16.5 wheels?

I've got a friend with a set of 16.5 pro comp series 52 extreme rock crawlers that are 8x170 he said I could have them! Will they work on my 2010 f350? The only reason I'm looking at them is he also has 8 near new 36x12.5-16.5 Goodyear military tires that he said i could have for 100 a tire. I'm looking to use them for my winter tires! Are they gonna be strong enough rims?

I thought with the newer trucks, the smallest rim size you can run is a 17" rim due to clearance on the rotor/caliper

I believe so but not 100% best thing is just jack it up and throw one on and see since they are free

Find out the wheel width and offset/backspacing also.

As a rule of thumb, no it wont fit. But depending on the exact rim.... Maby, offset backspacing and rim construction could make all the difference.

They're 9.75 wide and 4.5 back spacing! I'm slightly concerned with the wheel load limit. On pro comps site they say 2000lb max load!
