aluminum rims
« on: June 02, 2019, 10:27:20 PM »
1 ... did the aluminum rims require a washer with the lug nuts ?
2 ... how do you tell the difference between the factory rim and an aftermarket rim ?

I have several sets of the aluminum rims. Some have the FORD oval logo casted in the rim, yet others do not. They all look alike and have the same dimensions. The center cap fits the hole pattern on all of them.

So, what gives !!
