18 inch wheels on stock 2000 F350

Hey was wondering if i need a leveling kit to run 285 75 r18 tires. The wheels are factory 2012 wheels, see attached image, from what everyone has told me ill need 2 inch bora spacers. My truck is a 2000 f350 4x4 with factory 16 inch and factory rake. Also how do i recalibrate the speedo, is there a limit to how many times you can do it like the obs as i have the old style odometer.

You can calibrate the speedo with Forscan or Auto Enginuity.

If you are still needing spacers, I have some for sale that I no longer need.

Do you know if Forscan lite will be capable of doing a speedo recal

Bora 2inch spacers?

Don't know if Forscan Lite will do it.

Bora brand? Nope. I cn tell you that they are aluminum and that I had them on a 2001 that I installed 18" Ford rims on. They started their life out as 2", but they would not center the rim until I machined the locating lip deeper. So now they are 1 3/4" thick. The also have 2.00mm studs. (and of course the mounting nuts)

forscan lite wont do it. You will need forscan on a laptop or desktop to change the speedo. Its done through editing the tires revolutions per mile number on the abs module. You also have to register on the forscan forum and request the temporary extended license. Forscan wont be able to access the abs module without it.

If you care though... I did it and went back. I got the new tire size revs per mile from the factory. for my 285/75r16 bfg ko2s at tires I edited the number and put the pcm in relearn. It really messed up the shifting esp when towing. it kept shifting up sooner dragging me out of the power band. my speedo was spot on though hahaha. I even experimented with a number in between the old and new revs per mile number and it improved but barley. I ended up going back to stock size.

You speed will barley be off. when I was going 67 mph I was at 69-70mph (it fluctuated back n foiurth) using multiple gps types to verify accuracy.

Also you will want to buy the $2-400 hub centric spacers. if not you're going to have big issues esp towing. these trucks use hub centric wheels not the normal kind. 1.5-2in spacers will be expensive and still require you to check and re-torq them often. I would just find a set of 18in wheels for the backspacing on the 99-04 trucks and save the hassel personally.

Ya my tire size will 285 70r18. I will see how it affects my speed.
Bora hub centric is what has been heavily reccomended so I have already purchased a set of 2 for test fitting the tires on the front to determine if a level is needed. Reason I went with the rims I did is I wanted this style but they don't make them in the offset needed for a 2000

I see. If you decide to change the speedo all you need is to apply for the temporary extended withforscan and usually a laptop wroks best. the phone/tablet version doesn't have the option etc. A;lso I would get a higher end usb to obdII adapter if you go that route. some of the Bluetooth and cheaper wired ones suck... I went through 3 before I just spent an extra $10 and it worked first time every time lol.
