Re: 16.5 on a 2006 f250?

If your talking about fitting over the brakes, they should. I originally had 16" wheels on my 2003 F350.

Yes they did, everyone says that you can't put anything less than a 17" on 05 and up. I have not seen a 16.5 on 05 and up though.

05 has bigger brakes. if you grind on the calipers 16's will fit on a 05 and newer.

16.5's on ANY TRUCK

Just food for thought here. I had 16.5's on my truck and had a blow out. It nearly flipped the truck BECAUSE there is NO safety bead to keep the dang thing on the rim. I would never try what your trying to do simply because of that and that alone. SAFETY is and should be your Number 1 concern then the other reasons you're doing it.
Like I said, food for thought.

Agreed
and the reason 16.5 tires are harder to find

I still have a set on My 81 fullsize Blazer and the safety bead issue had just became a big deal when I bought them years ago

Dude, my wife and I were going down I-85 in GA head toward ATL in the right hand lane when all of a sudden BOOM, and an IMMEDIATE left hand turn from the right hand lane and a Semi just got by us. In the median we go Crap flying everywhere. Wife on the dash like a cat on a fence on all fours screaming "WHAT ARE WE GONA DO?" Me over there cranking the wheel for all I was worth to get it straight and heading toward the north-bound lane when the rim caught the asphalt edge of the shoulder when the truck decided to turn straight and head down the median and go to the center still doing about 45 mph. That was an eye opener for my wife to believing in miracles to say the least. Traffic in the North-bound lane was moving at about 20 mph by that time and of course they were all Semi's. What a day. Just glad I can still tell the story. NO MORE 16.5's after that.
