will this spare work?

Found in my garage, all black steelie, its a 16" but it has a ford logo stamped in the metal and its 5 lug, my gut tells me its be standard ford 5x4.5 but how can I be sure? It has K4 16x7J pressed in the rim too.

Can't see them because they are on facebook but just try it and see. Or measure it, either of those are easy.

I can't see it being a problem on the back as long as the bolt pattern is the same, but I'd try it on the front to make sure.

The first one appears to be a crown vic police car wheel. If so it is 16x7. I am using one as a spare right now.

They may work but I don't have a facebook so I can't see them.

This! Although even if they don't work on the front you could still use it as a spare. You would just have to do more work depending on where you need the spare.

He said they were 16x7 in the OP.
