1996 F350 Wheels/Tire Size
According to my factory spec sheet, my 1996 F350/Crew/4x4/8'box/7.3L, came with "LT235/85x16" tires and "16 inch forged Aluminum Wheels".
When I bought the truck, it had 265/75 R16, 10 Ply tires and has the rims as shown in the photo below. As I understand, these are not factory wheels. I am trying to figure out why the owner would have put these aftermarket look-alike wheels on the vehicle. I notice that my current wheels appear to be a little more robust that the factory wheels. Would the previous owner put these wheels on to better accommodate the larger tire size?
