F350 DRW/SRW wheel difference

Anyone know right offhand if the F350 DRW wheels differ from the SRWs?

If so, are the front axle or wheel offsets different on the two models?

Inquiring minds want to know.

The front wheels are offset in the front just like the back.

So what you're telling me is the wheels on a SRW and a DRW are different. And then the front axle is different? Or is the front wheel to wheel width on the DRW narrower than the SRW?

The wheels on a DRW are completely different than a SRW. The hub mounting surface on a DRW wheel sticks out beyond the wheel.

As far as the axles go, I believe the SRW and DRW axles are the same. However, a DRW has a spacer bolted to each side that makes it wider. So a DRW front axle w/spacer is considerably wider than a SRW. This enables us to run the same wheels both back and front.

Finally, the truth dawns - the spacer is the answer I was seeking - thank you.

I was unaware there was a spacer on the DRW front axle. So, I could put the spacer and the dually wheel on the front of a SWR.

Like the pics, too........

I've never known anyone that did that, but in all honesty, I don't see why you couldn't. Last time I had the front wheel off it looked as though I could've just un-bolted that spacer and put on a normal SRW wheel. So I don't see why it wouldn't work in reverse.

I've seen pictures of the reverse, on a Dodge, where a dually had SRW truck wheels on the front. Looked a little funky to me. I'm partial to the wheels sticking way out on the fronts.

Yep, was considering the DRW rims on my F250. I really like the way they look.

BareBones is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I think the primary reason the DRW's have the same wheels all around is so that you don't have to carry two different types of spares!

Yeah, thats' right. I just like the look of the offset wheel on the front. So if I should change the front wheels by adding the spacer, I should still only need one spare -the original. Should I have a flat on the front, remove the spacer and use the original spare. No?

Are you wanting to put the dually wheel on the fronts and not on the rears? I think it's gonna look weird. On a dually, they stick out in the front, but it sort of compliments how they stick out in the rear, also...

You'll have to post some pics if you do it.
