    Is 1999 a year that Ford went to the metric bolt pattern on 8-lug rims? Or did they go to metric after 1999? If these would bolt onto a genuine standard GM product, I may have to check them out. :D

    correct me if im wrong but i think ford is the only one with that pattern and i think they went metric with the introduction of the powerstroke in 95, i had made the mistake of buying some metric 8 lugs and thought i was going crazy trying to get them on my chevy. hope that helps

    sorry, but ford went to the different pattern in 98 when they went to the newer body style. they went to the new powerstrokes before then, but when the superduties came out, they changed it. they wont work

    F250SD, F350/450/550 went metric for '99 model year.

    My '95 F350 is 8x6.5"... as are my spare wheels from a '97.

    E-series stayed 8x6.5" until '03 or so.

    correct. Were there such things as light duty F250s in 97? I thought the only F250s in 97 were 7 Lug, F150 bodied ones. That I'm not certain of.

    no picture but read under the "Tenth Generation" heading.

    Yep there is 7 lug ford RIMS, i started a thread about this and everyone said "No they are only the hub caps!" But its been proven before on this site that there is 7 lug rims. And the stupid duties have the metric pattern.

    Yeah they had the new style F150 body for the Light Duty 250's in '97. The regular F250 was the old 92-96 style and was 8 lug like usual..
