1961 Ford 6 lug wheels

Can anyone tell me where I could find 1961 Ford F350 6lug wheels? They seem to have disappeared off of the planet. My dad was given this truck and he wants to use it on the farm but the old wheels are rusted almost all the way. Thanks in advance.

Barry

I believe that is a 6 hole Budd wheel used on pre 97 Fords..

Check out this search as there may be some used ones laying about..

Is that truck a dually..???

thanks for the reply

Yes it is a dually. Or should I say WAS a dually. The outside wheels rusted away and came off as it was being driven. LOL. If we can't find wheels for it we are thinking of putting the rearend from a 79 Chevy 3/4 ton under it. Thanks again

As far as I know that bolt pattern is the same up to 97 so you should be able to get the later tubeless tire and wheel combo to work on that..

A good truck shop should be able to tell you..those are neat ole trucks and work really well and can be redone to be really nice..

International, and some Dodges used that bolt pattern too. Might be able to find them in a motor home salvage yard.

Are the wheels 16in or 16.5
Ford wheels will fit a Chevy or Dodge 6 lug
But Chevy or Dodge will not fit a Ford the center hole is to small to fit a Ford

There out there, hard to find maybe, but out there. I seen a set at a swap meet in Fletcher NC last weekend. Also just a random thought here, but the 2004-2009 F-150 used a 6 bolt pattern, but im sure it would be metric. prob something like a 6 on 135mm or close to that. That may be adaptable? I will keep my eyes open and let you know if I come across anything.
