What year wheels fit my 8-lug '86' F250

I was checking out ebay and was wanting to just upgrade my ugly steel wheels to a nice looking wheel. I would be happy with the chrome stockers off a 95 or 96, as long as I didn't sacrifice the load range of my truck.
So what year stockers could I get to fit my lug pattern and tire size.
235/75/R16 I believe.

I'm not sure about the new SuperDuty, but the years that share your body would be safe. I think the newer ones are likely the same, the difference would be the offset. Also, Dodge will trade, as will after market Chevy wheels, but not factory, and not the ones with proper offset for the chevs after 88.

97 and back 8 lug ford and dodge are the same wheels, and most of the aftermarket 8 lugs will fit.

And when he says "BACK" he means back. I know 1961 - 1997 have the same bolt patterns - and it might even go back to 1955. The 235/85/16 tires will fit on all the factory 16 inch rims in that time frame with no problems regarding bead width. When your out looking don't accidently pick up some 16.5 rims - tires are getting pretty rare for that size and they'll screw up your speedometer.

The older rigs used split rims that most shops won't service. 16.5 rims are dangerous if you try to mount 16 tires on them. I was working a tire shop when a kid tried this. The tire exploded, sending tire and rim to the ceiling, bending a steel rafter before coming back don, He was lucky in that it blew him back out of harrm's way, but the tire machine was a mag machine with the rotating table, and it didn't fare so well, it was trashed entirely. The table was tilting, and oil leaked out from underneath. I currently have 16.5 aluminum rims on mine, but I will be replacing them when the tires are worn out. they came with the truck when I got it. The tires are the equivalent of running 245 75 r16's which is abaout an inch shorter than it is supposed to have. The speedo's accurate, got the ticket to prove it. It (speedo) must have been re geared to match the tires.

SuperDuty rims are on a metric circle. 170mm vs 6.5" on pre-SD's.

Been there, tried that; it just don't work

That's kinda what I figured, and why I didn't say they would, as I hadn't had the exposure.

Thanks for all the input. There must be a dozen used tire shops around here. Not to find one I'd trust.
