Wheel size question

I'm going to sell my Ex-Cab 04 and hopefully buy a crew cab of the same model year. But if I dont, will my 16 x 12 mickey thompsons fit an 05? I really really really like my wheels and I dont want to buy 33" 17's.

I think my truck will be leaving with a new owner today sometime and I want to replace it pretty soon, but unless I can fit my 16 x 12's on a 05 +, I'm hunting for another 04. I'm not affraid to do a little grinding. I did that on my old chevy a long time ago to fit 15 inchers with no problems. I dont know if you can do that on a stroke.

well u can search autotrader and craigslist plenty of f-250s on there at decent prices. me myself i would go for an 05+ just because they look so much better even if you do gotta get new wheels down the road just take and sell the 16x12s if it comes to it.

nothing changed but the grille really, and I can just change that for 150 bucks. The wheel size is my biggest concern. I pissed and moaned when everything went from 15 to 16s. I am going to hold off the double priced 17s as long as I can.
