Has anyone ever tried to put 1993-1995 Lighting wheels on a 61-66 F100? What problems were encountered?

the 1/2 ton Ford trucks from 48-96 all use the 5x5 1/2" bolt pattern. The wheels will bolt on. You are probably asking if there will be any clearance or backspacing problems though. I am not sure what the backspacing is. Hopefully someone here has swapped a set on their classic F100.

When I bought my 65, it had a set of the early Lightning rims. The front tires were P255/50R17; the backs were 60 series tires. These tires have very little sidewall and you may not like their appearance. I didn't. I would strongly suggest that you work with a tire shop that will mount and let you see what they look like before buying. The only place were clearances were tight were the rears up against the outside of the fender; this is on a styleside box. There was no signs of rubbing but I don't think that owner evere carried anything but a 12 pack.

I don't think you actually started this thread, there was a database issue seven or eight years ago that caused a whole bunch of ghost posts and some other weirdness like dates from 1969.

Jared, I know there has been several issues along the way. Currently visiting the site does not turn all post as read "blue" (looked at) like it used to.

I usually visit twice a day, most days around 5:00. Everything that was on a page last night would appear as read this morning if no new content was added. Now I actually have to click on it to mark it as read.

Updated current Firefox is my browser, I built a new Linux Ubuntu machine with Firefox, visited the site and I get the same results.

Thank you sir, one might think that as long as I have been coming here someone might have shared that with me. Is there a key code that will work like Ctrl C for copy?

I login to the forums twice a day most days, and scroll to the Classics & FE forum and out I go.
