I picked up a 5.0 x 16, inside nub wheel today at a swap meet. Not entirely sure it is Ford, but the guy had a lot of old Ford parts. It has 4 nubs, as I recall the Ford wheels have 3? Lug pattern is correct at 5 x 5.5. Was 5" wide an option?

Ross, Ford wheels had four nubs on the inside. The wheels came in 4", 4.5" and 5" wide. The 5" wide wheels have a higher demand because of their width. A lot of guys will use the 4" wheels up front and 5" in the back.

Yes the 5" width ones will outsell the narrower ones. (At least it seems that way around here) Out of the dozen sets of 16"s I had I've only had two or three of the 5" ones.
I finally down to about my last extra set,
The 16" x 5" is K-H #38189. First available in 1954 as Ford number TAAA 1015-C then number changed by 1957 to B4C 1015-A. Available through 1966 under NWRA code X-45110. Same wheel, four innie hub cap nubs. Stu
Just wondering if anybody might have 4 of the original 16" x 4.5" wheels they'd like to part with? I'm in San Diego and restoring my dad's '52 F1 he let sit in the mud for 30 years and need those wheels
