smallest rim size for 08/09 F350

Anybody have 17 inch or even 16 inch wheels on a 2008/09 superduty. I don't like the big wheel craze and like the small rim with lots of sidewall look. Some wheel manufactures say a 17 inch rim will clear the brakes and tie rod ends and other say it wont. Anybody running this setup that could tell me for sure?

i'm not personally running them but 17s will fit. mine came factory with 17s. as far as 16s no, i had a set off my 04 and would not clear (plus most 16 have a very negative offset which would make them stick WAY out which looks cool but...)

I thought that you needed at least an 18 for the 08-09s

I know 16's wont work, but im not sure about the 17's

Well 17's come stock on some xls and maybe some xlts but they are steel i think. Will the extra meat in a aluminum wheel still clear?

I had a friend who tried 17x10 with 4.5BS and they hit the calipers...

He went 20's after that mishap.

I have seen Walker Evans 17" wheels on 08 and up trucks. I am not sure what it took to get them on there. So Cal Super Trucks had some pictures on their site.

Depending upon your back spacing, a 17" will work, I don't recommend it simply because of how close it is to the calipers and how easy it would be for a small rock to get stuck and jam the wheel, damaging the caliper and wheel, I would at least do 18s, but to each his own

The rims i'm looking at have a 4.5 inch back spacing. I think i'm gonna order them and just hope they fit... The manufacturer says they will fit, but I'm still skeptical.
