exactly how many of these trucks were made? It was a 1999 F150. There was no way we had these rims.

The only trucks I have seen like this are the Light Duty F250s, looks just like F150, only with Heavy Duty axles, brakes, and suspension.

'99-'03 F150 7700's have 7 lug wheels among other improvements over the standard F150. We have a bunch of them at work (gas/LPG bifuel), but in general I don't see alot of them around.

It is all about demand. As a lotof people have said, most of these are work trucks, not a huge demand for aftermarket wheels. Even the standard 97-03 models, are hard to find wheels for. Most of the manufacturers, are happy to point out 5 x 135 is an obsolete bolt pattern, and cannot justify cost of a production run.

Found this on a different website.

Rim Package #1: 17" x 7.5 7 Lug Reagant Steel/Chrome Part# 1007C; Center Cap Part# 1130B; Lug nut Part# 1012.

Rim Package #2: 18" x 7.5 7 Lug Machined Almn. Part# 1007D; Center Cap Part# 1130D; Lug nut Part# 1012.

Those are Ford part numbers. Go to the parts man in your local stealership and talk to them about it. Guess the wheels have a big price tag. Somebody said Centerline would be much cheaper. Not sure if Centerline makes 7 lug wheels.

I had a 2000 F150 7700 series. Was a PITA to find wheels for it. Found some at Les Schwab Tire Center.

Ultra Wheel builds what they call the 164p. Its an aluminum mod comes in 16in.
They also build the 175 rogue that comes in 16 and 17 ultra finish or black.

I realize this is an old thread but I've noticed there are some 7-bolt wheels available now and I wanted to know if there are any compatibility issues. I have a 97 F250 Light duty 4wd Extended cab, and my truck doesn't come up in any of the wheel application guides on sites I have checked. But there are 17x8 and 17x7 7-bolt (7x150mm) wheels online (ebay has some) and I believe I have 16x7 7x150 on my truck.
I'm not looking for a fancy wheel upgrade, I need to replace mine because rust has been killing them (leaks, polished cover fell off, rust is so bad I'm starting to doubt the integrity of the wheels themselves). I may even check some local junk yards but these wheels seem to be more common with newer F150s and I want to make sure they are compatible with my older f250
