Does anyone know the tire size that comes on the standard 17" Hybrid wheels?
I have seen it as both 225/50/17 and 235/50/17 on Fords website. Tire Rack has
it listed as 235 but my gut feeling is that it is probably the 225's. Anyone know for
sure? I'm looking at getting winter tires & wheels before my car is delivered. Thanks

225's would be better in the snow anyways.

16's might be cheaper. You don't have to get the exact same size tire as the OEM tire - either of those sizes will work for winter tires but 225 would probably be better.

I'm just trying to get close to the diameter of the stock tire. There is a .4-.5"
difference between the two and the winter tire options would be alittle different.

Excellent question, scott029. Based on this photo of a production 2013 Fusion Hybrid SE at Ford of Kirkland (Kirkland, Washington), the standard OE tire for the hybrid model is Michelin Energy Saver AS, size 225/50R17 93V. The non-hybrid Fusion is also equipped with Michelin Energy Saver AS tires when 17" wheels are specified, but the size is 235/50R17 96H.

Thanks for the info. I just ordered Continental Extreme Winter Contacts, size 215/55/17 for winter
driving. I'm putting them on the stock wheels and putting the LRR 225/50/17 Michelins on a set of
TSW hyper silver Willows, 17X8 offset +40.

Do we know any information on bolt pattern/wheel offset/bore size? Reason I ask is according to alloyguide.com, the previous gen of the Mondeo (which the new Fusion is now in the same family, correct?) is listed as having 5x108 bolt pattern, 35-45 offset and a bore size of 63.4 mm. That puts it almost identical the Lincoln LS of 5x108 bolt pattern, 45 offset and 63.6 bore. I actually have a 1 year old set of altimax arctics on the 16 in rims for my LS right now. Would be amazing if I could just keep those and use for my winter set. I could care less if it has a Lincoln badge on the rims. And I don't believe .2mm difference in bore will be an issue (will it?). The only thing I may need to get is some TPMS so I don't get that warning light.

Am I wrong for thinking that would work, as long as those wheel specs for the Fusion are the same as last gen Mondeo's?

I have seen 5 x 114.3mm bolt pattern on a few aftermarket websites (Rimsntires etc.). That is what I ordered
so hopefully that is the size. I will run to the local dealer tomorrow with my metric ruler & find out for sure.
I did just notice Tire Rack doesn't have it listed yet. The sites are showing 40 to 45 offset.

I just measured a '13 Fusion SE and the wheel bolt pattern is 5 x 108mm. I just cancelled my wheel order
and I think I'll wait til the aftermarket manufacturer has the hub measurements so I get the correct
centering rings.

That's good to know. I'm looking at getting a set of snow tires for my new ride. This is useful to know when ordering the rims.

Thanks!

I'm really hoping the offset and hub bore are what I listed above, because then I could use my current spare set of rims for my LS as my winter set for the fusion as well.

I just talked to a wheel dealer. He said if the new Fusions were 5 X 108 that the bore size would be 63.4mm, same size as the Focus.

Actually the Michelin Energy Saver AS (on the 17" wheels) is a much better tire than
the Goodyear Eagle LS2 (on the 18" wheels). Check out Tire Racks surveys.

http://www.tirerack....odel=Eagle LS-2

http://www.tirerack....nergy Saver A/S

No comparison! Besides beating the Goodyear in every catagory, the Michelin is a Low rolling resistance tire,
the Goodyear is not.
