    I'm thinkn' 40's Lincoln? Edit: Totally missed the untapered squared off inner rim surface. The add on clips threw me...agree they are later pickup wheels.

    If they are 15" they may be Mercury.

  7. Winner..... Those are disc brake wheels, may be as early as late 60s but definitely 70s/80s, even into the 90s on the strippers.

    The wheels have a ford logo stamped in them. I thought they were from a 40s truck. they are 15 inch x 7

    The four hub cap retaining bumps (vs three) are a dead giveaway as to them being, as said, later model Ford pickup wheels. The trim rings are from the same application and era, only the red paint in the grooves is missing.

    That bolt pattern fits most Fords from 1928 to about 1994? except 36-39 and not passenger cars after 1948 except Lincolns in the 1950s. thats worded bad. maybe someone can clean up what I said
     
  14. Ford kept the 5-on-5.5 bolt pattern all the way to 2000 on F100/F150 trucks (except for the very last F100 in '83 which had 5-on-4.5) and their derivatives (Bronco, not the Bronco 2), as well as many of the lighter-duty E series vans. As noted, there was a break in '36-39 for the 'wide five' wheels, then in '49 it disappeared permanently from Ford passenger car use (except for some early '50s Mercs and Lincolns).

    As mentioned above, Wheels are late 60's up. the Hubcap Nub's is on the outside of the ring, Earlier rims have the nub inside.
