Ford wheels
#1
Hi guys, I've seen a set of ford wheels I like but what do I need to fit them?

You would need to find out if they have the same stud pattern, PCD and offset.

You can buy hub adapters that have a different stud pattern on them that bolt to your hubs and the wheel bolts onto the adaptor.

Try to get the offset as close to your original wheels as possible because going drastically + or - will upset the geometry of the suspension.
Drastic changes to offset can create torque steer (during heavy acceleration the steering may pull to one side) and bump steer (caused by bumps in the track interacting with improper length or angle of your suspension and steering linkages which means wheels steer themselves without input from the steering wheel).

As for stud adapters and excessive wheel spacers (more than 10mm), I would never advise going down that route and your insurance company probably wouldn't be too happy either and probably wouldn't pay out in the event of an accident.
