FYI: Steel wheel bolt pattern 5 lug nuts on 114 MM bolt circle. 13/16 inch lug nut *

So what lug nut socket to use? * ( 13/16 inch = .8125 or 21 MM = .8267 ) Either will work.
If you do not have a factory style lug wrench use this:

I prefer a 13/16 "Impact" socket with a 1/2 inch drive bar, not 3/8 inch drive bar.

What I am curious about is how the wheel is centered? I have my wifes old Kia Sportage from 2006 and they have some new snow tires that I put on the car at the start of last winter. They are a 16" rim and it says in the specs for the rim they have the correct 5-114 bolt pattern and the 46mm offset. What is left is the hubsentric part and if the hubs used for the Sportage is the same size as those used for the Niro.



For my old Edge, I ended up purchasing a set of universal 16" rims with the same bolt partern at the Kia luckily. But I do know that I will need to purchase a new centering adaptor ring for the rims, as well remove the rather too large 235/75 tires from them and getting a new set of 205/60 for winter.

Niro wheel -Hub notes: 2017 - 2018 Wheel bolt pattern 5 x 114.3 mm Lug nut 12x 1.5 Hub 67.1 mm

Your "Old" Ford Edge 2007 - 2010 5 x 114.3 with 70.5 Hub. ( 3.4 mm larger ) Centering ring is advisable for best wheel dynamic performance. Custom machined aluminum or plastic around $25.00 each. Also make sure the Edge wheel is not too wide, offset, backspace etc. Will Edge TPS sensors work with Niro system? BTW the Niro shares bolt pattern & Hub diameter with many other makes & models. I think I will check local salvage yards for winter wheels. My tire shop can check for trueness. Let me know how your quest for winter wheels works out. Dave

2005 - 2018 Kia Sportage has 67.1 center hole same as Niro and should fit. Always check tire clearance.

Go to wheel-size.com to get all of the specifics. That's how I found other cars with the same wheel size and bought a used rim from a junkyard for my full-sized spare tire for my 2018 Niro EX.
