What size tires did you install?
Does the 40mm offset along with the tire width sit completely within the fender/wheel well?

The 40mm sits really well with the fender. It will be perfect once I get around to lowering it. Ride quality has not changed from 17s to 18s. The size tires I installed are 255/45/R18.

I just found this thread this evening as I have been reading a lot in this forum. I really like these rims and how they look on your car. That was my one area of this vehicle I hated... The wheels. I think they could have done a lot better in the design... 2015's have a 10 spoke 17" wheel that is similar to the 19" H spoke available on the regular Titanium Fusions. I am not sure why Ford took the lazy way out and figured people in all levels of the Hybrids would be happy with one rim choice.

I really like this wheel though... Looks incredible! Did you have to buy New Tire Sensors for the wheels to register the Tire Pressure Sensors..?? If you don't mind me asking, how much was one wheel with the tire you chose... Or how much were they all if easier..? I had checked with my parts department today actually as I was looking to buy the 19" H-Spoke for my Energi because I hate the wheels on there and got a price for the rims only of $1,800.00 employee cost. There is a $50.00 core charge apparently for (4) rims to be returned back to Ford as well. That price does not include the Tire Pressure Sensors he said he thought were around $75.00 a piece. It definitely did not include tires either... WOW! Wasn't planning on that... lol

Are you lowering your car as a preference or necessity for these wheels..?? Just curious. I don't want to get into all that but definitely like the "Upgrade" on my wheels for sure!

You ever get around to lowering your car Chance?
I finally pulled the trigger on wheels, and ordered 18" Niche Targa Anthrecite (M129) wheels. Am really curious to see how the car looks lowered. Now the hard part...waiting for the wheels to be delivered!

Vendor sent me the wrong bolt pattern... Had to re-order and looks like I'll be on M130's too. The M129s were on back order.

Was wondering if you saw any problems in the Energi after changing the wheel size.  I had my wheel changed when I got my car and the dealership had me sign a bunch of waivers recommending me not to do it.

No issues whatsoever. Did see the MPG drop a little. I'm guessing the dealership just wants an excuse to get out of warranty repairs if they come up.

Fusion Hybrid and Fusion 2.0 Ecoboost AWD have similar weights. Our Fusion Energi cars have 300lbs more weight... I called Eibach, H&R, and Steeda. They all told me no....


Those wheels like great!

I have the H&R's in my car and it looks and rides great!

Did adding the rims have any effect on the overall mileage or Energi battery charge?

I never got around to lowering my car.. I actually ended up switching cars from the 2013 into a 2015. I did keep the wheels though. I am currently building a custom set of headlights, bought LED fogs, and the lighting firm carbon fiber grille.. So once I recoup from that I want to look into getting coilovers. Every Energi/Hybrid Ive seen rakes in the back and that would bother the heck out of me.

I did see a mile or two drop in the EV range, but nothing drastic. I used the OEM TPMS whenever they installed the wheels.

I have the stock 17's- hate 'em.  I bought some Velox black rims- doesn't look right- the wheels look too small.  Then I bought 20's.  Nobody will install them- say they are too big.  Should I go with 19's?  18's?  What tires?  Someone recommended 19" in the back, 18" in the front to give it a sportier look.  Thoughts?
