Rearend is 5 x 4.5 bolt pattern (8.8 out of a Ranger)
Frontend is 5 x 5.5 bolt pattern (d44 early bronco)

Im looking for a set of universal bolt pattern wheels so i dont have to buy 2 sets of different wheels and to avoid using adaptors..

Where to find these wheels? I currently have a set BUT the hub hole isnt big enough for 3 1/2" OD hubs.

*All i have found are expensive sets for drag racing only

Why not just use a set of adapters that go from the smaller to the larger. This way, you will be able to match up your track width on the rear to the front. Spider trax come to mind... great manufacturer. If I remember correctly, you will need 1" spacers for both to match track width... two inches total on the rear.

Before you go and buy some adapter/spacers, be sure to measure the track of the wheels and divide the difference by two so you get the rite ones. IE: if the front is four inches wider than the rear, get 2" adapter/spacers. (and check for possible fender clearance issues too) <--- almost forgot that part!:teehee:
