anyone swap out the factory rims for any reason? just curious if the bolt pattern matches up with any automotive rims?

5 on 4.5" bolt circle is the same as the Ford Ranger,some F100's, but not all. A lot of Ford cars in the '60s,'70s,and '80s had this pattern too.Of course rim diameter,and offset might be a factor to consider.

thanks, i thought thats what they were but the wheel weights were in the way to be sure.... literally hundreds of different cars and styles of rim to choose from :-) im considering modifying the front spindles to a 1" trailer spindle, allowing use of larger tires as well for more clearance and durability. so i think a set of nice 14's will go good on the back..

Another factor to consider is the center hole. They have to clear that as well!

A lot of Mopar wheels are same bolt circle, but a different center hole. I can't remember which had the larger hole, I think Mopar. But that was a few years back!
