Wheels and tires

I have a 1993 dually W 350 and looking at purchasing stock wheels and tires off a newer Ford dually. They are 17" wheels and wondering if wheels would be the same lug pattern?

Thanks

They are not. The newer fords with 17's are metric bolt pattern, and will not fit. pre 2002? ish will fit I think.

1992 W250-P-pump and some extra air, gone, but not forgotten.

I was getting a really good deal on these but not fitting changes things. Did Dodge come out with 17'" that fits our trucks? It may be worth for me to look for wheels to fit tires. They are brand new pull off from the dealer.

Thanks

3rd Gen Dodge wheel have too much backspace. Not sure about the GM wheels but I remember hearing somewhere about the center hub hole being too small on some.

True, but a competent machine shop can fix that. Know a guy that did the same with some GM 19.5 rims for his Ram 3500.

The GM wheels are hub piloted and the center hole is about 1/8 th in smaller with the same bolt pattern.

The Ford went to 170 mm bolt pattern around 99.

The backset on later Dodge rims interferes with the front suspension and will mount on the rear but rubs on the box at full load.

Beware of Spacers/Adapters

The OP in that DTR thread states "2 inch spacers will work just as well..." That may or may not be true depending on how you like your truck to steer and how long you like your wheel bearings and kingpins to last. Pushing the track width out that much increases tire scrub through the steering plane and adds leverage against the bearings and kingpins.

May or may not be an issue, depending. Personally, I would not go above an inch or 1.25" max to maintain the integrity of the steering and axle design.
