Changing My Steel Wheels For Ford Alloys

6 posts in this topic

Can i get away with changing my steel wheels 4 stud for a Ford Focus alloy wheels im sorry if this has been asked before but im getting conflicting information and hey as alloys are rare for these machines the info might help others.

ive got this spreadsheet that says yes!

Model Year PCD Offset Bore Cougar 98 – 02 4×108 35 to 45 63.4 Escort 81 – 90 4×108 35 to 45 63.4 Fiesta 83 to 01 4×108 35 to 45 63.4 Fiesta 02 on 4×108 35 to 45 63.4 Focus 98 on 4×108 35 to 45 63.4 Fusion 02 – on 4×108 35 to 45 63.4

But so far as i can see on Ebay it comes up with No with things like

offset? am i right in thinking this could bugger up my wheel bearings? as I am doing 500 miles a week i dont fancy changing bearings that quick

The wheels I am considering getting are this type any help much appreciated

Yes they will fit no problem. Both wheels are 4x108.

I have the standard 15" Fusion 3 alloys on mine atm. However I think 16" or even 17" would fill the arches better. The newer model has 16" alloys.

What size are the alloys you're looking at?

I believe they are 15" as they are fitted with 195/60/15 tyres same as mine so we shall see

Well a new problem has arisen (wheel nuts) of all things can you believe Ford want £11.50 per wheel nut for the "capped" version of the nut or £4 for "non capped " and most on Ebay are for non standard ford alloy wheels?? so my hunt is on i will let you know how i get on!

p.s. the focus and fusion nuts are the same ford part number for future reference.....

Hoorah sorted found some alloy wheel nuts on Amazon of all places!

word of advice watch out on Ebay as most state their wheel nuts are for "aftermarket wheels" not original ford alloys

always ask first!
