Those only come in 18's and 20's. I wanted a set for my Mustang, decided on the Cobra R wheels instead.

Do any of y'all have a problem with the front wheel bearing caps not fitting under the wheel cap?

I had to "massage" the dust caps with a hammer when I swapped wheels on my Ranger. I imagine it about the same for F150's.

Had to remember but yeah I lightly massaged them to fit one set of wheels, but when I upgraded to the Saleen Wheels I got a small spacer for them. I think maybe 1/4 inch and didn't have any issues after that.

Depends on the tire brand. Most 235/75/15's have an overall diameter, or circumference, of 29" give or take a few tenths depending on the brand. The tires on the 20's im running, 245/50/20, have a total diameter of 29.1" so they are basically the same circumference as the factory tires that came on my truck, about as close as you can get anyways. I did this to keep my speedo from getting jacked up. I did a ton of howework before I ordered the tires.

Are these wheels available with a 5 X 5 1/2 bolt pattern? If so where? Been looking tonight on Google, but haven't found it yet.
