looking for 16" 5x5.5 steel factory rims

I grew up working on ranches in west Texas. they had 2 76ish f-150s that had 16 inch rims on them. I'm trying to find a set of factory 16 half ton ( 5 lug ) rims for a 56 project I'm working on. Oklahoma would be best...but I go back to central Texas a few times a year too. shipping would probably make the deal...well...not a deal. if you have a set in usable shape, email me cost and location at jayfarmlaw@gmail.com. put Ford rims in the title. pics would be great too. could use 10 of them if you have them but 4 is a start. I have a 60 longed waiting in the wings too...

thanks,

jay

Surprise! You learn something new everyday.

D2TZ-1007-E .. 16" Wheel / 5 lug 5.50" bolt circle / Use with tube or tubeless tires & "outie" hubcaps.

Applications: 1965/79 F100 / 1966/79 Bronco / 1975/79 F150.

This 16" wheel was an option, 15" wheels were standard equipment.

"Outie" So called because the hubcap snaps onto tabs located on the outside of the wheels center section.

Did'ja know that 1956/66 F100's were also available with optional 17" wheels? B6C-1015-A .. 17.5" x 5.25" Wheel / 5 lug, 5.50" bolt circle.

If y'all think 16" wheels are hard to find, try locating one or more of these puppies!
