It went by GVWR as well.

Here is a simple chart, and is the general rule...

1980-1983: F-100: GVWR: 4700/5000: with Power Brakes: 10inch brakes: 5x4.5

1980-1983: F-100: GVWR: 5150 and 4700/5000 with manual brakes.: 11 inch brakes: 5x5.5

1980-1986: F-150 and U-150: 11 inch brakes: 5x5.5

doug1222556 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
They are 1/2". I had a guy try and tell me he had 5x5 1/4" Ford wheels one time. Let me re-phrase that he strongly insisted! (That's what you get if you measure the 5x5 1/2" pattern center to center).

Doug, thanks for clarification. I been reading about my rims being 5.5 and sure as shiznit...if you measure it is 5.25. Started to worry. Why the hell it measures one length and standardizes to another is crazy.
