B7TZ-1007-A (replaced 8J-1007) .. 16 x 5.5 wheel / ID: 60880 / 1948/52 F2 / 1953/69 F250.

Be aware that FoMoCo measures wheels across the inside flanges, not across the outer lips.

Left (upper): 1957/63 catalog / Right: 1964/72 catalog / Left (lower): 1948/56 catalog. Parts catalog symbol D = F2 & F250.

Is 16.5" the same as 16 x 5.5"? He did say 16.5", didn't he? Color me confused.

According to what I've read, when ordering the 'CamperSpecial' package, the F100 would get 15" slit-rim wheels and the F250 would get 16" split-rim wheels. Is this correct?

I have a '66 F100 Camper Special, all original, and it has 15" lock-ring wheels. Not sure if they were standard on the CS but they were definitely available.

on the subject of correct rims, Will a 17 1/2 rim 5 on 5 1/2 fit on a 65 f100 flare side without rubbing when turning? Also what diameter innie hub cap will fit on a 17 1/2 rim?

thanks

A 17.5" x 5.25" wide wheel was an option on 1965 F-100s. It has the standard 5 lug x 5.5" pattern and has 1/2" of offset. It is K-H #40337 / NWRA cross reference # X-45059. No point though in cross referencing to other vehicles since Ford is the only manufacturer that supplied it on their trucks. If you find a set they will use an 8-17.5" tire that can be purchased from Coker, Universal Tire, and no doubt others.

It should accept the standard 8.092" innie hub cap. Stu

B6C-1015-A .. 17.5" x 5.25" Wheel / 1956/66 F100 2WD & 1961/66 F100 4WD.

In order to use these wheels on 1961/66 F100's, 45" opening radius front fenders are required.
