anybody know rear hub diameter ?

trying to figure out the rear hub diameter on the 1993 f350 SRW 4x4, sterling 10.25...want to run hubcentric rims only, dont trust the stub centric type for the weight i carry.

From your avatar pic, looks like you still have steel rims...?

Those are perfect for any load, you'll break something else way before the rim or the studs.

Doesn't the F350 have Dana 70 anyway? Your front wheels will be off the ground and your tires will pop way before you do any damage to the stock steel wheels.

The Dana axles are 1985 and older models F-series only, and all E-series are Dana. 1985+ trucks all have Sterlings axles (except the F450's, Dana 80)

just wondering--the cost of replacing all 4 tires is so astronomical, i might as well buy 16.5 rims and tires...but i need hubcentric ( like my stock steelies ) for the weight carrying capacity....

I have run duals on them axles with 235-85-16 tires and hauled more weight than are older F600 has from time to time and have never had a b problem with any studs braking ! the studs on these axles are some big ole studs 5/8" i think ! no matter what size they will hold up to what you are going to haul with just a single tire !

yeah...i still want to run hubcentric. lets say i got a 4000lb car on the wheel lift...plus the 2500lbs for the wheel lift itself,and assorted equipment.all told, this truck clocks in at 7600lbs+, BEFORE any equipment or car to be towed. so loaded we are looking at right around 14000-16000lbs, or more. driving at 40-45mph. and i accidentaly run that single rear wheel into a 15inch wide by 5inch deep square edged pothole......nope, dont want lugcentric. hubcentric only. theres a reason ford designed them that way...if i cant get a rim in 16.5 with hubcentric fit, then i will stay with the stock steelies. this truck had alcoas and 33 inch mickeys when we bought it, sold them and put on the stockers cause we knew we was gonna carry weight.

I believe it's 4.88". At least that's what the accuride catalog claims for the F250 & F350 duallies...

i have never hauled heavy with my truck nor anything else for that matter, but if the loads you are hauling are putting your lug studs and rims in question then you NEED to get a heavier duty truck. or lay of the payload. even upgrade to a dully.

actually, the total capacity of that 10.25 sterling is supposedly 18000lbs according to a few different websites. so i am within capacity. i just dont want to chance snapping a stud--- when if i carry the weight on the hub ( like it was designed to ) then i wont even have to worry. and these trucks are kinda known for being able to carry/haul WAY more than most people think they can. right now my limit is the tires and then next the brakes !

Wondering why you want 16.5's? They are getting harder and harder to find. When you do find 16.5's they aren't cheap. I've got a set on a 78' RamCharger. Changed to 3/4 ton axles and 16.5's clear the front calipers. Tires to fit the wheels (10 or 12 inch width-don't remember) are getting tough to find.
