Are the offset, lug pattern, and bore size the same? I'm looking at a set of Ford aluminum Alcoa style 15'' from a 1994 Bronco. Will they fit my 87 F150? The front shaft seems to stick out past the wheel, further than my F150. May just be missing the cover.

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
AFAIK, The Bronco frame is a shortened version of the F-150 frame, so wheels/rims should fit.

I've been reading and found that all ford trucks are 5x5, with the exception of a few trucks in the 80s. I thought mine were 5x5.5

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

Up to a certain year, maybe and not including Rangers and Bronco II's and maybe Explorers which are generally 5 x 4.5. My 97 F150 is 5 x 135mm and then some newer trucks started using 6 lugs and, I believe I have seen or heard of 7 lugs. Newer trucks are confusing.

built, not bought
pre-97 F150 & bronco to 96 are 5 on 5-1/2. there were some early 80’s F100’s that were like a ranger (5 on 4-1/2.) so those would work for you. 97& up F150 I have no clue but think they went to 17’s and metric pattern anyways. The light duty F250 (1997?) was a one-year 7 lug wheel.
(5 on 5 is a chevy 1/2 ton & astro pattern)

This.

Except the 7 lug was used until 03 on the 7700 lb gvw f150 up until 03. 04-08 f150s had the 8200lb gvw 7 lug as an option.

Looking at some American racing 12 holes off a 77 truck. Center hole is 4.25 but mine is 3.5. Seems like too much a difference. And it was a 2wd truck, so the locking hubs won’t work from my truck either. If anyone knows anything about this hit me up. I’m supposed to go pick these up tomorrow. I can mount them lug centric but still might not mount up okay.

I think they will work, just won’t be able to use my beauty ring. The hub is separate from the wheel.

All the standard thread lug f150s are lug centric (All pre-97). As long as the center bore is bigger than your hub, the rims will fit.

most aftermarket wheels are lug centric. they work fine with any good quality wheel.
