some for rims will fit but i think you might need spacers to run some of the newer style rims just because most of them have almost no back spacing.

Yes the bolt pattern on the 8 lugs are the same from Dodge, GM and Ford. Here's a site that gives more info such as back spacing. http://www.myboltpattern.com/
