I've now been through 4 manufacturers, and all 4 have the same design,
which points a probable finger at the rims being swapped at some point.
The yellow spot of paint on the "Ford" label on the rim also is a clue
to them being from a junkyard.
Can anyone with an 86-91 E250 van measure the diameter of the hub hole
in the rim? The lug locations (might) have a bit more metal on them to
positively locate on the hub, and this is where I need the diameter taken
from. Thanks a billion in advance.
