Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

Hey guys, I am trying to upgrade my dually wheels and am trying to find the best place to get good, cool wheels. I'd love to grab a set of stockers from a 2006 or thereabouts with the 17s, but no one seems to have anything. plus, not sure if I need adaptors for the later model year PSDs.

My truck is a 2000 so, I have the ever tiny looking 16s...

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

Dually rims off an 06 (the stock 17's) will not fit your truck. The bolt pattern is not the same. I myself have been looking for a stock looking, 17" rim for my 01 DRW... but have had little success. If you are to locate something please let me know as well! I currently have 33" BFG's on my stockers but this requires 2" spacers for the rear. Im not sure what your looking to go with for your truck becuase that does factor in. There are a lot of 19.5's and larger but me personally, im looking to go that route.

I really want stock looking 17's to get a set of 37" BFG's on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

Lizard1,

Signature please!

I am in the same boat. The largest you can get on there is 255/85R16 on the stockers without spacers.

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

OOOps. Sorry, I didn't click on teh allow signature thingy. I have a 2000 PSD Dually 4x4 Off-road. What I am mostly concerned with is getting a nice set of wheels. I really like the look of the 17s and even like the OEM 17s from the newer rigs.

I figured I couldn't use them as it would be too easy, right? So, I may stick with 16s. I currently have these Epic wheels on there and am tired of them. I like Moto Metal's stuff and just have a tough time finding DRW wheels via the internet and figured someone on here could point me in the right direction.

Here's my wheels now: The truck was just finished being painted at this stage and things have been updated - this is just the best side shot I have. It looks much better now with teh updated headlights, etc...



They are pitting slightly and I was going to get new wheels for the rig.

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

check with Brentz Wheels, he can custom make you some dually wheels and in any size you want and also keep your stock lug pattern so you dont need adapters.

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

Check out Stockton Wheel. They've been advertising in off-road magazines for years. They claim they can build whatever you want.

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

I was looking for something more standard in the 16 or 17" sizes. Although I like the Big Rig sizes, they are too much for me right now. I like Moto Metal stuff, but anyone on here (Site sponsor, etc.) sell them?

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

Anyone? I appreciate the custom one-off stuff like the next guy, but anyone know a good place to buy standard Dually wheels? Stuff like Moto Metal, etc?

Do I just look at Moto Metal and other Dually rim places and decide from there? I just only know of 2 wheel companies that have dually wheels and they are all on-line. Anyone on here have a site supporter they know or have a source that does dually/truck stuff?

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

CustomWheel.com claims to have several different wheels that will fit a 2000 F-350 DRW.

Click here. Then fill out year, make, and model (dually). But don't get excited yet.

Maybe they do, but I doubt it. Maybe spend some time on the phone with their salesman to verify that the one you want will actually fit on the hubs of your truck without spacers or other unsafe nonsense. The biggest problem will probably be finding not only the right lug pattern of 8 on 170mm, and the correct offset, but also hub piloted (hub centric) center hole. Do not settle for a pilot (center) hole bigger than 4.93". If the pilot hole is bigger than 4.93" those are lug-centric wheels instead of hub centric. Your hubs were designed for hub-piloted wheels and will not safely support lug-centric wheels.

As they recently promised us, the American Racing folks now have their Weld Racing website back online. I know of only one custom wheel wider than the stock wheels that's made right for your truck. It comes only in 16"x6.5" which is big enough to add slightly bigger tires than stock. It comes in the right hole pattern and hub pilot hole to be a perfect fit for your truck. Not cheap. It's the Weld Racing Sidewinder dually. Click here.

On a 16x6.5 wheel, you can safely mount tires as big as 255/70R16, one example of which is the BFGoodrich AllTerrain A/T KO. I don't know if those tires will rub between the duals when mounted on those Weld wheels, but at least they will properly fit the rims. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/warmsmile.gif[/img] Maybe discuss it with the sales folks at American Racing and see what is the biggest tire that won't rub between those duals.

Re: Where to get DRW aftermarket wheels?

Smokey-

Any idea on the Moto Metal 953s? The other wheel I was looking at was the ION Alloy 175... Are these fitting of what you are saying? They claim to be for the Ford Duallies, but now, I am worried about the hub pilot hole...

The only size available is 16" x 6". Same as stock wheels. They come in the right 8-on-170mm lug pattern, but I can't find anybody selling them that shows the pilot hole diameter in their specs.

So my conclusion is just like almost all other aftermarket wheels for our trucks, they are lug centric. If you want the right wheels for your truck, the only brands I know are Weld Racing and Alcoa. All the others I know about are the cheaper lug centric. You would think that after 9 years some of the other wheel makers would make a proper wheel for our trucks. But apparently it's an expensive proposition to make a wheel with a 4.93" pilot hole. American Racing finally gave up on making one and bought Weld Racing so they could offer one. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

You can buy the Aloca dually wheels from http://www.southwestwheel.com/wheels/alcoa/forddual.htm - but they come in only stock size of 16"x6"
