Will 16" rims fit on an 06 F250?

I fell into a killer deal on some new irok 36 (actual height of 37")
36-12.50-16 IROK Radials. I was going to use them on a scout but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. Will a 16" wheel fit on the F250? If it will clear the brakes what king of back spacing will I need? Thanks for the help!!!

I have the 06 Harley Davidson I really don't know it they upgraded the brakes on it or not that is why I am asking. I know they used to come stock on them. but I know the 05 and up F150's have a 16" caliper and the smallest wheel you can use is a 17
again leave it to

to my knowledge a 16" wheel will not work on a 05 and newer Ford,i'm not sure what backspacing you need but with the correct backspacing the 16" wheels mite work but i'm not quite sure on that one

As I understand it, You won't find a set of 16" rims that will clear the brakes on the '05 and up Superduties.

16" wheels won't clear the brakes!!!

Even some aftermarket 17" wheels will not fit.
The factory 17" wheels just barely clear.
