My '06 KR has the stock 20" KR rims. If I ever replaced them it'd be if I end up blacking out the whole truck, which I don't see happening any time soon haha.

Oh and a set of 4 goodyear duratracs (275/65/20) will run you about $1,500 installed on the stock 20" KR (at least that's the quotes I've been getting the last 2 days so far).

Were the 20's on 05 and up? I think we were told the 05's don't fit the 04's and less?

My KR rims on my 04 are 18's. Factory.
To the best of my knowledge the 20" were '05+ and 18" on the <'05s.

As far as I know there's no reason the 20" rims shouldn't fit the <'05 as the backspacing and lug dimensions are the same on all the trucks to the best of my knowledge. :dunno:

Ok... Just did a bunch of searching and research on this to see if I could "know for sure". Here's my post from the other rim thread:

I'm sure you could probably still buy them from Ford (tho they'd cost a pretty penny) I've seen a bunch on Craigs List as pull offs and I know here on "junk yard row" there's a couple of rim places that have full sets. I don't know of any real aftermarket vendors you could pick them up from tho.

I've seen in my area a bunch of '08+ 20" rims being sold as pull offs (a lot more '10 - '11s recently) from people buying the trucks and replacing the rims right away so the tires even have 80%+ tread on them too. To the best of my knowledge the backspacing and lug dimensions of the '03 - '11s should be the same.

Ok... So just to make sure, I hopped on to TireRack real quick and did a quick search based on year.

ATX Crawl Rims
2004 Super Crew 4wd:
Offset: 00mm
Backspacing: 5.00"
Bolt Pattern: 8-170
Rec. Tire Size:275/65-20
Weight: 36.0lbs.

2006 Super Crew 4wd:
Offset: 00mm
Backspacing: 5.00"
Bolt Pattern: 8-170
Rec. Tire Size:275/65-20
Weight: 36.0lbs.

2009 Crew Cab 4wd:
Offset: 00mm
Backspacing: 5.00"
Bolt Pattern: 8-170
Rec. Tire Size:275/65-20
Weight: 36.0lbs.

2011 Crew Cab 4wd:
Offset: 00mm
Backspacing: 5.00"
Bolt Pattern: 8-170
Rec. Tire Size:275/65-20
Weight: 36.0lbs.

So based on the above information, the same rim size, backspacing and lug bolt pattern will fit every year F250 from 2003 - 2011.

Based on the information I found around the web. The problem with 05+ rims going on the <05 trucks is the backspacing. The stock backspacing on the <05s is 4" while the 05+ is 6". This is due to the difference between the coil and leaf spring front end differences. From what I can gather, the only way to fit any OEM 05+ rims on a <05 is to get a 2" spacer otherwise they will rub at or close to full lock. Other than that they will bolt right on.

There are a number of wheel spacers on ebay going for about $100 for a pair.

TLDR: You can fit 05 – 11 rims on a <05 but it will require a 2" spacer otherwise the tires will rub at full lock due to the change from a leaf spring front end to a coil spring front end in 2005.

Just found this too:



Here's a wheel offset calculator too:
Wheel Offset Calculator
and this:
https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

So an OEM 2011 KR 20" rim would be:
20" x 8" with a 6.07" backspace
This 2011 rim will bolt right up to an '05+ but will require a wheel spacer on the <05s to not rub at or close to full lock.

Yes they will bolt right up and fit but you will need a 2" spacer on your year of truck in order for the tires to not rub at full lock.
