5x4.5 is your bolt pattern, 5x135 is closer too 5x5.5 which is the F150 bolt pattern, you can get adapters though.

We'll need more info on your truck....as 2wd edge vs 4x4 hubs are different......2wd xlt vs. 4x4 xlt hubs are different. Stuff like that might cause problems with the hub. Car wheels on trucks usually require a spacer of some kind due to the differences in hubs. The wheel offset also plays a role as well.

Here's a quote from a member on RPS(Rangerpowersports)...300C, Charger, Magnum are virtually the same car...

here you can see how SMALL the cap part is. the ranger hub pretty much takes up the entire larger opening behind the cap
