if it had those wheels on it when you took it in, lucky they are repairing it, most dealers would tell you that the warranty is invalid due to the large wheels putting extra strain on the gear box ;) happened to my friend with new fiesta.

that shouldent rely matter about the wheels i meen they have the 1.2 active stripes and they have alloys on them and side skirts wich is a tad heveyer. and i would think that the 5 door 1 would way as much as the extra wate on the wheels.

But the new grs airintake....... "opens the bonit"....... "wtf is that masive blue thing......"

It's not necessarily the weight of the wheels causing concern.
It's the width of the wheel which ultimately puts more strain on the driveshaft. The active sport wheels are lighter and not as wide as GrandeJ's.

ah yes cos j's are 215/40/17 hmmm intresting, it would be so bad if the wate was the problem cos it would show how bad the gear box or drive train was if thats all it takes for it to fail!

i meen for crist sake what if you had rely fat frends!

The 1.2 isn't designed for wide heavy wheels, it's the same with most small cars.
