The answer is yes, as long as you use 6×135 to 6×139.7 adapters. The bolt pattern of the new Ford Bronco is 6×139.7mm while the lug pattern of a F150 is 6x135mm. It is hard to install F150 wheels on a Ford Bronco directly. With a 6×135 to 6×139.7 adapter, the Bronco and F150 wheels can be interchangeable. Wheel adapters come with two sets of bolt patterns. One set is made to the vehicle specification and the other set is machined to the wheel lug pattern. They act as the extensions of the vehicle hubs which are very useful to convert a bolt pattern into another bolt pattern.
For example, a Ford 6×139.7 to 6×135 wheel adapter helps your Ford Bronco to fit F150 Raptor wheels with no problems. Put the wheel adapter on the Bronco wheel hub, fastening it with the matching lug nuts. Then the wheel mounting side of the adapter will have matching lug studs on it in a 6×135 bolt pattern. This allows 6×135 Raptor wheels to be attached to the Bronco safely. So, the Ford wheel adapters enlarge the aftermarket wheel options, regardless of the bolt patterns.
What Ford 6×135 to 6×139.7 Adapters Are Best?
If your Ford Bronco is equipped with aluminum alloy wheels, then it is recommended to use aluminum wheel adapters. Nowadays, billet aluminum has become the standard metal used for making performance Ford wheel adapters. BONOSS forged active cooling Ford 6×135 to 6×139.7 wheel adapters are made of top-quality 6061-T6 and 7075-T6 aluminum. After the forged process, the strength, hardness, and toughness are greatly enhanced. They come complete with all necessary hardware including new wheel nuts and wheel studs.
Additionally, BONOSS forged active cooling conversion wheel spacers are designed with heat dissipation grooves to make brake cooling better. A brake fade occurs when the brakes heat up under long, hard applications. In this case, BONOSS forged active cooling wheel adapters send air into the rotors to keep temperatures down. They come with active cooling grooves which allow the external cold air to flow continuously inside the wheel spacers when rotating. The air takes away the heat, so it achieves the purpose of actively dissipating heat for the braking system. This is helpful to reduce brake thermal decay and improve road safety.
Why Do Studs of Ford 6×135 to 6×139.7 Adapters Matter?
Even if you figure out the correct Ford 6×135 to 6×139.7 adapters, you have to make sure they come with quality wheel lugs. The good news is that all BONOSS forged active cooling Ford 6 lug wheel adapters include ISO grade 12.9 wheel studs and ISO grade 10 wheel nuts. These studs are made of high-strength SCM440 alloy steel. They are ISO Standard Grade 12.9 approved (most OEM studs are grade 10.9). The tensile strength is up to 1,220 MPa, and the ultimate tensile load is up to 152,000N. High-quality hardware is the insurance of your ride.
What’s better, BONOSS forged active cooling Ford 6×135 to 6×139.7 adapters are always well-treated before leaving the factory. The Dacromet-coating wheel studs are considered to be one of the best corrosion-resistance studs. This type of coating gives salt spray resistances exceeding 500 hours. In addition, the Dacromet-coating layer has a heat resistance temperature of above 300 ° C. This is effective to avoid any potential rust in the link points. Numerous successful cases have proved that genuine BONOSS forged active cooling wheel adapters are completely safe for off-roading driving.
