Aftermarket Wheels for 2010 Escape

Postby csonni - March 31st, 2015, 5:13 pm

I've been checking into some wheels to upgrade my 2010 Escape Limited. Found these Sacchi wheels which will require hub rings.

http://tires.canadiantire.ca/en/wheels/ ... e/1418680/

I've never used aftermarket wheels over all my years of driving. Driving out of Labrador require quite a bit of time on gravel roads with some washboard. With Lug Centric wheels, where does the weight actually fall- on the studs? Can plastic hug rings actually take the weight? Or, are hub rings only for entering the wheel? Or, am I better off trying to find an aftermarket Hub Centric wheel?

The search tools is your friend...

I've driven for a month without and a few with hub centric rings, my hub gap was huge and as long as the wheel is properly mounted and the lugs are witing spec youll be fine.

I guess there's various opinions on where the weight is the most. Some say as you, if the lugs are tightened to specs, that's where it's most important.

The force of a car braking would sheer off the wheel bolt if it sat on the threads, the hub centric ring simply help center the wheel so that lugs are properly seated.

All the hub centric rings are now plastic, obviously not designed for a load. I had to use them with my new wheels, no problems yet and have hit a few good pot holes.

I have my eyes on these Momo Corse Anthracite wheels. Some places don't list them for the Escape. Are some wheels not meant for SUV's? Here they are:

Any reason why such wheels shouldn't be put on an Escape?
I was looking at some Sacchi S62 262 HyperSilvers, but I like these better.

What are the exact specs? Bolt pattern, offset, backspacing, hub bore?
