      I am looking to put a set of 20 inch ford flex wheels #3771 on my 2012 explorer. I know the bolt spacing, width and offest will work. what about the hub diameter? Any other issues?

      Well, after a little investigation, I got it figured out.

      Any special tricks that make these fit? I have an '11 Explorer awd and I am considering these. Thanks

      I am running the 18" Flex wheels on my 08 Ex. The ONLY issue I had was the axle stub was about 1/4 inch too long. I simply used a grinder to clip about 3/8 off the end of the stub and then slobbered some never-seize on it and popped the wheels on. They look great as far as I am concerned.

      As long as the offset is very close it shouldn't give you any issues.
      Otherwise it will wear out the suspension a bit.
