I have a 2002 f350 dually. 220,000 miles.

Currently alum on front and rear outer. Steel is on rear inners.

Michelin LTX are on current wheels.

I would buy one set of 6 new steel wheels.


Would I purchase through this site or a dealer in Chicago area?

Not if you use '99-'04 F-350 dually rims, or rims that meet the specs for '99-'04 F-350 Dually rims:


16" x 6.0 K
5.35" offset
8 studs
170mm bolt circle
2600 pounds weight capacity @ground

Your local DiscountTire store can probably order them for you, or you can order them yourself from:


I checked with our local go-to choice for wheels - Southwest Wheel.com - and they didn't have any steel wheels for '99-'04 F-350 duallies. They had plenty of dually alloy wheels, but you said you don't want those.


Caution! Earlier Ford dually wheels won't fit - they have a different bolt circle. And 2005-up Ford dually wheels won't fit either - they have different offset. So if you find an F-350 in a bone yard, be certain it is a '99 thru '04 if you want to buy the take-off wheels.

My Sierra Blanca (Spanish for White Mountain) in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it several years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream. Replaced the 2012 with a 2019 F-150 3.5L EcoBoost with max tow.

Thank you for the reply. 6 wheels isn't cheap. This is one reason I am looking at steel wheels.

I would recommend going to your local Discount Tire store in the Chicago area so they can swap out the wheels for you. The local stores like us will not be undersold.

Thanks for your support.

OK gentleman, I need some expert advice.
Regarding my 1987 f250 4x4 6.9L, will 1999 16" dodge wheels fit? Or will 17" 2006 dodge wheels fit?
I have the opportunity to purchase both sets of wheels with tires for a ridiculous deal and I think the 17s will look great.

According the the seller both are 8x6.5, lug centric, with 4.5 backspacing. "I don't have the hub measurements but it clears a Dana 80 hub so it should work"...

Will these fit my 87 4x4

If it has a screw, i must turn it!
New to Diesel, but not new to working on cars.
I love fixing things and taking something apart and making it better, stronger or more efficient.

I have 17" Dodge wheels on my '89 with 315/75/17 tires. It required 2" billet spacers for them to fit.
