Will 37x13.5x18 tires on 18 MT wheels 8x170 lug on a 1999 superduty fit on a2005 F350? Not clearance but will they clear the calipers?

Not very tire smart, what difference does the offset make, we are just buying these temporarily until we can buy 37x13.5x20 Toyos, selling our 38x15.50x20 MT mtz due to alot of wandering when trailering toy, been told 15.50 is the problem, have replaced everything in frontend,even dual steering stabilizers and tightened steering box adjustment.Love the look of the 38's but cant deal with back and forth wandering

Dave, Why not? Have had 2 people say they will and 2 say won't, These are not stock wheels off '99, they are MT's 18's with 8x170 lug

I should rephrase that. Depending on backspacing they will work. Can he give you that info

don't really like hijacking, but its better than starting a new thread everytime. The search function (imagine that!) brought me to this thread. Most of the threads found reguarding the factory wheel swaps between the different suspensions (i.e. leaf spring trucks vs coil spring trucks) involve the newer wheels on the older trucks. Always the same answer: spacer required. But what about the other way? would the older wheels on the newer trucks stick out too far? it's not much different than say a 10 in wide aftermarket wheel with all 3 extra inches of width to the outside. the center of that example would be about where the factory leaf wheels would end up on the newer coil trucks.

so, has anybody put the older wheels on the newer trucks? I've got a lead on some factory steel 17s (read:free) that i was hoping to beadlock, possibly even double beadlock. but they are off an older leaf spring (front suspension) truck.

Some 17's will fit the 05 and up truck depending on the backspace, I dont know if stock ones will. Its a caliper clearance issue.
