I need to buy a rim for a spare tire but I have no idea how a rim is sized, is it the same as the tire? Also are rear and front different? My C-Max is a 13 SEL.

Welcome TashaWW !


Here is a thread with people discussing spare tires: http://fordcmaxhybri...r-c-max-hybrid/


There are more:  https://www.google.c...0.MO0EdogRzzM¬†¬†(This is a google search.  I find google a good way to search this forum.)


Here is someone with 5 OEMs to sell and is accepting best offer.




This listing includes: This is an aluminum wheel with a diameter of 17" and a width of 7". This Ford C-Max Focus wheel has 5 lug holes and a bolt pattern of 107.95mm. The offset of this Ford C-Max Focus rim is 55mm.


There may be cheaper ones on sites like tire rack.


I personally have a smaller donut spare which I bought from ebay in 2013.

I need to buy a rim for a spare tire but I have no idea how a rim is sized, is it the same as the tire? Also are rear and front different? My C-Max is a 13 SEL.

Tire rims have five important specifications

- diameter

- width

- offset

- bolt pattern (number and diameter)

- hub/center hole diameter


You need to meet all five to be an exact replacement,


it's the last two that are critical if you want to bolt them to a vehicle. My snows are on 16x6.5" wheels, but they're Ford wheels, so same bolt pattern and center hole. It's 5-bolt, 4.5" bolt circle, 2.5" center hole. Metric equivalents are 107.95 and 63.5mm


All four wheels are the same size. 


There are three options for a spare

- compact spare tire from any of the larger Ford sedans (Taurus, Fusion) will work, as the links describe, but it's a short-term fix.

- full size spare; a refurbished OEM wheel has advantages

- full size alternate tire; I have a set of snows so I use one of them when I need a spare tire (only once so far). 


Don't forget the jack and lug wrench. And a way to tie it down in back, so it doesn't try to come forward when you stop. 


Have fun,

I suggest you search e-bay for Ford CMAX spare tire
