi base on the readings on the instrument cluster. About to go out for a ride today and see if it stays ok.
Lastly, we HATE the 50 series tires/ride in the Titanium. 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 tell 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.

Welcome to the forum.

I suggest you play around with the tire rack wheel/tire simulator tool, odds are you will find a set or at least specific dimensions that will work.
Other wheel/tire vendors should have similar tools, even some wheel makers, Vossen could be one of them.

If you can find them for a good price then it will be worth the move but IMO you can find nicer authentic wheels for the same price if you know where to look.

I was going to use some 15" Ford steel OEM rims/tires for spares but the 15" won't fit over the brake calibre. In fact, it's a pretty tight fit for the 16" rims.
