just realized my 97 f250 powerstroke has 7 lugs not 8 like my bro-in law's f350. kinda sucks cause i just came across some really nice rims, just i didnt buy them cause they wouldn't have fit my truck. some obs f250 have 8 lugs, i'm just wonderin why there is a difference, and if anyone can explain it. thanks

Really?? Never heard of such a thing. I've seen those Ford 7 lug wheel covers though.

Ford made a heavy duty half ton with 7 lug wheels. It was only made for like 2 years I think. the outline of the door probably doesnt have the "drop" in the front of it towards the mirror does it? I think there are only like 2 or 3 types of wheels that you can get with 7 lugs. Some people called it not a "real" F-250 cause it didnt have all the stuff that the SD's have. Your truck looks like the 97 and up F-150s.

The OBS strokes had some 7 lug covers but the only 250's that actually had 7 lug rims were the light duty 250's that looked like 150's.
NICE!! Learn something new every day! :thumb:

Unless it has had a transplant, then it shouldnt be a "powerstroke diesel". Just a F-250. Maybe he got confused on the name of the trucks and what they had in them.....

So from this am i to assume that an F250 with 7 lug wheels is a gasser?

Many of the 97 Powerstrokes came with a 7 lug plastic hub cap.

OK Jon, read his post one more time. It says he could not buy wheels due to the fact his has seven LUGS. My question is does he have an anomaly? I have never seen a heavy half with a diesel. Just curious.

Take the plastic cover off, then count the lugs.

Post a pic of the truck. I wanna see were this goes.
I feel the same. I used to own two of those in my fleet of plumbing trucks, they were good but not diesel. All I was going by was what he wrote in his post.
