16" half ton rims.....?

Taught I'd try this here, cause i'm not sure where else to go.

I was on the internet looking for tires for the fun of it, and came across these "1980 F150 rims", with 235/85R16 tires on it. The rims look mix matched, from older gen trucks.


heres a pic.

Anyone here knows what generation, if any had 16" rims on half tons?

DAV1972 is starting off with a positive reputation.
My 1970 F100 came with 5x5.5 bolt pattern 16" wheels. The tires were g78-16 tube type. Those tires and wheels were stolen from me when I put my mags on for the first time. They lasted one night in the back of my truck before they "disapeared". Anyways, I wanted to find those type wheels again and finally did. Took me quite a while to find them. I have not mounted tires on them yet. The tire size might have been 7.50x16? Now I don't remember the tire size exactly.

5 lug, 5.50" bolt pattern 16" wheels were standard equipment thru 1954, became optional in 1955, were available thru 1979.

The left wheel is an "outie" (1965/79). The center and right wheels appear to be "innies" .. depending on width, 1948/52 F1 or 1953/66 F100, 1966 Bronco.

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

Innie = So called because the hubcap snaps onto tabs located on the inside of the wheels center section.
