    I don't have the exact info for this year but previous years are all a positive offset. Here is a diagram for figuring out the offset though. The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. Sorry I couldn't find a number for you. I would call a ford dealer on it.

Will a13in 4-100 rim off a honda fit on a 2005 hyundai accent


The bolt pattern may be the same (Hyundai accent uses 4 x 100 bolt pattern) but the wheel centre bore size and wheel offset are likely to be different. There may also be brake clearance issues. The only effective way to deal with this is to check some of the basic wheel specs and then do a test fit on the car. If the wheel's centre bore size is too small for the Hyundai hub you won't even need to do a test fit as the wheel cannot be used.



1. Center Bore

If the Honda wheel has the same or a larger centre bore size then they will fit on the hub but if larger you will need hub rings to fill the gap between the centre bore and the hub. If you do not fit the hub centric rings you will get vibrations (like an out of balance wheel gives you) as the wheel will not be properly centred on the hub.



If the Honda wheel has a smaller centre bore then it will not fit over the Hyundai hub and you cannot use it.



2. Brake Caliper Clearance

Manufacturers design their stock wheels to clear the size of brake calipers they use but sometimes these clearances are very small.

The Honda wheel may or may not clear the brake calipers when you bolt it on, (which is primarily a factor of both wheel and brake design), and in that event you cannot use it.



3. Offset

The Honda and Hyundai stock wheels will have different offsets.

If the Honda wheel has a much higher offset measurement it may not have sufficient clearance on the inside of the wheel well because the higher offsets places the wheel rim further inside the wheel well.

If the Honda wheel has a much lower offset, this places the wheel rim further to the outside of the vehicle. This is less of an issue unless the tires hit the guards when you get a great deal of suspension movement or the tyres extend out beyond the guards which is illegal.

Specs on 2002 jeep grand cherokee alloy wheels R16


the tires & rims that come with your vehicle are designed to meet all the specs of your vehicle. When you change sizes and styles, you then need to get the computer re programmed with the tire changes you have made. It affects your speedometer, your transfer case, your fuel (mpg) and the performance of the engine to the wheals. Also you can damage your transmission and rear end. So my advise is to buy a high end tire that meets origional specs. Look at the Toyo's they are great tires, great performance and no alterations are needed. Pluss they look cool as hell so try that
http://www.treadepot.com/
check this site out and call them, they have better deals on the phone and have fricking great prices on tires.

Let me know how it goes.
