What wheels can I use?

Have 04 Ex with 16” wheels. Want to put on 18”s. Can I use any of the 11-18 year wheels? Thanks!

I think the answer is No if you want to stick with factory.

Ford changed the wheel offset when they switched to front coil springs in 2005. Newer Ford rims will cause your tires to rub against suspension/steering components.

This is from memory so you may want to get 2nd opinion.

What he ^ said.


If you want to go to 18's you'll need to go aftermarket. No guarantee those will fit under your fenders, but lots of guys have put oversize tires on, but you'll at least get the right offset.
