What year Mustang wheels are we talking about? In addition to the bolt pattern being wrong, the offset on the newer wheels (94 and up) are extreme positive, similar to front wheel drive. Chances are they won't work for you.

What he said - They won't, GT Wheels are crazy positive offset.

No 1965/2011 Mustang wheels will fit an F1, F100/150, Bronco or E100/150.

5 lug wheels on a 5.50" bolt circle pattern: 1948/52 F1 / 1953/79 F100 / 1966/96 Bronco / 1975/96 F150 / Some 1980/83 F100 / 1975/2011 E100/150.

Some 1980/83 F100's have 5 lug 4.50" bolt circle wheels. But wheels from Passenger Cars with a like pattern will not clear the F100's disc brake calipers.

Ford pickup truck wheels thru the '70's used the 5 on 5.5" bolt circle, and used similar offsets. I think it may even go past that, as I recall '80's (big) Broncos used that b.c. and many of them were aluminum.

1977: Ford introduced Styled Steel & Aluminum Wheels for F100/150's & E100/150's, Bronco's got 'em in 1978.

These wheels and variations of both were used thru 1983 on F100's (*), thru 1996 on F150's and Bronco's, thru today on E100/150's.

These wheels use 3 expandable anchors to retain the hubcaps, which are plastic chrome or black.

The holes for these anchors are within the bolt circle (the anchors are just hand pressed in). 3 chrome or black screws then thread into the anchors.

Steel anchors are used with steel wheels, nylon anchors with aluminum wheels.

* Some 1980/83 F100's have 4.50" bolt circle wheels, some have 5.50" bolt circle wheels.

See post #6 for the bolt circle patterns.
