Default Rim size?

Hello all I Just picked up My first ford truck a 96 F150 XL long bed ext cab 4x4 in line 6 with a 5 speed and manual hubs, and I was wondering if any one knows if I will have enough clearance to go from the stock 15's to 16 rim size seeing as only 3 of my rims match right now and I found a set of 16 in rims with tires cheap

They should fit I'd bolt the wheel on before I bought tires though.

Dodge half ton pickup rims are 5 on 5.5....as a matter of fact you cab go 16, 17 or 20's Not sure if they have 18's though. IIRC even 2013 ram pickups have 5 on 5.5

Center of the bolt hole to the center of furthest one away from it. But be careful when buying Dodge rims, same bolt pattern but the rims have a smaller hub size and won't fit unless they are bored out or they are custom rims.

For rim cross reference, check here.

I would ether take the rims to a tire store they could check the rim and tell you the correct
Pattern or you can take off one of your rims and see if the 16 rim fits your truck.

Check your backspacing as well. Newer vehicles use more backspace and if you have too much you may interfere with the control arms.
