um i dont think neither the f150 wheels or the svt lightning wheels would fit the ex...the f150 wheels are 6 lugs and the svt lightning is a diff offset...anyone care to correct me thats fine...
 












If you are referring to the 99-04 Lightning or 02-04 Harley Davidson F150, then no the wheels will not work. They are the wrong lug spacing. You would be better off fitting wheels from the Sport Trac Adrenalin(also available on the Explorer/moutaineer) or the 22's from the Edge Sport.
 






dang that sucks but thanks guys glad i didnt order any wheels
 






yeah the wheels from the adrenelin would look great on it. I would look at them if you want something ford.
 












Here are my adrenalin Wheels I just put on. The only down side is that they are hard to find. I found these as a complete set on ebay.

Aftermarket wheels are cheaper than you think. Mine were around $1000. 20x9 KMC XD series HOSS.

Went retro. 2001 Ranger wheels. They are a +12 offset instead of the +44 stock. This eliminated my need for spacers.

It might be your shop. I had this happen after Tuffy's failed to torque them properly.
