Best Tyres for a Ford Fiesta

When it comes to enhancing the driving experience of your Ford Fiesta, getting the best mods is all well and good, but for particularly the ST180 model, selecting the right tyres is crucial. The Ford Fiesta ST180, equipped with a standard fitment of 205/40/17, demands high-quality tyres that not only match its performance capabilities but also complement its dynamic nature. Whether you’re navigating city streets or powering through a track day, the right set of tyres can profoundly influence the car’s responsiveness, safety, and driving pleasure.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through the top tyre choices for your Fiesta, divided into two categories: Road Tyres for everyday driving and Track Day Tyres for the racing enthusiasts.
