2004 wheels fit a 2005?

I just bought 17 inch pro comp wheels today that came off the guys 2004 f350. I didn't realize there was a difference in wheel fitments from 2004 and earlier to the 2005s and later trucks. Is there any way I can get the wheels to fit my truck?

Its just gonna be the offset of the wheel. More than likely those wheels you picked up arent going to have the offset you may need to clear your radius arms on your 05 truck. You may luck out when you install them but i would do some investigating before you go thru the process of swapping out tires and all that when you go to turn and find out they rub and you cant fully turn.

I think with the 99-04 offset they'll stick out a little further

Exactly, the 05+ axles are wider.

Sticking out a little further from the wheel well right? I read somewhere else that only the 16 inch wheels don't clear the brakes and that was the only issue, but with 17s I should be okay right? They're 17x9 and the wheels I have now I think are the same dimensions.

17" wheels are the smallest you can run without grinding your brakes. Even 16.5" will rub that's how close the 17" are.

No go, for some reason even though they have the same bolt pattern I checked today and the holes for the lug threads are only a fraction off but it won't fit. Time to sell them and buy some that do lol

Maybe they're from an obs ford. My 04 had 06 wheels and the lugs matched perfectly
