Any F-250/350 8 lug up until 1997, that's when the trucks went to metric, vans were much later.

you may also find wheels that fit on some non-ford vehicles, but if looking at those, check the diameter of the center hole, as i've had some that were too small in that dimension.

Yeah, Chevy, Dodge, but Dodge has the ones with a smaller center hole, be aware to stick with pre 2000 also, they went metric too.

Ford vans never went metric, as far as I know. (Well, I'm sure the Transits are metric!) I bolted a set of 2012 wheels on my 1998 with no problems.

then there is a twist...
I had 2009 wheels on my 2000 and now the same wheels on my 2005...

I swore someone here was fussing about the vans being changed to metric.

+1 on that style wheel!

Other than the dog dish style wheel covers that look is my next favorite in the alloy wheels. Being a bit too practical I always worry or wonder how often they'd need cleaning to stay looking new? I have 4-wheel disc brakes on my '03 E250 and just know they'd be covered with dust all the time!

that depends in large part on what model of brake pads you choose. if you buy the cheapos, plan to clean them every week!

When it comes to whoa power I never go cheap!

I must be getting too old---my steel wheels and dog dish covers require no cleaning----might just stay with them instead!

Anyone else remember those discs once available that fit just behind a big dollar alloy wheel, think BBS or something like a Porsche cookie cutter design. While they supposedly caused heat issues they sure cut down on brake pad dust build-up.
