Question 2005 Excursion and 2008 F250 Wheels; possible?

I have a 2005 EB Excursion with a 6.0 Liter Power Stroke with 16" aluminum rims (factory OEM).

I also have a 2008 Ford F250 5.4L Gasoline engine with 17" steel rims (factory OEM).

I bought 20 inch rims for the F250.

I want to put my 17" rims that came of the F250 onto the Excursion. Is this possible/practical/intelligent/wise/etc...

Thanks for taking time to help.

Yes its possible. Should be a direct swap depending on rim backspacing

Considering the different suspensions the 17" might rub the front leafs on the Ex. Sounds like you need to get the jack out and see what happens.

You will need spacers or the wheels will be tucked in under the truck and turn radius will suffer because they will rub the leaf springs

Thanks for the info. I was thinking all along that the setup was different on the 2005 Excursion.

I don't like the idea of spacers so I'll go to plan B if I come up with one.

Thanks for the replies and your time. Keep the shiny side up fellers.

I'm off to the drawing board...

you can do billet steel spacers and you will have OEM safety/quality, but they are expensive

I think I'll just sell the wheels/tires and move on, but I am grateful for the ideas and the help from all you fellers. It is much appreciated.

Well, we learn something new everyday (and forget something old) and there's nothing new under the sun. It just keeps going 'round and round. Well on to the next one...
