different yrs wheels

I have been reading all the posts I can find, on the change in backspacing on 05 trucks due to the coil suspension. Even went to the local dealer to ask questions where both the parts desk and service manager didn't know what I was talking about. I know the bolt pattern is the same so my question is will the rims from 05-07 with moderately sized tires ie 275 70 18 fit a 1999 leveled 350 without rubbing the spings or a backspacers a must when using the newer rims.

Thanks
Mike

1999 (02/99) f350 xlt
crewcab 4x4
pretty much stock (for now)

If your read post #10...it should answer the question for you..

The 05+ wheel will be shoved under your truck more...which will probably make it rub the leafs....and if you off-road your truck...I don't recommend wheel spacers.

I have a set of 08 20" wheels on my 2001 f250 and yes, they do rub the leaf spring. I was thinking of the spacers but considering the fact that the wheel uses the hub the ride on and center its self that would not be the best bet. Has anyone done this a better way that is more safe and will take off road abuse?

Best and safest...for off road use...get new wheels...

I will never recommend to anyone, to use spacers, if you take it off road....it's just not safe.

Thats the problem, I like the wheels but I don't like the rub on the spring thing. Like you said for off road or towing use you should not use over the lug spacer. Anyone know anything about a spacer like this? eBay Motors: Wheel Adapters 8 Lug Ford F250 Super Duty Spacers 2" (item 270239316766 end time May-27-08 21:07:05 PDT)

Thanks.

Again guys I refer you to the post I made on this topic if you search under my posts you will find it and is all accurate information. I would suggest calling the guy in my post and inquire about the stability of his adapters for off road use and towing.
