reversing front wheel for wider stance to fit flares.

New at this forum thing but here goes: I got an 2000 f350 duallly and I'm doing a 2009 f550 front clip cause I got a good deal on it, now the f550 have wide flares. So what I am asking here is has anyone ever heard of reversing the front steel rims so that way they are dished out in order to be flush with the flares? I thought I would ask since I didn't really want to remove the flares and have to fill in the holes.

You can't do that. Need to look for a high quality set of spacers that will bolt to your factory hub and then your existing wheels will bolt to the adapters. How far out do they need to go?

Man, you might be in trouble. Hopefully we can find someone here that has more knowledge.

The steel wheel is flat on both sides of the mounting part., you saying its a bad idea or it just wouldn't work?

It's definitely a bad idea. Flipping it around is going to completely change your load on the studs, bearings, etc. Most likely wouldn't work either just because of how the offset is going to be.

Put F350 single wheel rims on the front?

Still a bad idea though. The hubs and the placement of their bearings are designed to have a centered load on them. Start changing the offset and you start putting a torque to them they weren't designed for.

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

That should work fine. Might wear out your wheel bearings faster. I would do srw rims

I'm going to post some pics tommorow, Ill try to figure out how. Any ways I do have a set of transport truck wheels but all 6 are 22 and a half and are also 10 bolt. Seems like a headache to do.

Can you take the flare off? You might have to use the newer wheels. I wouldn't do anything different unless the wheel was meant for that hub. Like dually wheel to dually hub.
