Rim ?s

I have an '05 F250 and it needs new rubber. I would like to do new wheels as well since I have the ugly steel ones. I would just go buy new but I will be out of a job in a few months and really need to save my coin.

I have read TANK250's Library page (which is very helpfull..Thanks Tank) so I know that I can use any wheel with a 8x170 lug pattern.

My question is how small of a rim can I use? The truck currently has 17" and I know I can go bigger.




I live in the Seattle are so if you have a set you would like to sell let me know. I would like something between 285's and 35"s. Not picky on rim size.

Thanks JuJu

I dont think you can go any smaller then a 17, since they have the bigger brake calipers on it.

you can't go smaller than 17s, and you can't necessarily use any 8x170 wheel because you need to worry about the back spacing of the wheels...

Yes Ican! The 05+ has more back spacing than the 99-04. So all rims should fir the 05 and newer.
Unless I am not understanding the info that is posted on this site.

I have 17" weld racing rims on mine and I will be buying @ least 18" rims to replace them, just bought 35"Xtreme m/t for it and because of the rim size they are load D range tires. If I had 18" rims I would have the E Range tires... so save yourself the coin in the long run.

Yeah YOU CAN... but if you get the wrong backspacing it could look completely retarded and make front end parts wear out worse than they already do.. But hell, its your truck.

well if you r looking for a good set of wheels to put on your truck at a reasonable price ive actually got a set of 17x8" procomp forged wheels. they are polished aluminum and have been ran for about six months. They have never been ran in the rain and are a very strong and light wheel. I will let them go for an extremely reasonable price.....
