    I have 2 2008 F250's and wanted to know if the older 16'' rims will fit? Very long story short, I have quite a few sets of 16'' tires and these trucks come with 17'' rims. Thanks

    Pretty sure bolt pattern changed when they went to coil springs. Could be wrong thou.

    I believe that 17" is the smallest that will fit because of the larger brake parts that they started using in 05. I am 99.9% sure on this. Matt

    Lug nut pattern remains the same, wheel offset changed and as mentioned brakes increased in size, 17" is smallest wheel that'll work.

    I've got a set of 9.75X16.5's off my '00 that would look great on your SD....
