1962 F100 Original Wheel Specs?

I know it's crazy, but I just picked up a full set of beautiful dog dish caps for the beautiful truck I just bought last week....and know nearly nothing about either! (I'm just a girl, but intend to learn).

Thing is, I need to know what the wheel/rim specs are for my new obsession so that I can utilize the caps (I was told the caps are from a 1964 pickup). The wheels that came with my new are not original and will not accommodate the caps so I am on a mission to find the right ones but need to know exactly what to look for.

Welcome to FTE

Most sellers haven't a single clue what parts fit! The problem is...neither do most of the buyers.

These hubcaps may have come "from a pickup" but it was not an F100.

B7A-1130-C .. 10" diameter 1957 & 1959 Ford Passenger Car & Ranchero "outie" hubcaps. 1958 is the same, except they're painted red.

These hubcaps will fit your F100, but you'll need "outie" wheels to install them.

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

5 lug 5.50" bolt circle pattern 15" "outie" wheels will be found on some 1965/66 F100's, all: 1967/79 F100's, 1967/96 Bronco's, 1975/96 F150's, 1975/2013 E100/150's.

EDIT: Some 1980/83 F100's have 5 lug wheels on 5.50" bolt circle, some have 5 lug wheels on a 4.50" bolt circle.

All 1961/64 F100 2WD's, some 1965/66 F100 2WD's came with 5 lug 5.50" bolt circle 15" (or 16") "innie" wheels and TYPE 1 "innie" hubcaps.

"Innie" so called because the hubcap snaps over tabs located on the inside of the wheels center section. Last year for "innie" wheels/hubcaps: 1966.

btw: 1965/66 F100 2WD's with "outie" wheels came with TYPE 2 "outie" hubcaps. Type 5 wheel covers were an option for F100's, introduced in 1966

Does this mean that I will not be able to use these caps on my truck? I'm sorry that I have no clue...I am trying to learn and will try not to post too many stupid questions as I go. I believe that I have determined that I need a 15" wheel with a 5 x 5.5 lug pattern - but what else would I need to be looking for in order for these "outie" hubcaps to fit on my f100? Any help and/or advice will be greatly appreciated.

Those wheels will come in different widths and it appears you want the widest possible for those tires on your truck now. I'd take a cap with you to the wreckers along with Number Dummy's info and find the widest rims, probably the newest ones on his list.

Thank Uni Moe, now that spring is around the corner I am finally getting back to the truck. I picked up some stock size bronco wheels that will work with my caps and truck and will hopefully be outfitting them with some super sexy wide white walls
