8x170 f250 on a f350 dually pics added

I know my dually, 2006, lug pattern is 8x200 and the f250 has the 8x170 lug pattern. Im looking to switch my front wheels out for a wider wheel. All the wheels are 8x170. So the question is can it be done. I would obviously take off the front dually spacer. Is the lug pattern different under the spacer? I sure hope so. Thanks

The lug pattern once you take the spacer off is 8x170. I have a 08 axle from a dually. pulled the spacer off and it is 8x170

Can the studs underthe spacer be used to bolt up the new wheels or do i have to replace them with the spacer studs. Good news so far

You can use the studs that are there. When I de-duallied my 02 I was initially going to change all the studs from the adapter/spacer into the hub. I pulled one out of each and they were the same length...

Even better. It looks like im ordering wheels tomorrow. going with the xd addicts, black with machined face of course. They look like they are very similar to my wheels now except they are 9" wide. I will make a follow up thread when i do the conversion. Thanks for all the help

I used the studs out of the spacer in place of the ones that hold the spacer on. if i remember correctly they are the actual wheel studs are a finer thread. the spacer mount studs are course. They are super easy to change too there is a spot in the back that you can turn the rotor to and get the studs out one at a time without removing anything else. it will only take you about 10 min a side.

I could be wrong here but the 9 wide wheel will stretch out your tire more making it shorter than your back tires on skinnier wheels and thats not good for the drivetrain.

I thought about this but simply cant imagine the height difference being to a point where it would cause problems. Also i dont use 4wd too often and if i do its only for a few minutes to get myself or someone else out if a sticky situation. I do pland on manually measureing revs per mile for both front and rear. I will keep this thread updated with progress and final pics. Thanks

finally got it all done today. wheels are 17x9 xd addict black with machined face. obviously the front and back are different but i tried to find some that looked similar. personally i think they look good. also i found them on ebay for 75 per wheel. i decided to leave the spacer studs in the hub and just use those to attach the wheels. i needed new lugs regardless plus if i ever want to go back to the dually wheels its one less thing i need to change. i think it looks so much better with the 9" wheels. here are some pics. let me know what you guys think
