205 does seem kinda skinny for 197 HP and 214 lbs of torque.

It does... until you look back and realize the Neon SRT-4 had the same size tire, and in 04-05 had 230 hp and 250ftlbs. First gear was unusable through hard acceleration. When i get my Fiesta ST i shall be upgrading to 225 Dunlop Star Spec IIs. then steelys for winter use. :thumb:

Technically it's a "full sized spare" in terms of width and usability. Most sub-compacts have 185 width tires as standard. Not to mention, it is H rated, so you can actually drive on it for a while at all legal speeds (but your axles would probably hate you). A doughnut would be like 135/50R17 or something that's appropriate on a Model T... with an 80 KPH and really short life.

Same-sized spare has been lamented by some Focus ST owners as the cause of their uneven rear floor bed. Hopefully the bed on the Fiesta ST lies flat.
