If you buy not an original rim, choose 70.5mm of central bore and 114.3mm diameter of placing nuts. Ford Explorer has 245/65 R17 size of tires which suits original rims. One more important characteristics of Explorer rims is size of nuts 12mm*1.5" and overall amount of 5 nuts per one wheel. The most important figure for a driver is 17" rim dimension and also 8" width of the rim. 4.0 has offset of the wheel at 45mm. If you change rim and rubber types, Ford Explorer can change its temper.

  • Huge and beautiful rims at 17" diameter add respect to Ford Explorer.

  • It’s hard to imagine 4.0 with other wheels without 8" width and 45mm of offset.

  • Ford’s wheels with 17" diameter survive long time, so Explorer won’t need any changes.

  • By the wheels of 15" diameter Ford Explorer feels great on the road.

  • One can’t imagine Ford Explorer with other but 15" diameter of rims.

  • Great stability is also achieved by 6" wide wheels and right offset of 38mm.

You’ll need more petrol for driving 4.0i if you install rims above 15" in diameter. Visit the service station to plan different from 12mm*1.5" nuts installation or using rims with other than 45mm offset. By changing pay attention to 5 number of nuts and 70.5mm bore diameter for Explorer wheels. You can keep Ford 4.0 safe enough by choosing 17" diameter wheels of original production.
