1993 Lightning Wheels

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

1993 Lightning Wheels

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.

1993 Lightning Wheels

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.
