what wheels fit

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

Kelly

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.

As Dave noted 5 on 5.5 is the lug pattern. There are some Jeep wheels along with the goats that will fit.

37 Ford guy, Different wheels have different back spaces, so your eyes could be correct.

I am amused how many post wanting to know what wheels fit rather than applying a lug wrench and jack to see if it will fit and what it would look like on their truck.

What the heck does disc brakes have to do with it? Nothing.

D2TZ1015B .. 5 Lug x 5.50" 15" Wheel, 5 1/2" wide / Use with external hubcap mounting.

D2TZ1015B replaced C5TZ1015M.

Fits: 1965/83 F100's // 1975/96 F150's.

Disc brakes were first offered on F100's (2WD) in 1973. The F100 was discontinued after 1983.

1965 was the first year Ford offered a wheel for F100's that used an external ("outie") mounted hubcap.

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.

When did Ford start using 5 on 5/12 wheels? My stepbrother's '50 Merc uses this same pattern.

I think it started in '40. '39 Fords had the "wide five" bolt pattern then in '40 they started using 5x5.5 for both cars & pickups. Some of the earlier spoked wheels may have been 5x5.5 too.

Sounds easy enough except many people live in areas where you have to "buy it to try it." They're just trying to get a little advice before plunking down the cash. Can't blame 'em for that, right?

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).

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.

Really, If some idiot told me that I couldn't try it on for fit, my response would be (not appropriate for this site) and he would still be looking a buyer.

Glad we have different folk in NC.

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.

Little Deuce Coupe wheels - 5 x 5.50"

Ditto for 1933/34's...then Ford went to those oddball wheels.

Ya, a guy I know has some 17" spokes from that era. Would look sharp, but the side loading on them would probably ruin a wheel and wreck me out first turn I took.
