hey everyone. i tried this once and im going to try again for maybe better luck. I am looking for 16.5x12 Weld racing rims. either the stone crushers or super singles or if you have any weld rims that are at least 12 wide or if you got a 14 wide rim i would really love to see it. needs to be 8x170 bolt pattern. if you know anyone that has some and dont want to sell them. make them. :)

Call Weld. But you are better off going to 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.

I have Dick Cepek DC-1 polished 18X12 8 on 170mm

I also have Mountain crushers 17X10 8 on 170mm

but dont see anything in our system that would be real heavy.

your right, I'm thinking 05 and up. I think the rotors are bigger, and you have to run a 16.5 on them.

05 up have to have a minimum of 17 if I remember correctly. I have 16.5 on mine and I wish I would have gotten 17s. 16.5s are so hard to find tires for. Very few companies make tires for 16.5 inch wheels now.

ya, our 79 pulling truck has 16.5 steel wheels on it. We run the Truxus STS's on it. Great pulling tire. BFG TKO's also have a 16.5. There are actually a few differant brands we have run on that truck.

All Superdutys 99-08 that are singe rear wheel models use the 8x170mm bolt pattern.
Old body style(OBS) is 8x6.5

The 05-08's have larger brakes so the backspacing is different than the 99-04's.


In 05 ...engineers to upsized brake rotors by 5 percent, to 347 mm in front and 340 mm in rear.

Other improvements include larger calipers for both the F-250 and F-350. The front calipers have twin 60 mm pistons - up 11 percent from 2004 - for better braking feel. Rear calipers have twin 48 mm calipers on F-250 and twin 54 mm pistons on F-350 dual-rear-wheel models.





BACK SPACING

99-04......4"
05-07.......18"and 20"(from the factory) have 5.80" BS, and the 17" have 5.50"



00-04s came with 16s (unless it was a Harley Edition, they had 18s)...they don't clear the calipers on the 05-08s.
A 04 HD wheel would fit on a 05-08 since they were 18s, but they had less backspacing so they sit further out of the wheel wells on 05-08s.

05-08s fit on the 99-04, just rub on the leaf springs and sit further under the truck than they do on the 05-08.



Offset is the location of the wheel mounting surface in relation to the true center of the wheel......normally in mm.
Negative does move it inward.

So....

A 20x10 wheel with a 4.5" BackSpace will have approx -24 or -25mm offset.
A 20x12 wheel with a 4.5" BackSpace will have approx -51mm offset.
