Welcome to FTE! I would first measure the hub diameter on your front 4x4 axle, and post that here as well, so that others will know if what they have will work for you or not. IE, my '48 F1 16" wheel, even though has the same bolt pattern, won't fit due to the center hole not being big enough.

All 1932/79 1/2 tons (Commercials, F1's, F100's and F150's) have the 5.50" bolt circle pattern. 1959/96 4WD's also have this pattern, 4WD's use the same wheels as 2WD's (except with 1948/62's w/8C-1015 wheels).

The only Ford 1/2" trucks to have a 4.50" bolt circle pattern were some 1980/83 F100's. Otherwise all other 1980/83 F100's, 1980/96 F150's have the 5.50" bolt circle.

Innie wheels: So called because the hubcaps snap over tabs located on the inside of the wheels center section. 1966 was the last year for these wheels (except 1966/77 Bronco's).

Outie wheels: So called because the hubcaps snap over tabs located on the outside of the wheels center section. 1965 was the first year for these wheels.

16" wheels were available as an option on 1955/79 F100's, 1975/79 F150's.

01A-1015 = 16" x 4" "innie" wheel: 1940/47 Commercials / 1940/48 Ford Passenger Cars, optional on 1942/48 Mercury Passenger Cars (15" wheels were standard equipment).

8C-1015 = 16" x 4.50" 'innie" wheel: 1948/52 F1, 1953/62 F100.

B4C-1015-A = 16" x 5" "innie" wheel: 1954/56 F100 / Use with tube type tires only.

B4TZ-1015-A = 16" x 5" "innie" wheel: 1954/66 F100 / Use w/tube or tubeless tires.

B4TZ-1015-C (replaced by D2TZ-1007-E in 1972) = 16" x 5" "innie" wheel (optional): 1954/79 F100 / 1966/77 Bronco / 1975/79 F150 / Use w/tubeless tires (rarely found after 1966, even on Bronco's).

B9TZ-1015-A = 16" X 6" "innie" wheel: 1957/66 F100.

Stu: I don't have a referrence for 11A wheels, but...11A is a 1941 Ford p/n prefix. Are you sure these wheels were used on Merc's? Maybe only as an option...or did 11A replace 01A wheels?

Mercury Passenger Car part number prefixes: 99A = 1939 / 09A = 1940 / 19A = 1941 / 29A = 1942/48 (I forget what the additional 1946/48 Merc's prefixes is/are).

Ford Passenger Car part number prefixes: 91A = 1939 / 01A = 1940 / 11A = 1941 / 21A = 1942/48 / Also 59A & 79A 1946/48.

11A example: 11A-13450-A (replaced 11A-13450) .. Taillamp Lens = 1941 Ford Passenger Car / 1948/52 F1 Panel / 1953/56 F100 Panel.

Why did FoMoCo offer sooo many different 16" wheels? In a word: Ridiculous!

I should have checked first. I measured 3.38" on my F1 wheel ID. I measured 3.38" on my '79 Bronco dana 44 axle. So as long as the hub diameter is 3.38" it'll clear. Backspacing may be an issue, I dunno.

Bill - This is why I generally try not to speak in absolutes, but sometimes get caught doing so, and why cross checking references is needed. The 11A-1015 is shown in the 1953 K-H catalog for the 16" x 4", but has to be a typo. A consistently repeated typo at that. They show that Ford number crossing to their #22977. However, several NWRA references spanning the decade of the 1940s cross refer #22977 to Ford #01A-1015. The other Merc wheel is shown as a 16" x 5" having Ford #19A-1015. The 16" x 4.5" is 8C-1015. Does this now make sense? Stu

Didn't some of these years have the Merc using a 5x5.5, while the same years Fords used 5x4.5?

B9TZ-1015-A = 16" X 6" "innie" wheel: 1957/66 F100. This would make an interesting set for the rear on my F1 hot-rod. Hmm, the wheels are turning (no pun intended).

As for the OP's question, I would first ask if it matters for the innies vs. outties, and that with a slightly wider wheel, the more aggressive off-road tread could be used, and more available.

want to buy 16" 5 on 5.5 stock steel wheels

I'm looking to buy 4 maybe 5 stock 16" wheels that would have come on a 1966 Bronco or F100. I know it was an option for then 66 Bronco but more common on the trucks.

Please contact me with pictures and prices at Jeff.Leslie@wowway.com

Thanks Jeff

My 54 came with the optional 16" "innie" wheels. Luckily I have all five of them. Just had them sand blasted so they can be repainted.

Hey thanks for the reply but I'm not sure if that's the same style of rims that would have come on a 66 Bronco. I think you have an earlier version 16" wheel then a 66 model truck. I could be wrong seem to be a few different rims Ford offered. I would like if someone posted pictures of the different types.

Thanks Jeff

Yes, that's exactly what I'm looking for! What do you call that type of rim? Also is that your truck in the photo?
Thanks Jeff
