I need steel rims for a good used set of 235/70R/16 Toyo G-02 Plus Open Country winter tires I just purchased.

Asked by Feb 22, 2015 at 11:30 PM about the 2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I currently have 235/70R/16 all seasons on it. What is the RIM wheel size I should purchase for this? Should they be 15 X 6.5, Bolt Pattern 5x4.5?
Lastly, are these good tires or did I waste my money? I checked out a few sites but I'm still not sure.
Thanks to all who are able to reply.

Bolt Pattern is 5-114mm or 5-4.5", since you have 16" Toyo tires, you should be using a wheel that is 16" x 7" which is OEM size, not 15" in Dia. Since you already have the tires, run em.

6.5" wide will work too. Just make sure you are purchasing a 16" rim.

Didn't you just say they were from a 98 Jeep? I answered: This is death waiting to happen! These tires are 17 years old and for sure dry rotted. they could blow at 40-50 mph on the hwy. PLEASE, DO NOT USE THEM! I know what you are thinking... they have good tread on them and you don't want to throw them away... but do.

Sorry, the other set was 15" my mistake.
