will H2 rims clear d60ff hubs?

Anyone know if the H2 rims center bore will fit over the Ford d60ff hubs? I don't want to have to "make them fit". I would only use them if they were a direct bolt-on fit. Appreciate the help.

Sweet! So no grinding on wheels or hubs to fit?

ok, so I posted the same thing in the Chevy section & they are saying I need to grind a chamfer off the backside of the wheel's center bore to make them fit. They say it's not hard, but is time consuming. Can any Ford guys confirm or deny this? I may be buying a set as early as Monday & I really want to be sure first.

I heard H2 wheels have a 4 5/8" center hole and you need 4 3/4". Alos heard that you can enlarge the center hole with a flap wheel and a drill motor invery little time.

Well, I bought the wheels a while ago but just now got them mounted. Took a lot of grinding to make enough clearance. Initially, I used a 60 grit flapper wheel on my drill & it seemed to work ok, then I switched to a cutting bit & it was slightly faster. Then I borrowed a better cutting bit (carbide tipped or something) & it worked best. Still took a long time, but the results were worth the effort.
