Pro Comp Wheels?

I've found a set of 17 X 9 Pro Comp 6005 wheels and I'm curious if they'll work on 2005 250. These wheels were bought for a 1999 250 and I know the OEM wheels are different on the 2004 and older. Can anyone tell if there's an issue with these working on my 2005 truck?

Thanks,
Jim

they will work but with the backspacing they will likely stick out more than your stockers

Maybe the guy will let me stick one on my truck before I buy. I just don't want them to stick out so far they sling crap over the fender. Thanks for the input.

Those in 17x9 have a 4.75" backspace so whatever the difference is between what you'd normally run (5.5?) is how much further out they'd stick. 1/2" to 3/4" maybe?

I believe my stock wheels are 17 X 7.5. If my 7.5" wheels have a 5.5 BS and the 9" have 4.75" BS that added 2.25" out further than my stock wheels. I'll pull one of my stockers off tomorrow and measure the width and BS.

Thanks,
Jim

Doh, I didn't account for the difference in width. If the 17's are a 7" like the old 16" were, it's even worse, although I'd think anything over 1-1.5" might be far enough out to kick stuff up on the side.
