I have a '72 f100 2wd. I need to know up to what year wheels will fit before they changed the lug pattern size. And don't the wheels from certain year dodges fit? What about wheels from explorers? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
72 to 96 F100 or F150 5x5.5 bolt pattern if you have disc brakes..
Exploders use a 5x4.5 bolt pattern and do not fit. After 96 ford went to a metric 6 bolt pattern.
dodge wheels will also fit untill the new body came out. They are also 5x5.5 bolt pattern on the D100 and D150s.
Maybe it's just an optical illusion but when I was at Pickapart over the weekend I was comparing the stock Dodge rims with the stock Ford rims, it looked like the Dodge rims are reversed just a little more than the Ford? Do you know if that's true or not, Garbz? I didn't have a tape measure with me to measure at the time, it just looked like the Dodge rims had a little deeper dish.
Older Jeep wheels will fit, Willys era trucks, etc. 02 and newer dodge have the same pattern, have seen several around town with those 20's on fords. Then like said before, up to 96, i guess basically when they got rid of the I beam they redesigned everything (lug pattern included).
1971 F100. Stock rebuild and somewhat reliable...
What the heck does disc brakes have to do with it? Nothing.
Considering that the only difference between this wheel is the way the hubcap mounts, a wheel with the internal hubcap mounting from a 1948 F1 will fit a 1996 F150.
Bill it has been reported here many times that there are some wheels that won't work over the 73-79 discs.
Haven't run into it myself, but have read that here.
In the cool still quiet hours of night, you can hear chevies rusting away.
Its not the bolt pattren in those cases, but the wheel back spacing. If the wheel back spacing is to deep. It can over lap the edge of the Wheel to the Caliper inner edge. Many car and truck with disk brakes have this issue. If you have drum brake, this is not a issue, But back spacing also affect bearing loading and should alway be in mind when setting wheels up for your trucks, Always Check your bearing after the first 1000 miles with new wheels.
If it ante broken dont fix it.. If it is.. hit it with the biggest hammer U can find :P
