I have a 2005 F450 the rims are a 10 lug bolt pattern. You can get an 8 lug rims for the 19.5 tires. Check out Rickson Wheel Manufacturing they have allot of the information you need to do this conversion.

You'll want to look for direct bolt on rims from someone like americanforcewheel.com, or the like for a 8x200mm bolt pattern.

The F450's with 19.5" rims are all 10x220mm (if memory serves). You'd have to get a different set of adapters to make stock F450 rims work on your truck.

I've debated this one for a while myself, and decided to keep the stock one in the end.

19.5 rims for your truck are going to be 8x180. I have Americanforce wheels on mine they are bunch cheaper than Rickson Truck. I also got my tires from a local wholesaler which saved a bunch of money. Look into balance beads or the liquid stuff that didn't seem to be available when I got mine. Balance beads work great at keeping them balanced.

Not to confuse the OP, and to clarify 2005-present 350 dually's are 8x200. 2005 there was a brake upgrade that facilitated the bolt pattern change.
