I want to customize my 2013 Ford Flex SE. I want to put taller and wider tires on it. What can I safely do?
Hi,Curt.Yes,You can do some customize to improve the performance of your car,So,Can you tell me what you tire size now?I can give you a best choice.
I was looking at the specs you list for the factory 20 inch rim for a 2014 Ford Flex Limited Ecoboost and it appears most of the information is correct, but the offset of my factory polished aluminum rims is +39mm, not the +46mm which looks like a copy/paste error from the 19 inch size. I can send a picture of the rims inside and out if needed for verification.
I WAS LOOKING TO REPLACE THE STOCK 20" RIMS, TIRE SIZE 255/45/20, ON MY 2013 FORD FLEX LIMITED. AND WAS TOLD THAT THE LUG PATTERN WAS 5X1.5. SO I PURCHASED THE WHEELS THAT HAD THE 5X1.5 BOLT PATTERN.**WHAT THE HELL IS 5X114.3 AND WHY DID FORD GO THIS SIZE. SO WE HAVE TO BUY FROM FORD?
neil. 5x114.3mm is the metric equivalent of 5x4.5 inches which is what the Flex uses. it is a very common bolt pattern.
I currently have (P235/60 R18) Michelin tires & rims on my 2009 Ford Flex. I would like to replace them with ( P245/65 R17) Bridgestone tires & rims, looking to save a few bucks on the exchange. Will the Flex be able to match the size?
U put 18 inch on you 2009 flex? I keep being told I must stay with 20 inch
265/35/22 offset +35rim size 22x8.5 squrewill this fit my ford flex 2013
Hi,Jerry,The factory rims offset of Flex is 50mm.35mm is too small.And For the tire,it is ok.
I want to put other rims on my 2009 Ford Flex but everyone is saying I have to go with 20 inch rims I can not use my 19 inch rims.... is this true?
I have a stock 2011 Ford Flex FWD SE 235/60/R17. How big can I go for better performance without rubbing or clearance issues?
Hi,Nick,Normally,The stock tire is a good choice,If you don't want to modify the wheels or update it,you can use stock wheels and tires.
Ok, but that did not answer my question. I want to keep the same wheel, but increase the tire size. How big can I go on the tire size, without clearance or rubbing issues?
Hi there, I have a 2012 Titanium Ecoboost Ford Flex. The stock rims are 20" rims. I am looking to purchase 18" rims for winter rims to mount a set of 235/60/R18 winter-specific tires on. Can I use a rim size of R18 X 8" with a 40mm offset? It looks like the Ford website recommends a 39mm offset, and to not deviate too far from the 39mm, but would the one extra mm be ok? Also, do I need to confirm that the rims I buy have the "J" flange type? Thank you!!Melanie
Hi,Melanie Perrin,The offset is OK.it is compatible.For the 18'' tires,You also need to confirm whether it is compatible.You can show your current 20'' tire size,I can help you.And for the "J" flange type,Don't worry about it.This type is widely used.
oops, one more question for my 2012 Titanium Ecoboost Ford Flex, what if the rim measures 18" X 7", offset of 39mm, bolt pattern of 5X114.3? Could this work on my vehicle? And same question as above, do I need to confirm that the rim has a "J" flange type? Thanks! Melanie
Hi,Melanie Perrin,Yes,this 18*7'' rims is also ok.
