I just bought a D-60 for the front of my truck, and Im looking at a 14 bolt for out back, they are the same bolt pattern arent they? I know theyre both 8 lug but is the lug hole spacing the same?

What year is the 60 out of? If it's out of a Super Duty I believe the bolt pattern is different...anything old will be the same though imho (which could be wrong). I'm making a bit of an assumption that your going with a Ford D60?

Thanks for the reply Wil, ya its a 60 out of a 79 F-350. My only concern is that I dont want to have to cart around two spares.

I think all the 8-lug rims less than 17" dia are on a 6.5" bolt-circle. I think that would include the F-350 Super Duty, but not the F-450 +.

What can vary, that I know of, is the central hub hole. If you go with aftermarket rims, I think they make the center hole for the largest application, and the rim simply locates on the lugs for other applications.

Here's one reference, but a quick tape-measurement on your D60 would let you know if it's 8 on 6.5. For sure, the GM 14-bolt FF will be 8 on 6.5:
