2002 Lightning OEM wheels

What vehicles will the OEM Lightning wheels fit?
I need to sell these wheels and tires, and I'm not sure if they fit other F150's, or are Lightning specific.

Depends what kind of wheels they are.

99-00 had the 12mm studs. So the wheels were 12mm holes.

The 01-04 have the 14mm studs. 14mm holes, which you can’t fit 99-00 wheels on a 01-04 stud.

FYI this matters only on the stud size of the rotor. I can have a 99 and have 14mm studs because I ordered the wrong rotors for my year truck.

And no, they are not lightning specific. F-150’s, Expeditions can use them, or anything with that same bolt pattern. A quick google search should say which vehicles have the bolt pattern.

no, explorers have never used the F150 5x135mm bolt pattern

‘97-‘03(and ‘04 Heritage) F150’s and the same body style expy’s


now caution: the non Lightning trucks will tear up the inside of the rim without the Lightning specific steering stops due to the rim width over the non performance trucks factory wheels

Good catch.
Expeditions is what I meant. Not explorers.

They are 2002 Lightning OEM wheels. Does this mean they will only be usable on 2001-2003 F150's, because of the 14mm studs? I want to advertise wheels and tires and don't want to mislead. Thanks.

The 14 mm rims can be used on the vehicles with 12 mm studs. The rims are centered via the hub, not the lug nuts. And also, if one is careful, the 12 mm rims can be drilled out to fit 14 mm studs. A good drill, preferably a reamer instead of a drill bit, and a steady hand will get the desired results.

there’s no need to drill the OP’s wheels for any of the ‘97-‘03 (‘04 heritage) F150’s or same body style expeditions (up to ‘02)

Thanks to all. It will make it easier to sell them with the wider market.

Wheels are nice, with very minor scrapes on two of them. I posted pics on previous post. Tires are Nitto (2) and Toyo (2). Tires at inspection showed 9, 9, 9, and 8. Inspection mechanic said close to new, and new would be 11. I was thinking of asking $600 for the set. However, I did want to sell them locally (Erie, Pa), because shipping would be expensive, and a pain.

Man, I bought my set of non-lightning wheels/tires for $500 with a spare. Granted they are 20s but I would have much rather had these!!! GLWS.
