I was looking up information for a friend on what junkyard wheels would fit his 02 CRV and stumbled on this. It has the lug patterns and center bore sizes for almost every vehicle ever made.

^The problem with that one is they don't give the actual factory offsets. All it basically says is if its a FWD or RWD offset which is easy enough to determine.

ok so according to this, Interga rims are 2mm larger centre bore than the Escort's.

I'm going to assume it's not safe to drive that way, is it?

What do I need to do to make it fit? a 2mm thick sleeve to fill the gap?

Any help appreciated.

you wont need the inserts. i work for a tire shop most rims are lug centered meaning when the lugs are tightened it puts the wheel dead center. now some after market rims are hub centric meaning you would need the insert to keep the rim dead center on the hub.

As long as you torque the lugs with the car jacked up then it doesn't matter if you have a hub-centric center bore or not. All escorts have taper-seat lugs so the wheels will center themselves as long as there's no weight on them.

You really need the offsets. I had a 88 E-150 with ghetto wide rims. It tracked straight, but felt like slightest wrong wiggle would send it into 'solo car spin out' or into the wall. Scary over 65mph.

Also, be careful of how much offset you go with. I race Dodge Intrepids, FWD with Ford Crown Vic. RWD wheels. Wider stance. Problem is, puts ALOT of strain on the hubs. After right front hub broke 3 times, went back to stock wheels. Ain't fun having your own tire pass you in a race...

Probably fun for most of the spectators (and competition) though. ;)

thanks for the extra input,

I can't find 2mm rings anyway, most are much thicker for aftermarket rims.
Fine point; if the bore is 2mm larger, then you couldn't use a 2mm thick ring anyways; you'd need a 1mm thick ring........... so tho you're not planning it anyways, I just wanted to point that out in case ya'll get into something else like that that requires a precise fit; the math will get us, ha.

Good luck,

LarryR
