2022 Ford Maverick Looks Great With Focus RS Wheels

Sponsored

Thus far, the 2022 Ford Maverick has been one of the more popular vehicles to modify on the market today, which doesn’t come as a huge surprise. After all, the affordable, efficient compact pickup is ripe for change, just begging for modifications to make it look and perform differently. As is the case with many vehicles, the 2022 Ford Maverick can also benefit from a set of wheels that originally came equipped on another Blue Oval model too, as we can see from this example owned by a member of the Maverick Truck Club.

The owner of this 2022 Ford Maverick just so happened to have a set of Ford Focus RS 19×8-inch premium painted aluminum wheels laying around, so he mounted them up on his pickup with a set of Bridgestone Alenza 001 tires measuring 245/50R19. Interestingly, the wheels match the Carbonized Gray pickup perfectly, which is not what one might expect given how different those two vehicles are in virtually every way.

This is just the latest example of a uniquely modified Maverick, which seem to be coming out of the proverbial woodwork lately. We’ve seen a few folks swap Ford Escape parts into the pickups recently, including the crossover’s digital instrument cluster, as well as its steering wheel, which allows owners to enable factory cruise control on XL-trimmed Mavericks that don’t come with that feature from the factory.

Then there are the custom wrapped/painted Maverick pickups, which have been popping up lately, too. Back in March, we took a closer look at a Race Red wrapped Maverick – a color that isn’t offered from the factory – while yesterday, we highlighted a lime green pickup that could be sporting a wrap or paint job.

We’ll have more on the Maverick soon, so subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford Maverick news and continuous Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Ford Focus wheels will not properly fit on a Maverick without modification. The problem is that the Focus wheels are engineered to fit on 12MM studs while the Maverick is equipped with 14mm studs. The stud holes on a Focus wheel are 16mm while the stud holes on a Maverick are 18mm. Because of the smaller stud holes, the Maverick lug nuts will not seat properly when mounting Focus wheels on a Maverick. Focus wheels will only fit properly if the stud holes are enlarged to 17.5-18mm. A 11/16th inch machinist reamer (17.5mm) will do the enlargement properly. An 18mm reamer would be best but is not generally available. The next sized reamer is 3/4 inch but would be a little too large (19mm). I would also be concerned about load capacity of the lighter duty Focus wheels.

    Hey Ford … glad I wasn’t the only one who those the Gen #1 alloy wheels were horrid. I actually like the steel wheels … how about making them available with factory supplied trim rings on the XL model … also on the XL wish list … cruise control … sat/radio … factory nav.
