Rim Size

Hey there fellas, my buddy has an 08 F350 Harley Davidson Edition, an was wondering what the smallest rim size he could put on it would be.... someone told him that he couldnt go smaller than a 18 inch, is this true, are the brakes bigger on the SD HD's than the normal SD's?

Thanks For any help...

Henry...

Some 17s work and some don't. I think it has to do with the calipers and the clearance needed. Some wheels are designed different than others on the inside lip and some work.... He'd have to have em put on first to check before purchasing to be safe.

How about the steel rims used on the Bone Stock work model SD's, is what my buddy is thinking of doing for winter skins...

Thanks...

There's no difference between the brake rotors and calipers from the standard Superduty to the Harley Davidson edition. The stock 17's off an XLT or XL would work just fine. I've got a set currently for sale if he's interested they are located in Virginia. They've still got good BF Goodrich ATs on them with about 50% tread left too. Let me know
