I have a set of 4 from a 2001. Not sure if that's the bolt pattern you're looking for. Not the rims with the holes but the others. These came off a Lariat.
those are metric lug pattern, 8x170mm. what the OP is looking for is 8x6.5 standard or 8x165 metric.:D

judging by the look of the wheel and the style of lug nuts it had on it, that looks like it was on a newer superduty truck with the 8x170mm pattern. superdutys coem with "hub-centric" wheels meanign the hub centers the wheel not the lug nuts, which is why the lug nuts have washers made on to them with teeth that dig into the wheel to seat. older fords with the 8c6.5 lug pattern have "acorn" style lug nuts that are tapered on the end.

Thanks for the replies been real busy here latley and havnt had time to check. I have found a guy here local that can get me some pretty cheap so i may go that route. BBFranger is right on the pattern 99 and up are different. But some older fords actually used the hub centric wheels as in the dually wheels, a much stronger design in my opinion same set up as on big trucks.
