Ford F-150 Bolt Pattern
If you are planning on completing a Ford F-150 tire rotation on your own or are looking into getting a set of custom wheels/rims for your truck, you may be curious about the F-150 bolt pattern. While most rims are non-specific, meaning they can be used on different vehicles interchangeably, not all rims are a bolt-on fitment for your F-150. This F-150 lug pattern guide from the service team at Sam Leman Ford in Bloomington will help you choose the right rims for your truck.
What is the F-150 Bolt Pattern?
The bolt pattern, also known as the F-150 lug pattern, is made up of the lug holes that surround the large hub bore in the center of the wheel. When replacing the wheels, you’ll need to ensure that you have the correct bolt pattern to fit your vehicle. Fortunately, the F-150 bolt pattern has been the same in all model years from 2015 to the present, so you won’t have to do a lot of leg work visiting Normal-area tire shops to find rims that have the lug pattern you need. Below, we’ve listed the F-150 bolt pattern, along with additional wheel specs as reference:

More About the F-150 Bolt Pattern
The Ford F-150 bolt pattern, like the bolt pattern on any vehicle, is the diameter of an imaginary circle that is formed by the centers of the wheel lugs or bolt holes that surround the hub core. There are adapters available at most auto parts and tire shops in the Decatur area that you can purchase to change the F-150 lug pattern if you so desire. At the Sam Leman Ford Parts Center, we carry everything you need if you are looking to swap out your F-150 wheels.
F-150 Bolt Pattern Torque Specifications
When performing an F-150 tire rotation, or any time you are replacing the rim, it is important to check your owner’s manual for the torque specifications. Making sure that you have applied the proper amount of torque is crucial, as vibrations caused by Champaign drives can loosen the lug nuts if they are not secured correctly. In addition, whenever you install new wheels, you should re-torque the lugs after 50 to 100 miles.
