If you use 5-lug to 6-lug Ford wheel adapters, yes, it is possible to install Bronco wheels on a Bronco Sport. Mostly, wheel adapters are designed to change bolt patterns, center bore diameters, and correct wheel offset to properly install wheels that are not specifically made for your car. They 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. Sometimes, you get a set of second-hand wheels, and apart from the bolt pattern issues, you may face an offset problem.
Fortunately, the Ford Bronco wheel adapters can fix the wrong offset. By pushing the wheels out, they reduce the offset. Simply put, a Bronco 1.5-inch wheel adapter will reduce the about 38.1mm offset, and the wheel will be pushed out about 38.1mm. The lower the offset is, the more your wheel will stick out which is also good for creating a sportier and more aggressive stance. At this point, if your wheel’s design doesn’t have enough room to fit big brakes, the Ford 5-lug to 6-lug wheel adapters will completely solve your problem.
Who Makes the Best Ford Wheel Adapters?
As many car engineer claims, forged Ford wheel adapters are the best option. They normally have less surface porosity, finer grain structure, higher tensile strength, better fatigue strength, and greater ductility than castings. BONOSS forged active cooling Ford Bronco wheel adapters are a good idea for your wheel upgrades. The tensile strength is up to 572 MPa and the yield strength is up to 503 MPa (AL7075-T6). High tensile strength gives it strong resistance to being pulled apart, making it resistant to bending and breaking.
Apart from the base functions of spacers, BONOSS forged active cooling Ford Bronco wheel adapters provide more practical features. For example, the active cooling function. Distributed in petal shape, these heat dissipation grooves allow the external cold air to flow continuously inside the wheel spacer when it rotates. The air takes away the heat, so it achieves the purpose of actively dissipating heat for the braking system. These BONSOS forged active cooling Ford wheel adapters make brake cooling better.
Will Ford Wheel Adapters Hurt My Car?
Genuine brand Ford wheel adapters won’t hurt the car. For wheel connection components, the higher the precision, the better the Ford wheel adapters will fit, thus, the safer your driving will be. The precision of BONOSS forged active cooling Ford wheel adapters has reached 0.02mm. Precise hub-centric conversion spacers provide high surface integrity and effectively guarantee safety, stability, and reliability. What’s better, BONOSS forged active cooling Ford wheel adapters are designed with better multi-stage hub-centric lips.
BONOSS makes adjustments to the hub-centric Ford wheel adapters according to the actual vehicle hub design. In this case, some hub-centric wheel spacers are machined with a chamfer on the interface of the hub-centric lip. BONOSS forged active cooling hub-centric Ford wheel adapters are designed with better multi-stage hub-centric lips. The hub-centric metal ring is machined to be multi-layers, and the bevels fit the corresponding hub flange, which eliminates any possible gaps. Thus, precise hub-centric Ford wheel adapters will not cause any kind of vibrations.
