I have an 03 f-250 with stock 16" wheels. I'd like to get a set of the factory 20's off an 05 or newer 250-350. Is the bolt paterns the same? Thanks!

Backspacing is different isn't it?


I'm pretty sure it wont work because of the backspacing.


I could be mistaken tho

So the actual bolt pattern is that same? Just the BS is different. Could you adjust the steering stops so it didnt hit the leafs at full lock?

I suppose if you are creative with the right tools that is very possible. It will cause some serious maneuverability problems though.

Thats the only thing i'm worried about. How much less i would actually be able to turn the wheel. How much can it be though, even with the coils theres still a control arm then in the way:dunno:

I know my 05 is already a lot more maneuverable than yours and if you take some of your steering away it's only going to get worse. I just don't think it would be worth it for a different look. There is an other option of wheel spacers but I don't know anyone that recommends them. To be honest with you stock 20's seem to go for a grand or so. You can get aftermarket market wheels for around the same price depending on style and they will fit better.

Ok so i actually put my dads stock 20's on my 03 to see if they fit. They rub slightly at full lock, there are a couple of options i can think of. One put them on and just dont turn all the way. 2 put on spacers, anyone not recommend this? Or 3 put on a smaller tire. Any ideas? And any ideas where to buy them? E-bay has them but few and far between and i can only find 1 at a time. No sets of 4.
