    I recently acquired a 2001 Sport Trac 4wd, and it needs new tires. Upon inspection it was discovered that the wheels have been replaced with 15". I am wanting to go back to the original size of 16". The tires on there now are 235/75r15. According to the door, the size should be 255/70r16. What other vehicles would use the same wheel as mine? I live in a rural area. There are no salvage yards near me that have the wheel. If I ask for the wheel of another vehicle (that would fit mine), they might have it.

    JB, the gen1 trac 16" rims are 7" width. With a 12mm offset. That might come into play when sorting thru different year wheels. Such as how far they fit under the fender well and front rubbing on turning.
    my custom wheels are 18" x 8.5" width, with a 0mm offset. Tires are 265/60x18, they stand out to the edge of the fenders But still are inside the fender well. some of the gen2 wheels have a different offset. They tend to tuck far under the fender well like a wheel designed for front wheel drive cars. I don't know if you are like me. but I always put customs wheels on my cars, after a lot of research of what the end look is. Im kinda picky about looks...LOL. I have my 16" xlt wheel with factory tires. The only reason I haven't sold them is, these custom wheels from Enkei are out of production. I might have to use them someday.
    I purchased the custom wheels from one of our members. He had pics for me so I could see how they fit. I would not know what to charge for the OEM WHEELS WITH TIRES and factory lugsThe oem wheels where only on my trac for about 2 years. They have the dust shields on the inside to keep the brake dust from building up on the outside... i THINK A SALVAGE yard would rate them as A or B quality. A being the best and D being the worst, Shipping might not make it worth it. I searched for an oem pic. couldn't find one so the bottom pic is a factory pic
