Well beyond 1979.

8 lug, 6.50" bolt circle wheels (DRW not the same): 1957/97 F250 / 1967/97 F350 / 1969/74 E300 / 1975/2012 E250/350.

Econolines do not have metric wheels like 1998 thru today F250/350's have.

Went back and checked my notes, be careful with the 80s and 90s (up to 96) F250s. Some have larger diameter studs (they use the 1 1/16" across flats lug nuts) I do not know what year this started, so carefully look at the holes of the wheel. Although the bolt circle is the same, the rims have larger holes and the smaller lug nuts on the older trucks do not seat properly (too deep). I know from experience that the wheels from a 1990 F250 will fit over the studs on a 59 F250, but the lug nuts for the 1/2" studs engage the taper in the holes with the corners of the hex, not the taper. Not good.
