Craigslist Bully HD wheels

I am about to go look at some 17 inch wheels. They say they will fit a 2000 F250 but is there a way I can take a quick measurement to be sure they are not made for I think 05 and up trucks? I am trying to avoid having to buy the spacers. Thanks

No it changed earlier. You could bring a measuring tape and measure from the center of one hole across to the center of the other and it should be exactly 6.5 inches. The newer wheels will measure 170mms. I think that's how you measure it. It's been awhile

Okay I gotta ask, what holes should I measure from?

In the end I am wanting to do the DJM 3x5 drop but with winter coming I am hoping to get new tires soon...and before that I thought I would check out these rims on craigslist...

Just trying to buy the right things once and appreciate any help. Robert

Just pick any hole in the wheel and measure from it's center to the center of the hole directly across from it on the wheel.

From doing some google searches it says the wheels changed in 1999 to metric. When they started superdutys. Are you sure yours are standard?

I have the stock 16"x7" Aluminum wheels. The cl guy says he has 17"x8" Bully HD's. I have my spare in the back end of the truck with the stock aluminum wheel and will have a chance to compare but still got more to learn about offset/backspacing/clearing the brake rotor....

Maybe I could pull a front tire when I get there and see if they are okay but, still not sure about a 3"x5" DJM drop...

ford only used the 6.5 bolt pattern between 1980 to 1998 then they switched over to 170 and they have been using that since.

So if I take a straight edge on the front lip if my stock rim and measure in to the face where the rim meets the hub...is this the back spacing or offset?

What should I be looking for if I decide to go to aftermarket rims? Thanks

Wow alot of misinformation here.

8x170mm was used on all SUPERDUTY trucks.

8x6.5 is OBS only

Backspacing is the main difference in Superduty wheels. And that changed in 2005

And why did you quote me? Like I said in my last post it changed in 1999 when they started the superduty.
Lol actually I just noticed something about the OP. I thought the whole time he was asking about the bolt pattern change not the backspacing change in 05.
