wheels interchangeable?

Anyone know if the wheels off of a 2001 f250 will fit an 86 f250?

Sorry, they definitely will not fit. Ford changed their 8 lug bolt circles to metric in 1999 so here is the bolt circle guideline for

Ford F-250/350 single rear wheel:

1997-Back = 8-6.5" bolt circle
1999-up = 8-170MM bolt circle.


Ford F-350 Duallys as follows:

1997-Back = 8-6.5" bolt circle
1999-2004 = 8-170MM bolt circle
2005-up = 8-200MM bolt circle

ford did not market a F250 or F350 truck in 98. you either got one tagged as a 97, or a 99

they only made gas F250s in 1998 (i think marked up to '99 light duty or something). but they use the same body as the new er F150 it looks kinda weird. My Dads co. has 2 of them.

Okay I have one for the gurus here and this looks like the perfect thread for it. What would be needed to convert a single rear wheel to a dually. It seems to me all I would have to do is get a set of hubs off a dually and install them on my current sterling. I can get a set of dually hubs and rims for next to nothing from a yard I deal with. Any insight would be appreciated.

i'm thinking unless you've got a 250 that's got more clearance than mine at the springs, it just ain't gonna work without a heap of mods. thought the same thing on my '90 and took duelly rim and turned it backwards on the rear. unless it had some skinny rubber on it, there wasn't enough room for suspension movement. plus, the skinny rubber kinda defeats the purpose of a dual rear setup, don't it?

Pretty much requires getting the full-width axle from an F350 to do it right. Might as well get the bed while you're at it - otherwise you have to cut a huge chunk of sheetmetal off the outer skin on each side and install the fiberglass flares to accomodate the dual wheels - so they don't rub your wheelwell openings.

That's what was done to the second truck listed in my signature - rear axle and bed swapped in from an F350. Everything fits perfect with pretty much no modifications....

Well I already have the F-350 to begin with. It's a 1987 F-350 with a sterling rear axle. Did the duallies use a wider axle to start with? I can't seal a company making two different axles housings one for a single rear wheel app and one for a dually app.

don't know about ford, but chevy sure did. had a 3/4 ton with a single wheel 1-ton rear axle and suspension under it. !@%#$# thing rode like stink, too. that's why i got a ford now with a reasonable suspension under it.

I have two Suburbans with one ton axles rom the factory. I have run all ove the east coast with the 93 pulling one trailer or another to the point no one recognizes the truck unless it has a trailer which is bad because it's bright yellow. The other is a 92 which is becoming the traveling truck as it has 3.73 gears in it instead of 4.10s like the 93.
