Customer Question
Hi, We have a...

Hi, We have a 1991 F150 and would like to put the tires and rims on a 1999 Ford F150. will this work with the brake discs?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?

The tires on the 1991 are a year old and ok. the tires on the 1999 are starting to come apart.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes we will be swapping out the rims and tires if the brake disc aren't an issue. The rims on the 1991 are 15 inches and the ones on the 1999 are 16 inches.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I think that is about it. thank you

They won't fit, they have different bolt patterns. The 1991 was a bolt pattern of 5x139.7/5x5.50 and the 99 has a bolt pattern of 5x135/5x5.31. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
