Does anyone know if there is any reason not to put Taurus wheels on a
Windstar? My van has steel 15 x 6.5 wheels, and Tauruses (Tauri?) have 15 x
6. Will the difference of .5" be significant?
I am not looking for bling or anything, I just have 2 warped steel rims
which make for a horribly bumpy ride. I'd just as soon replace all four
with a set that run true.
I don't know why you couldnt do that as long as the bolt circle is the same.
suer your tires are the same height as original so it won't affect the
You may be limited on width if the Aerostar uses larger diameter tires than the
Taurus, this will affect width. IIRC, most Tauri use a 215\70R15 or 225\65R15
standard. If your Aero uses 235\70R15, or 225\70R15 you should be ok. Tire sizes
given in what is called "aspect ratio", that is basically the ratio of width to
to wheel diameter. I think that's it. If I'm wrong, somebody will surely correct
Somehow this morphed into Aerostar... I wouldn't expect that to work as the
Aerostar is built off the Ranger platform.
The Windstar was based on the Taurus, hence my question.
I have since talked to a wheel specialty business and they said that the
Taurus and the Windstar have different offsets so such a swap is not
For what it's worth.
Thanks to all.
