    Will a set of older 16.5 wheels for a Ford with an 8 lug pattern fit on an 87 Chevy with an 8 lug pattern.

    I've been told that the newer trucks will not inter-change but what about the older ones?

    Thanks.

    The bolt circle for the 8 mounting lugs will match up, I believe that the centre hole on the Chevy rims is around 4-1/2" diameter while the "F-word" rim has a slightly larger centre hole.

    The question is why? The 16.5 tires are limited in size and more money than 16" tires.

    16.5s don't have the weight capacity of many of the 16s either.
