x2 and I say "aftermarket". :)

The center hole is bigger that stock to fit other makes/models than a Ford 1/2 ton.

My 16"x8's are the same way, that way.

Factory. My book says late 89 to 92. You had the "option" of center caps. Look on the back near the hub. Should see a ford stamp, Along with size.

I would say Factory for a 4wd, no center caps.

When in doubt... use more duct tape...

Aftermarket copy - there's no lip between the ring of fake rivets & the 10 holes. Center caps MIGHT have been optional (I've never seen a truck with Aluminum rims that DIDN'T have caps), but the holes for those screws in the Ford rims were NOT optional.

I think that style of wheel was/is available from multiple brands, such as Outlaw IIs from American Racing (though I don't think those are Outlaw IIs). Aside from the other differences between those and OEM wheels already noted, the OEM wheels have 10 holes and those have 12.

Should be a stamp in tha back hub.

Any factory wheels I've ever had seemed to be stamped FORD somewhere.

In fact all the aftermarket wheels seemed to be stamped with the manufacturers brand.

The factory wheels are crap too IMSAO*. :/
(*in my sorry assed/attitude-ed opinion ;)

7.5" wide 15" wheels?

One size is supposed to fit both 31x10.5x15's and 235/75-15's and
fit neither tire worth a crap! :/

So what size are the aftermarket wheels? :) Might be worth buying. :)
Sometimes it's stamped inside and sometimes stamped on the back.

There's ways to measure 'em with tires on 'em BTDT, it's more of a
"comparison" type of information than a -direct measurement-, but
they do work good enough. No need to explain the methods just do
what you think'll work for ya. ;)

You just need a "known size" the compare your measurements to. :)

Didn't notice when I first read your post where you are from.

If you found a decent deal on these they should work fine if you are just wanting to have a factory look.

Can't be easy to get good cheap parts where you are so if I was in your shoes I think thy would be good enuf but ultimately it's your call.

thanks for response. I bought them, now I do not have them here yet, need to transport some way. They do not have threaded holes for center caps, center hole diameter is 10,8 cm what is 4 1/4 " according to seller, overall dimensions are 7x15". Can be these wheels used for 35 or 36" -12,5 - 15 tires ?

Dimensions should be stamped on back of wheel too along with manufacturer.
I would have guessed they were more likely 15" x 7.5-8" but it should say.
You should be fine with a 35-36" tall tire, tire height really doesn't matter.
As for width that's different as on a wider tire you are squeezing it with a narrow rim. I run a 12.5" tire on a 8" rim and it works fine. Some would say better. Since it is less likely to break the bead when aired down to about 5psi.

Still a nice looking wheel on Bronco's.
Good score for you

I would say aftermarket too, lots of companies made similar designs.

My general rule is to find a tire no more than 1.5X's the wheel width (10" wheel for 15" wide tire, 8" wheel for 12" wide tire). As long as your pretty close, should be fine.

Thanks.
One more pic, side view, they looks minimum 7.5" in my opinion too.
I drive 33x12,5x15 on the factory steel rims without any problem, just was curious how about 12,5" wide tires on 7" wheel.

Cool! :)
Good buy on those wheels, they will fit your tires way better than the original wheels.
I'm guessing 8+1/2". :)
But -you- stop guessing, measure the width...

thanks, sure will do deeper inquiry but have to wait until they get here. Seller charged me $358. Not so bad if considering they are not usual here at junkyards at all. Plus I have to pay transport.
