Is there a sport wheel made by ford that has the same bolt patterns and spec is so what models this is to do with a potential cowboy mechanic and would really appreciate the help
Hi,Dan,You mean you want to find a set of sport wheels which share the same bolt patter and specs for Ford Transit-Connect?if so,Which car year for your car?
Yes and it is the 2006 6 model
Well here is what we ended finding out and doing. When we thought the stock steel wheels for the Ford Transit Connect were 48mm, In fact they are 50mm and had a mark right on the face of the wheel. We decided to have the 16x7 Sparco wheels with Maxxis 215/55R16 tires on the van. The center bore is 63.4mm and the sparco wheels required a wheel ring 73.1mm. Although I'm not please at the end result.. will will have to do for the time being. The reason I say this.. is that with the Sparco wheels being 7'' wide.. the 215/55r16's are being flexed out thus giving the van a lower profile. I was hoping to increase the size of the tire. So the largest size tire we could have put on the van is 25.8 anymore than this, the van would become sluggish and the tire would have rubbed in two places when turning.
Thank you so much for your information. We will update the website data
Thanks for allowing me to help with your data and I'm very sorry I sent you an error in the offset in the early stages of our searches. We never bothered to look at the face of the steel wheel which clearly says ET:50mm.. Otherwise we are liking this set up.. The van handles way better with the 7'' wheels. In the beginning we thought of making this van our overlander.. but now it's turning into a rally inspired microCargo concept.
