16.5 on an 08 f350

I was wondering if anyone knows if I can put a 16.5 inch rim on an 08 f350. I know from the factory is comes with a 17 inch rim. Thanks for any info.

I believe they will rub the calipers, not positive. I have heard of people putting 16's on the 05+ trucks with a little grinding on the calipers, which I would never do. 05+ is a 17" stock wheel also.

As to whehter they fit or not, i'm not sure,


But i dont think you want 16.5" rims. From what i understand there quite dangerous!!!

Not to mention, tires for them our EXTREMELY HARD to find!
