    kind looks like a rallye wheel (or something like that) - probably used on a lot of things, but seem to think they were common on scouts?

    I had that exact set of wheels on my jeep back in high school. The centers were torch-cut to fit and eventually developed a lot of cracks between the cut and the lug holes.

    That's the thing. I have been given loads of Ford wheels. Quite a few of them had a center hole too small for the locking hubs on a Jeep.
    I separated out the ones with too small centers and kept the ones with larger center hole to use to move the Jeeps around. Bought one old M38A1 with home made wide wheels which had been cut and welded to make them 10 inches wide.
    Don't run them, but I kept them because they are cool.

    The best thing is to make sure the center hole is big enough.

    I was wrong on the pattern, but close... Found a pic.

    I think I miss that truck more than the jeep. :oops:

    They are.
    Those are stock Ford F150 wheels and will not fit on the front of a Jeep.
