What I have are 7jx17 ET45 offset wheels now.
Have found a set of 6.5Jx16 ET40 wheels.
Bolt pattern on both is 5x114.3 - which the Ford spec pages tell me is correct for the 2011 Ford Escape I have.
I am new to this type of figuring and terrible at visualizing. The offset calculator tells me I will have 11mm MORE inside clearance(inside of wheel to strut housing) and the same outer clearance.(position of the outer edge of the wheel)
So - it looks like the wheels would fit OK.
Am I right in this assumption?
The new wheels are Chrysler Town & Country - so if they fit I am in good shape as the cost is just the tire mounting, wheels come to me for 'get them out of my garage'.
How to turn off all the blinking smilies???
