no rubbing steering/ tracking or beating on it,,, I cannot answer to a lot of off camber wheeling though, as I haven't done anything serious I guess. Sometimes my beating can be serious though :devilish:

Cool. I think I’m going your route. 16x6 with 3.75 BS. 31.7” by 9.3”. Hopefully I’ll get by on the 2.5” suspension lift. I also don’t plan to do any crazy off reading with mine. She’s in very good shape for her age and has only been gently used so far.

The factory 16 Bronco wheels were 16x5, I have couple sets, I have been told that there was a 16x6 or 16x6.5, however I have never actually seen a set and they may have been mistaken the 16.5x6 for the 16

Only as a matter of interest; in 1971 the {5} 6.50x16 tires on 16" wheels was an extra $68.70 -- and Base price in my area with the 302 ci was $4033.35 . I always laugh when the prices are quoted in cents vs $100 at a wack - LOL.

I have more questions than answers.
These are some rims that came with a 74 F100. 3 white ones 16" and 1 greenish 16", plus a bonus 16" split rim. As you can see the greenish one is not designed for a center hubcap. I haven't taken the time to look for me manufacturers marks on any of them. The picture angle appears to be bad. They are 5*5.5 bolt pattern, 5" wide, 16" with a 3 3/4" center hole.

The white ones probably came on the '74 F100. The straight cut slots on the centers are the later design and I can see the Ford script in your pictures. I think you will find that they have the "Ford" script and just small "KH" letters; not the "FoMoCo" script and the larger "K/H" like the earlier 16" version. Cool wheels....

The green one is the '50's Ford truck wheel with the provision for an "inside the rim" dog dish cap instead of the "outside the rim" caps... The wheels like the green one are worth a fraction of what the white ones are....

Great information Fordfan, thanks. You have better eyes than me on the logos.

Hope the measurements and your information helps others. The knowledge here never ceases to amaze me.
