2017 F350 Wheels and Tires

Ok, with more and more of these out there now, who's changed up the wheels, and what you running?
These are my new ones, 20" Fuel Couplers with 37x13.5" Comforser 3000 MT's. I ordered my lift today, BDS 4" with radius arms and Fox 2.0 shocks.

Black is the new Chrome! Perhaps someday I'll do some aftermarket stuff. Years ago when I was looking, I liked the looked of BMF wheels.

Do the same concerns still exist as they did years ago in regards to only running hub centric wheels on these trucks?
That was the big talk years ago when I did wheels on my 04.
Especially guys that towed heavy, like I did.
Weld was one of the few manufactures to make hub centric wheels.

Don't mean to divert your thread, just curious.

I'm not 100% but I don't think so. These are built to the truck's specs ad a very common thing people do without issue.

Big difference between what "everyone does" and the right thing.


Factory wheels are hub centric by design.
Most aftermarket are lug centric by design.
Load carrying characteristics are different.


Folks that tow heavy, should know what is correct and what isn't.

Thanks, just read up on there difference haha. Maybe I'll be looking for hub centric spacers before I mount my wheels.

I know I'm a pimp, but I ordered a custom set of American Force Baus for the dually. 22" with Nitto 35/12.50/22 (or close to it), Im not feeling a MT tire on a truck I use on the highway. Ill keep my stockers to swap for longer trips or tows.

I also have the Carli back country lift with Fox 2.0 remote resi shocks. Still waiting on the new Carli track bar for the 2017, they just started shipping.

2012 F250 6.7 Lariat Ultimate CCSB FX4
2012 F150 Ecoboost FX4 CCSB FX4

Sounds like a nice set up, the Carli is pimp for sure. Post pics once it's installed please.

2nd on seeing that dually. I really want direct bolt 20"s for my rig but apparently won't fit a 10x225. First thought 22"s was larger then I wanted to go but now am rethinking it. 19.5s look great but definitely lack in comfort and traction!

I have had great ice and snow performance with Goodyear Duratracs on 3 other previous vehicles. Will be pulling the trigger on a 17 KR DRW within 2wks. Problem is, it's got 4.10 axles. Too get better road mileage I'm considering 255/75R17 gains and inch or so and should reduce the overall ratio to 3.90 or so. Curious if anyone else has done something similar and what were your results in mpg?
