    All super duties are 8 lug. I've never heard of or seen a Ford with 6 studs. Chevy and Toyota are the only ones that use 6 studs with 1/2 ton applications.

    You either saw funky wheel covers or missed something my friend. On some fords with certain wheel covers they have fake lug nuts. My grandpa's '95 PSD has the plastic wheel covers with 7 fake lug nuts.

    Uh... Sorry to burst the proverbial Furd Bubble here, but Ford Super Duties are available from F-150 all the way to F-550 and beyond. While all of the F-350 and above use 8-lug wheels, depending on the axles you get in your F-150 or F-250 Super Duty, you get either 7-lug or 8-lug wheels... so while your Grandpappy may have a 7-lug cover over his lug nuts, it's likely that he really has only 7 lug nuts per wheel, and not 8.

    The ONLY reason I know this, and I asked the same question "Why the hell would Ford put 7-lug wheels on an F150??", is because we just had one in the shop this past friday.

    I doubt any 3/4 ton F-250 have 7 lugs. My Father in law has an F-150 7700 series that has 7 lugs, but it is still a 1/2 ton :D

    I am perfectly knowledgable of the FOrds, I almost bought an F550. :rolleyes: There is no 7 lug Ford, you are incorrect. My grandfathers truck has 8 lug axles, I counted. With a stupid cover with 7 fake studs.

    THe PSD in the Fords has never come with twins factory. If it does in fact have twins it was an add on. Tell him to bring that Ford on down, I'll drag him sideways with some inline 6 power. :p:

    There are some 7 lug fords. Not super Duties, but LD 250's or HD 150's. I have seen then with my own two eyes, not just a cover, the wheel.

    American Racing even makes a 7 lug wheel for them. PN 6607850. Its a 7x150MM bolt pattern.

    Actually no YOU are incorrect my friend, there are 7 lug Fords, specifically the Light Duty F-250.

    Before you go spouting off about something you better make sure you are "perfectly knowledgable".... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    odd=ford!

    Leave it to "Ford" to have an "ODD" bolt pattern! :surepal: --last time I saw SEVEN lugs on a wheel was on the 1928 REO "Flying Cloud" we restored at the junkyard! :screwy: :screwy: --and we thought THAT was weird! :thinking: :crazy: ...(hmmm--wonder if its the same bolt patten??). :rolleyes:

    Hey I learned something. I thought they only had that 7 lug pattern in the HD 150's. Go figure. I on the other hand did not state I was 100% sure :D

    You are wrong on the 7 lug ford trucks.

    Some are f150's & some are f250's, also known as a 7700.

    my best friends father bought one of the very first 7700 fords with 7 lugs. and 2 days later got hit in the right front wheel by a car. bent the wheel pritty good. it was a steel wheel withe a chrome cover that didnt come off. that wheel cost $468.98 and took 2 weeks to get here. of course this was a few years ago and im sure paul ( the father ) bought the first one here and i know he orderd it the way he wanted it. i doubt he knew it had 7 lug wheels though :haha: anyway i figure getting a wheel from a dealer is gunna cost ya but MAN i thought that was alot for a fake chrome steel wheel.
