Didn' know there was such a thing.......... 17in.Alum.wheels Google "says" F150??
Some newer F150s.
97-02 mid -duty f-250’s
Leave it to ford to do something that stupid (Forgive Our Research & Development)
You took the words right out of my keyboard, thanks for saying what I was thinking.
Lordie. I see little or no justification for "reinventing the wheel" which I guess is exactly what they did!! LOL
HD F150 Fords use those wheels....
Some efficiency expert came up with that one. "We need 8 bolt wheels on our HD trucks" "We can save money if we only have 7" Duh! 360° divided by 7 = 51.4285714286°. 360 divided by 8 = 45° Just sayin'
Ford had a pickup called the 7700 in the late 90's, early 00's. It was like a heavy 1/2 ton for fleets. They were 7 lug.
or 10,000,000 trucks using 1 less stud and nut per wheel = how much $$
new one by me , I've never seen that shit before
They were on the light duty F-250's when Ford changed body styles in '97. IIRC they were the under 8600 GVW trucks.
The light duty F-250 and the F-150 both had the same, new body. The 5.4 was the top engine available. The Super Duty F-250 and the new F-350 didn't come out until '99. BTW, that was the first Crew Cab dually that I saw over $40K.
Also, some 8 lug trucks had 7 lug hubcabs.
Yes they did.
Never thought about driving truck out here in the sticks and getting 2 flats? Thise 7 bolt wheels were pretty rare in these parts.
