I am running 225/45/18 Avon Tech M550 A/S  tires. Rev per mile = 800 Stock Rev= 802, no need to program.
On Limited 500 rims. Not to Shabby and cheap....200.00 on ebay :lol: Will drop next week H&R springs front 1.6 rear 1.9
Anyone else running 500 rims,If so have a other thoughts on tires that will fit?

Re: Running 18" 500 limited Rims on Fusion

Do you already have the 500 wheels on the car? Just curious because the 500 uses a 52mm offset vs. the Fusion at 44mm.

Re: Running 18" 500 limited Rims on Fusion

The fit is 1" outer rim edge to inner fender if you were to rim measure to fender, 1.5" from back or so.. to upper A arm, Caliper distance seems same. You will need 500 lug nuts to fit under cap. All wow aside, I just like the 500 rims,  The switch is subtle because the Limited 500 rim has a lip the Fusion SEL is smooth creating the illusion the rims look the same size. The plus lugs hidden. I will  borrow a fusion 17 sel which I had and take a picture of SEL on front and 500 on back for effect. Again you would have to like the style to be worth a set of tires and rims. Also hub centric size is 67.1mm on Fusion ,The 500 rim hub centric size is 63.5mm, Wheel adapters used. or line bore. Hope this helps.

Re: Running 18" 500 limited Rims on Fusion

Looks like the oustside edge is going to come in 5/16 (away from fender edge towards centerline) and its going to come in (towards centerline) 5/16 on the inside. Looks like the overall diameter is almost the same 25.85(17) and 25.97(18) with the same tire. It should work fine provided it mounts. I would love to see the pics when you get it done

Great choice on the whole deal! I love the improved stock look when the average Joe can't tell what you did.

Re: Running 18" 500 limited Rims on Fusion with Pics

Okay I got the pictures,had to use my cell, sony broke. Sorry about the quality,I tried to show the stance and how the rims fill the wheel wells. The pictures do not do it justice. I am also using 1" adapters to bring them out to edge. A eibach drop and I belive we will have something stock unique. Hope you like. They are posted in my album here. 500 Rimmed Fusion :klavergreg:

those look great. I really like that "stock unique" look that isn't flashy and makes it look like a limited edition or something. very nice choice!

To those running adapter or spacers, what if any issues have you had? Is any vibration / out of balance present / felt?
