They are not the same. You cant cross them from an OBS to a NBS and vice versa. It sucks.

Actually, 8x6.5 is = 8-165.1 One is stated in " (8x6.5) and the other is stated in mm (8x165.1) They are the same bolt pattern.

If you are trying to run wheels from one vehicle on another bolt pattern is not the only thing that determines if they will fit or not. Hub size, width and offset need to be correct as well.

yeah the last guys right. 8x6.5 is equivalent to 8x165mm. the superduty rims are the 8x170mm. So if its 8x6.5 or 8x165 then they will work on any older 8 lug ford
