* lug bolt patterns between old Fords and 'new" Chevys
I am a new member here and the recent proud owner of a 2005 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab. 6.0L engine , 4WD, 4.10 gears .
My question is I have an old Ford F250 1985 with old rims . Does anyone know if old Ford F250 rims (16") will fit on the 2005 Silverado? They would make good snow rims if I could use them.
Apologies if there have posts on this previosuly.
Chevy is a 3/4/ ton 2005 2500HD
Hi back to all of you. Very nice to be welcomed to a site. Makes an old guy feel good. I neglected to mention that the Chevy truck is a 3/4 ton (2500HD) and has an 8 lug pattern. I was cruising thru the internet on this subject and I thought that old Ford 250's (like the one I have- 1985) and the chevy's made the same 8 lug wheels until Ford went to the Super Duty in 99. Then they went metric. So from my research, it seems the old Ford wheels will fit over the Chevy but not vice versa as the hubs are bigger on the Ford.
I believe they need to be 6.5 " from center of lug to center of lug across.
I guees I'll have to shovel my way out to my old barn and get the wheels and see. I appreciate all the advice. I think I am going to like this place.
