5 x 5.5.. 1980 and later got the 4.5

I got 4 new rims with new lugs shipped to my door for $310 from a grateful wheel dealer who was eager to get rid of these. 8)

F-150's never got the 5 X 4.5 Only later model Ranger's and ford cars. F-150's used 5 x 5.5 up till 97 when they went metric.

:wink:
That opened up a bunch of ideas... for the 82 F100 in my back yard. Sadly, after finding one of my many! tape measures, it is not a 4.5, but a 5.5. I have never heard of this before, but was hopeful.

Any ideas as to specifics on what combos would have had this smaller bolt pattern?

EDIT- A quick search at Autozone does show 2 different front rotors... I will have to check this out to see what the difference is. Curiosity is a terrible thing. lol
