Will Ford Rims Fit a Mazda?

Updated April 17, 2017

Rims for automobiles manufactured by Ford Motor Company will fit automobiles manufactured by Mazda. People who want to switch rims from cars made by one automaker to cars made by another must match the bolt pattern -- the number of bolts found on the wheel hub -- and the offset rating, which is the distance from the hub's mounting area to the centre of the wheel.

Ford Mustang

The bolt pattern of a 2005 Ford Mustang is five by 114.3, with a high offset, a 12 by 1.5 lug, a tire size of 205 by 65 by 15 and a hub rating of 70.5. A 2001 Mazda Tribute has a bolt pattern of five by 114.3, with a high offset, a 12 by 1.5 lug, a tire size of 225 by 70 by 15 and a hub rating of 67.1. Thus, Ford Mustang rims will fit on a Mazda Tribute.

Ford Mustang, Ford Taurus or Ford Fusion rims can also fit a Mazda 6, which has a bolt pattern of five by 114.3, a high offset, a 1.5 lug and a hub rating of 67.

Ford Focus

The bolt pattern for a 2010 Ford Focus is 4 by 108, with a high offset, a 12 by 1.5 lug and a hub rating of 63.4. This bolt pattern does not match the bolt pattern of a Mazda Tribute, so owners can't use rims for a Ford Focus on a Mazda Tribute.

Mazda CX-7

A 2007 Mazda CX7 has a bolt pattern of 5 by 114.3, a high offset, a 12 by 1.5 lug, a tire size of 235 by 60 by 18, and a hub rating of 67.1. Rims for this vehicle will fit a Ford Mustang, Ford Fusion or Ford Edge.
