Hello,
Just bought myself a 2015 EcoSport 1.0 EcoBoost this weekend.
Looking to replace the silver wheels with some black/grey ones.
Car itself is grey,just want to make it look s bit more sporty.
Suggestions?
Would like to keep to Ford parts.......can you replace 16” wheels with 17” ones?
Thanks,
Gareth.

Hi and welcome Bluesman74 :D

I know the modern thing is dark wheels on cars, but my own thoughts are for safety, bright wheels are better, usually silver alloys, as these can be seen side on easier by other road users, especially if your car paint is dark. But that's just my opinion.

As for my own Ecosport 2019, it is a base model and never really like the colour of the factory fitted wheels for that trim, as they are too dark for me, but the cheaper car price was what made me buy the car. Got a quote to get the wheels powder coated painted silver and it was nearly £80 a wheel, so have not got round to it yet, as looking for a better price.

17" wheels.....
You can change to 17" wheels if you keep rolling radius the same, so it does not affect your speedometer. There are quite a few threads on the subject, if you type in the search box at the top..... 17" wheels
