bolt pattern/lug size/other questions!

Hey guys,

I realize a 94 f350 has a 8x6.5 bolt pattern, but so do older dodges and chevys. Will these wheels work too, or is the hub size different? Also, what does lug size have to so with what wheels fit? (ours are 9/16, I think....)

I can't seem to find any wheels i like via craigslist and was wondering if I can expand my search to looking for older chevy / dodge 2500 wheels too.

What measurements should I be liking for that would fit? Thanks!!

I was just in the junkyard test-fitting different wheels, and you're pretty much stuck with Ford-specific wheels. The Chevy and Dodge wheels will slide onto the wheel studs as they have the same bolt pattern, but the Chevy wheels will not clear the hub flanges and the Dodge wheels will not clear the locating pin. I'd imagine that if you ground down or knocked out all the locating pins you could use Dodge wheels on your Ford, but I couldn't verify that as I did not have the time or tools to do so in the junkyard.

Here's a helpful link I found yesterday looking for the same thing. I have 16.5 x 12.5 wheels and want to go back to OEM.

The stock steel wheels off my 1984 F250 4X4 would not work on the FRONT of a 95 F250 4X4 , they rubbed on the disc brakes.

Did you have 15" on that '84? Gotta watch out for that, there were some 15" 8-lug wheels back in the '80s, they will not clear the bolt-on calipers of the mid-'90s trucks...

They were 16" , when you put the 2 different wheels , 84 stock steel & 95 stock steel beside each other you could see the difference and why they rubbed.

That is interesting in that I have been running my rims and tires from my old 84 F250 on my 96 F250 for about 5 years now and no problems.

I wasn't the original owner of the 84,,so maybe they were off something older, or a different brand,aren't Dodges 8lug on 6.5" also? They were 1 piece, not split rims. I sold both trucks or I would take a pic. I gave the 95 to my nephew and was getting ready to sell the 84, the 84 had way better tires so we went to put those on the 95 for my nephew, they just barely rubbed, you could hear it when you spun the tire. When we took it back off you could see shiny spots where the disc brake caliper hit.

That is the problem with a used truck you never know what it might have on it. As far as what fits what, Ford uses a hub centric wheel and the others use a lug centric wheel. All that means is that the Fords index on the hub and Chevy and Dodge does it on the lugs. So Ford rims will fit on the Chevy and Dodge but the centers of the two others are not as large as the Fords. Now aftermarket all bets are off since most of them will only make one rim that fits all in the same bolt pattern.
