Mercedes is same bolt pattern but they use a 12mm stud/bolt so the holes need to be enlarged to 9/16" (14.28mm) for your 14mm stud/bolts.
This is not an exact fit but I have run them and it works dandy and the turbine wheels look great in addition to being about 1" wider so I can use lower profile passenger radials instead of the skinny reinforced ones.

SOURCE: Will different tire sizes work?

Hello Linton...the used tires should work if they are 14 inch....Check for proper clearance... They will be a little taller than the ones that came on your escort.
Your speedometer will not be accurate with the taller tires, it will be a few MPH's off...just a reminder so you wont get a ticket.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

Check the clearance with your current tires. Turn your wheels as far as they will go and measure the gap between the rim and frame. Then measure the inside offset from your regular rims and subtract that from the inside offset on the mags.Compare that to the gap between your current rim and frame. If it is the same or bigger, the new rims will likely hit.
The best way to know for sure is to mount one rim and turn the wheel and see what happens. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 GOLF GTI THE BEST TIRE SIZE FOR 17'' RIMS???

I would advise you to leave both sides with 235 45 17 this tire size would provide you with better handling and improved comfort also tires wil be more protected of suffering damage in the sidewalls caused by bumps and potholes just remember to keep them inflated at 38 +/- 2 psi.

SOURCE: What tires can fit a 1999 ford expedition xlt

I believe it will fit. If you go to DiscountTires.com you can use their site for alternate tire sizes. Especially handy is the feature which shows you the Speedometer error for different size tires. The site will also show you recommended and popular substitute tire and wheel sizes.

The 1999 model had a 265/65/17 as an alternative. You may want to ask the Tire store you intend to use if they can reconfigure your Speedo to be accurate. Some of the Fords can be done electrically without changing Speedo gears.

I did something similar by going from a "60" series to a "65" series in the same width. On my Grand Marquis, I gained 5% mileage improvement, but have to watch Speedo until I get it reconfigured. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

The 13" size is for the set of rims. The dimension is 13×5.5J so the tyre size is the issue here. I don't want my fenders to be in the way when fully turning or driving over speed humps.


If you want to protect your car wheels, then you have to use wheel spacers & adapters for it. Most probably I used wheel spacers for my wheel from customadeonly.com.

What rim size for a 215/55/16 tyre? I currently have all 4 tyres on as-supplied alloy wheels, each December I change my fronts for winter tyres, for which the tyre shop make a charge. I am thinking about...


16 is the rim size and most modern ones will take 215 tyre. Of more concern is the PCD (which dictates how holes line up) would suggest a trip to a breakers and get 4 from any VW Passat (or other) of similar age

I HAVE A 2008 FORD ESCAPE WITH 17'' RIMS AND WAS WONDERING IF 17'' RIMS FROM A CHRYSLER 300 WILL FIT?


Due to different manufacturers (Ford and Chrysler) they will not fit even though they are both 17". The bolt pattern, wheel center opening, back of the wheel dimensions to allow room for brake calipers, etc would be different.

Other than VW, not many. May not be worth the troble of trying to see if any other foreign cars use the same size/design rims.

What size brakes does my passat have with 17 inch rims. also what type of upgrade rotors and pads would work


size of wheels is not an issue. Use standard B5 VW Passat pads and rotors if needed.

I've found that Original VW brakes last the longest.
