Eagle Wheels???

anyone have any good or bad experience with Eagle wheels??? I'm looking at a set of 20" or 22" Eagle 064b wheels (chrome and black).
curious about backspacing to minimize/avoid rubbing on my leveled 2005 F250 CC 4X4 SB

heres a link:
Eagle Alloy Wheels Series 064

wheels would be wrapped with 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers.....which I can only find up to 20" wheel diameter on their website, so unless they offer and dont show 22's, that would limit that option there!

the 20x10 wheels have a 4.6" backspacing to em. Will that create problems? I was told I have to find out bc they have a 20x8.5, but they come in chrome only instead of the chrome and black mixed rim.

I know I have the fender room for 35's, especially with my leveling kit, but the backspacing might come into play.

Thanks for the help.

I have the Eagle Aloys 16 X7 rims and I like them very much. I have no problem with the backspacing on mine, not sure if You will. Good luck and hope that you enjoy.

Thumbs up OK..........


I had a set of eagles B--4, on my 02' 7.3L F350 SRW, "They would explode not bend, explode or CRACK APART on Impact from road debris and other items. So they will need 2 be replaced occasionally,

Forged or Billet CNC rims can B Repaired most of the time. 20x10 should fit with a leveling Kit and the right size tire. Only Time rubing items other than fender walls is an issue is when....you Change the Rim Width and make the Rim Wider w/o at least adding a leveling Kit,"which by the way is what you have" .
No Leveling Kit on a SuperDuty + Wider Than OEM rim width, will = suspension scrubbing on tires.
That is why they many times offer 20-22" Rims in an 8.5"-9" Width. These would fit a non-leveled Truck w/o Suspension Rubbing. Therefore 22x10 or 20x10 will more times than not (Usinng Factory Bakspacing) Need to have the Minimum of a Leveling Kit in order for those Wider Rims to be able to be mounted w/ tires and Not Rub.

I run 325/65/18"s or 35x13.5x18 w/ OEM Ride height No Rubbing under full Articulation , NO LIFT. Stock Stance ,Stock Rim, BIG Rubber.

PS: I Know they are More Money, but for our Super Duties rating payload capacities, we all should be running D.O.T. Weight rating requirements when looking to relpace rims and tire packages. Hope This Helps..
