    225/55/17 tires; Will they fit?

    I bought a 2010 TC last year and spent the summer heavily modifying the interior into the ultimate hippie van. This spring, it's time for the outside to get it's treatment. I purchased four 17" Ford Focus rims from a seller on eBay for $300 with the TPMS still attached. Now it's time to shop for tires. I've read every article posted on here about sizes and saw one that mentioned 225/50/17 tires. It seems like 225/55/17 in the load range needed are much more plentiful. Will the slight extra size aspect cause problems? I'd hate to spend the money just to find out that they rub on something. Excellent site, by the way. Lots of great info to be had.
  2. Picked up my 2014 Transit Connect Wagon a couple of weeks ago and now I'm looking to get a winter wheel/tire package for the long Michigan winters. Surprisingly I'm having trouble finding a place that will sell me wheels. I tried both tirerack.com and belle tire which is a local store I have used successfully in the past. Both places said that they don't have any wheels that will fit the 2014 Transit Connect. I've done some research and I think the 2014 Transit Connect and the 2014 Focus use the same size wheels: 16" x 6.5" 50 mm offset/5.75" Backspacing 5 x 108" stud pattern same center bore (wrote down the number but can't find the sheet). So in terms of packaging and clearance I think I could buy any 16" wheel that fits on a 2014 Focus. So I'm confused as to why both tirerack and belle tire say they don't have a wheel that fits my car. The TC is in their system since it will bring up tires that are compatible, just not any wheels. Has anyone bought any aftermarket wheels for their 2014 Transit Connect? Right now the only place that will confirm a compatible wheel/tire/TPMS is the dealership which will sell me a set of crappy and heavy OEM steel wheels + Michelin Ice-Xi3 + the Ford TPMS system for $1800. If I pick a nice set of what I think are compatible alloy wheels on tirerack.com along with the Michelins and a TPMS system it comes out to $1150. I'm having trouble spending $650 more to get a pair of steel wheels instead of a nice pair of much ligher alloy wheels. I'm hesitant to buy a focus set on the chance that somehow my info on the wheel size is wrong. Another consideration is that the Transit Connect is a much heavier vehicle compared to the Focus (at least 1000 lbs heavier). Wheels must have a weight rating so maybe its possible that none of these two stores actually have an alloy wheel that can handle the much heavier vehicle. Anyone have any history or info in on any of this? Thanks. John
  3. We still have these factory wheels and tires and I've contacted several bloggers & UTZ potato chips in an effort to get what ever I can for these wheels. Bloggers like Tiny Van Travels and Tessa Mendez But just so happen Iw as at the store the other morning where I spotted a Ford Transit Connect UTZ delivery van.. I sent word to UTZ in an effort to see if they needed these factory wheels/tires. The UTZ rep was very helpful and sent word to their maintenance department. As of yet I've not heard back from any of these possible candidates. So here's what I'm willing to do. If you live near MD/PA/VA/DE/WV We're willing to sell these at $400.00 or if you have a blog site which document your North American travels, we'll sell them to you at a reduced price of just $275.00 just as long as you connect with on one (or more) of our travel community/pages and meet us on the road for the exchange. Our next exchange could take place as soon as this weekend, we might be looking at a short trip to North Carolina. The only other exchange would take place the 1st or 2nd week in Sept at or near the MD/PA line. To schedule an exchange, connect with one of our travel profiles and of course forward your blog site for verification.
  4. I bought my 2013 new & switched to alum. alloys with Real snows the first month, about 1,000 miles . Had planned on swapping back & forth by season. Soooo happy with Real snows in mud & winter, gonna run them year round. Tell me what you need, all 4, or may sell by each ? The shipping costs will be the issue. Tom @ ( 262 ) 613-2527 only 8 AM till 8 PM CST, seven days a week.... North of Milwaukee on I-43 ... will make 2 nd listing for the wheel covers , make offers as there are many ways this could work. Will only meet or travel if payment or PayPal first. Meeting will be @ some fire or police station parking lot only......http://www.TomMenzel.com.....http://www.MenzelEngineering.com
  5. (4) 18x8 Rotiform VCE monoblocks with 205/40/18 tires 5x108 and HUBCENTRIC TO OUR VANS (no rings) LOCATED: RICHMOND, VA See ad for photos FOR WEAR/TEAR, TREAD DEPTH, AND SHINE! Light curb rash on one, and a small rock ding in the other, but otherwise in great shape with plenty of life left on tires. Looking into a house but extremely short on funds, so of course the extras go (along with the motorcycles :( ) I AM WILLING TO SHIP AT BUYERS EXPENSE, AND EVEN WILLING TO DRIVE THEM WITHIN A REASONABLE DISTANCE UPON NEGOTIATION.

  6. Hi all, Sorry if this is against the rules but I just posted a wheel question in the wheel/tire forum but thought it would also be good to posted it in the 2014 Transit Connect forum as well as it is specific to the 2014. Here was the post: Picked up my 2014 Transit Connect Wagon a couple of weeks ago and now I'm looking to get a winter wheel/tire package for the long Michigan winters.

    From the album: DB-Transit

    General Grabber AT2s 205/75r15 on Alcoa aluminum rims from my FX4 Ranger. Used adapters to correct the bolt pattern. There is a bit of rubbing on the plastic fender flare, but I am not against a bit of trimming.

    Volvo S40 16 inch wheels

    Bought a couple sets of 2004.5 - 2005 16 inch volvo S40 16 inch rims. Center bore and offset is perfect for the Ford Transit Connect. Winter set with almost new Hankook I-Pike 215/55 97 tires. Summer set with a tire to be chosen at a later date.
