You could use dodge steel rims from a 94-01 1500. The centers need opened up a little bit but they work great. I did this to mine when I owned an f150 like yours.

He has 17in wheels on his 01 and wants some 16in wheels. Nope they dont interchange. If you try it you will wreck some wheels. And nothing smaller than a 16in wheel will fit on the newer fords.
