Will a 16"wheel fit onto a 2006 F250 ?

I have seen them on older trucks even 2003 if I'm remembering right.
I have 18" wheels on truck now and there looks like still some room yet.

Well I know the wheel trend is going to bigger is better and becoming more popular too.
But I like rubber over aluminum or steel myself. Plus a sidewall makes for a better ride too. I have also observed that tires are becoming available more and more in 20" 22" and even in 24" sizes now. Something I never thought I would see for truck tires. ??

I am thinking about buying another set of wheels along with come A/T tires for summer and spring. Liking the looks of the Nitto Terra Grapplers.
But I would really like to have 16" wheels for the look alone.

I had 15" wheels on my 73 Cheyenne 4X4 3/4 ton. I did grind back the front calipers but they fit. Looked good too.

How did your coolant gel up on you do you suppose ?
ELC ?????
How many miles

They wont fit without some serious cutting into the caliper.

05 is when they went to the larger rotors/calipers. 04 and older had 16s stock

Appreciate it guess I will scratch that thought. I'm now thinking it's a Dana 60 thing.

Thanks for the info.

I was thinking a 17 would be better also you won't visually see the difference between a 17 and 16 IMHO assuming tires are equally priced and available ? that's what I would do if I just had to go smaller but My 18's still have a tone of sidewall almost makes Me want to barf throwing out $2000.00 worth of tires just cause to tops wore off LOL


no idea why my coolant gelled it was 10k miles old Zerex G5 premix

it went south in a week ( watching the EOT rise ) now I an flushing and have CAT ELC ec-1 ready to go and if the oil temps don't come down with the flushing I am spending 2k for a BPD kit I was happy with the OEM cooler and thought I had the Gold coolant under control but I was wrong
