    IF i can fit 2007 F250 17 inch wheels on my 2004 F250? My truck has 16 inch wheels now...

    I know of a guy that's selling 4 brand new wheels with tires for a good price.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you can as long as you change the rims out as well. You might get some rub in the fenders.

    Right aslong, as the rims are the right size, and you have fender room you should be find.

    - Dont forget your truck will sit higher so your angle of your plow will change.

    Why type of plow do u have

    Those wheels should go right on. Your truck will not ride higher just because you have a 17" wheel. If these are a stock set of tires and wheels they will clear with tons of room to spare. The only reaseon the 05+ trucks have bigger wheels is to clear the brakes. I used to run 33x12.50's on 9.75" wide rims on my 03 f-350 with no rubbing. I tried to put my 16.5" summer wheels on my new truck ( 07 f 350)this spring the went right on but they rubbed the brakes. Now I have a new set of 18's for the summer. If for some reason you need spacers you can get 1/2" ones really cheap. I run 1.5" spacers on my truck in the summer w/my 35x12.50 tires, I had these made for a few hunderd bucks. Good Luck!!!

    Thanks...

    Yes, they are bone stock off of a stock F250...just newer than mine. I wouldn't have thought they would make the truck that much higher...I was just concerned with the bolt pattern if anything. I suppose I can go to the Ford dealer down the street and pose the question to them.
    This guy has the whole set for sale, wheels and all for $1000 or best offer. The tires have less than 1000 miles on them. Here's a pic of them...

    I would run them in summer and put mine back for winter and plowing...so no plow hookup issues...

    The bolt patter is the same( 8x 170mm) no problem there. Your truck will be the same size as before.A larger wheel with less side wall height = the same size as before!!! If you can just throw one on your truck real quick and see if you like them. It sounds like a good deal for that set up. Good luck!!!

    You are absolutely correct. I would do it, but negotiate it down to like 7-800.

    Oh Yes...

    I plan on making an offer...heck it's surely something I can live without...

    The wheel offset is quite a bit different. The wheels will sit much further in, and might make turning a problem, as the tires will probably hit your leaf springs before the steering linkage hits the end of its travel. Try one on first before you buy them. Bolting them up is no problem, as the bolt pattern is the same--it's the clearance that will be a problem.

    You WILL need a 2" wheel spacer for them to fit correctly on the front. I would pass on them.
