swapping wheels different years

Quick question.
Will the stock 17" wheels off an 2006 F250 fit correctly on a 2002 F250?

Reason for asking is b/c I am looking at an 02 F250 but its got some funky 20" wheels on it that rub the radius arms.

Both are 2WD trucks.

Thanks.

As long as they are both diesel than it will work. All 99+ have the same bolt pattern.

Correct, they are the same bolt pattern. However, I recently found out that the 99-04 trucks have a different offset/backspacing than the 05+ trucks due to the different type of suspension. Also, the lug nut thread pitch is slightly different.

I'm selling a set of wheels from my '06 F250 and a buddy test fit them on his '01 Excursion and they sat inside his wheel well by an inch or two and rubbed when he turned his wheels. My lug nuts would not work on his truck and the rear center cap from my wheels would not clear the hub of his truck...had to use his center cap.

That doesn't sound promising

You can buy a pair of spacers off ebay for the fronts, however, you should buy 4 because the fronts will stick out further if you don't put spacers on the rear. Spacers run about 100 per pair.

Both 99-04 and 05-07 used the same bolt pattern (8x170), but the offset is different.
