Not sure this is relative, but we test fitted a 2005 Ford Thunderbird balloon spare on our 2020 Ford Transit Connect. Because the t-bird's spare has the same bolts patter (M14) and the came center bore (63.4) the spare mounted right up to the connect's front a rear hub. Note: If you're thinking of doing this, you can use the factory open end lugs or any budge acorn lugs to mount the spare on the van. This gives up the option to remove the very difficult spare removal from under the van and place the smaller/compact spare inside the van.
Update: just learn that my buddies van is not a 2020 TC LWB XLT which he claims uses the M12 x 1.5 lugs. Running the Vin shows that his van is actually a 2019 the last year Ford used the M12 lugs. So as of 2020 - current, Ford Now uses the M14 x 1.5 lugs on ALL Transit Connect and it's not model specific.
Thank you, very much for VIN check from your end. We made additional owner's manual check on our side twice.
Just wanted to update a couple of things here. Last we spoke as you'll see in my post below, we opted for the 16x7 Sparco "Terra" wheels on our 2015 Transit Connect & never had any issues with the handling or performance. In 2020 we traded the old 2015 TC for a new 2020 Transit Connect SWB XL 2.0L. This time around we test fitted a set of the 17'' x 7.5'' Voxx Capo wheels with an ET38 the wheels fit, but we're not please with the appearance. We'll be upgrading this setup to include a set of the 18 x 8 Voxx Capo wheels ET45. We'll report back with our findings once the mounting takes place. But I wanted to share this fact with others. The 2020 Transit Connect SWB Cargo van uses m14 x 1.5 lugs. While the transit Connect Passenger Wagon uses M12 x 1.5 lugs. If don't make the same mistake we did. We ordered a set of the M12 x 1.5 tuner lugs for our Voxx wheels and they didn't fit. So we returned the lugs and ordered the correct M14 x 1.5 tuner lugs as these fit perfectly. One other issue Make sure you order tuner lugs with a budge acorn style and NOT the straight socket style lugs as these would work themselves lose from the wheel and would not hold the Voxx wheels flush to the van's rotors.
Just got an email from Wheel-size.com informing me that they can not confirm my findings. How can this be when My van 2020 Ford transit Connect SWB XL 2.0L cargo van used the M14 x 1.5 lugs while our friend who lives just down the street who drives a 2018 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT 2.5L passenger van uses M12 x 1.5 lugs. What more confirmation does one need?
What is the correct bolt pattern for 2011 ford transit connect ? 5x108 , 5x114.3 Thank you
Hi,Darren,It is 5*108
True the bolt pattern is 5x108 But depending n the van your driving. you may need either the M12 x 1.5 (passenger van) or the M14 x 1.5 lugs (cargo van) as there are two differant version.
