              Lordie. I see little or no justification for "reinventing the wheel" which I guess is exactly what they did!! LOL

                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.

                    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.

                    Never thought about driving truck out here in the sticks and getting 2 flats? Thise 7 bolt wheels were pretty rare in these parts.
