2015 F350 DRW... Is it true that the front wheels and the rear outer wheels are the same wheels just flipped over?

from what I gather
if the inners are steel they need to stay in the back and the polished units only have one good surface

if they were all steels you could move all over


so no definite answer but atleast your getting some traction lol

The reason I'm asking is because I have exessive tire wear on the outside only of both front tires. Alignment checked and good. The Ford rep a local dealer contacted said rotate the tires. Well if the front wheels and the outer rear wheels are the same then that would work. If not, then the only way to rotate is to take each tire off and move them on the wheels. No likey.

On my dually 2005 f-350 outer rear, just turn around and put on front, flip front put on back.
If brake dust isn't so bad you can't get the outer rear cleaned polished up.

I don't know about the 2015 but, on my 2004, the front & rear outers were essentially the same other than which side was polished.

A dually with mag wheels have 3 different wheels. Front, rear outer, and rear inner.
Front wheels are the same size but polished in the convex where as the rear outer are polished on the concave. Rear inner are simply painted steel.

You cannot stack 2 mag wheels together on the rear it will be too thick.

Your not supposed to break up a set of duals, so inner stay inner and outer outer. Rotating is done side to side with each tire having the same inner/outer position, front/rear as before, just on the opposite side of the truck.

In other words, you can swap the front tires too each other, but if both are wearing the same this obviously will have no effect. I would venture to say the alignment machine is off, the rack is too short, or the tech is inexperienced. I guess the tires could just be messed up, but take it to another shop with a giant rack.

If your towing heavy or loaded constantly then this will effect the front alignment, good when empty, changed when loaded.
Basically the weight in the rear will allow the front to angle in more.

I had the same problem on my 2015. I took it to the tire shop to have it looked at. They told me I needed the tires rotated. I asked them how to rotate the tires on a dually since the rims are steel inners on the rear with polished inside surface on the outer, and polished outside surface on the front. They can't exactly just be swapped around. The tires need to be unmounted and remounted in the new positions. Since I bought the tires there, the only cost to me was time. Gonna go have them swapped around today.

Continuity is not important as long as everything is touching.
