2012 Ford Fusion Bolt Pattern

Understanding your car’s bolt pattern (also called a lug pattern) can be confusing if you’re not already familiar with how to do it. Basically, every bolt pattern, regardless of the vehicle you own, is expressed in the following way:
# of bolts x diameter of the circle they form
The 2012 Ford Fusion has a bolt pattern of 5x4.5, which means each wheel has five bolts spaced apart in a circle that’s 4.5 inches in diameter. Knowing this pattern is key to changing out your ride’s wheels—but that’s not the only measurement you’ll need. Here are some other important figures for the 2012 Ford Fusion’s wheels:
  • Factory wheel size: 15” to 18” (depending on trim level)
  • Stud size: 12 mm x 1.5 (M12 x 1.5) 
  • Offset: 38 to 48 mm
  • Center bore: 67.1 mm
  • Wheel tightening torque: 135 Nm

How to measure your Ford Fusion’s bolt pattern

The measurements above should be all you need to know to upgrade your 2012 Ford Fusion’s wheels. But if you want to double-check for yourself—or are just interested in learning a handy new skill—read on to know how you can measure your Fusion’s bolt pattern yourself.
Before getting started, grab a measuring tape or ruler—whichever you have handy! This is the only tool you’ll need. Start by picking any bolt and measure from the outer edge of the lug hole to the center of the opposite bolt. Because the Fusion has an uneven number of bolts (five) you’ll wind up between bolts if you try to measure straight across—so be sure to measure to the center, instead. 
The measurement you get indicates the diameter of the circle those bolts form. Just put that number together with the number of bolts your wheel has, and you’ve got your bolt pattern!
