Hi pb. :wavey: The Ford recommended cold pressure for the Lincoln MKZ is 33 PSI, front and rear. Not sure if the Fusion/Milan recommendations are the same. Good chance they are.

Hope this helps.

Good luck. :cheers:

They are indeed the same, 33PSI for the 17's whether the FWD or AWD wheels.

I recently had a set of wheels put on my 10 se. they are 17's with the Michelin oem tires installed. Driving home I'm thinking that the ride is very smooth so better check pressure when I get home. Checked with my digital pressure guage. All were exactly 42 psi. Door Jamb Sticker says recommended is 31 all around. 42 works really well for me, I'm going to leave the tp set to 42 for better mileage and tire life.

careful, i'm usually of the opinion of being in the 35/ 36 psi range however with my 7.5 wide wheels, the rear tires just get torn up. and my alignment is checked religously, not needing adjustment. so far i'm getting good wear at 32 psi. YMMV, good luck and let us know.

I have a 2007 Ford Fusion with 16" steel rims. Trying to find alloy rims that will fit. Fusion rims are hard to find. But Mustang (2005-2008) are easier and cheaper.

Will the mustand rims work? They are the same bolt pattern and offset. The only thing I am worried about is the center hole. Any ideas?
Thanks

Sorry if this has been asked before.

Hi miller. :wavey: First, welcome to the club!

The Fusion wheel centerbore is 67.1mm. You need to find out from the seller what the Mustang wheels are.

Also, you say that the Mustang wheels are the same bolt pattern and offset as the Fusion. Just to play devils advocate, how did you determine this?

Do you have the actual numbers? If you did not already do so, I would advise you get the actual numbers before you decide they match.

Also, you may get more views and a better response if you post this question/subject in the "Normal Topics" section of the "Wheels/Tires" forum, instead of up here in the "Sticky" section. Just a suggestion.

Good luck. :cheers:

I'm looking to buy a 2010 Fusion FWD (not-Hybrid) and am wondering what type of tires come with it and whether there are choices of brands/models.

Hi Andrzej. :wavey: Last I heard, they came from the factory with the Michelin Energy series tire (it is a good tire). Do not know how accurate that information was. Hopefully a Hybrid owner will jump in with the latest information.

I can tell you that there is no choice of brands/model from the factory. Like most cars, you get what is installed.

Good luck. :cheers:

Not according to TireRack.

Hi dequardo. :wavey: Are you attempting to state that The Tire Rack says the Energy is not installed on the Fusion Hybrid, it is not a good tire. or both?

I am assuming you are attempting to state that The Tire Rack states it is not a good tire. If that is the case, please keep in mind that those are reviews from anonymous "owners" which are simply surveyed, compiled and published by The Tire Rack, not a Tire Rack review. As such, like the customer survey reviews for all the tires on The Tire Rack, they need to be taken with a grain of salt.

To be honest, I normally ignore consumer reviews, since you have no idea what automotive knowledge or agenda the anonymous reviewer may have. For example, I can pull up any number of consumer reviews stating that the Fusion/Milan/MKZ "suck". Some posted on these forums. But most of us would obviously disagree with that opinion. I know I do. :lmao:

I have the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8 on my 2007 MKZ so I can review them through first hand knowledge. And I can unequivocally state that I am extremely pleased with them. But again, I am just another anonymous Internet reviewer. :pc:

Hope that clears up any confusion.

Good luck. :cheers:
