18984 F250 Wheel interchange with other brands ( Chevrolet, GMC, Dodge )

I have seen some posts on this subject but am still confused.. I am looking for some wheels with tires mounted on them and want to know what fits my 1994 F250 . Is there a chart or list somewhere ( web link ?) - Thanks

You have an 8 lug right? I did some research on this, but don't remember all the numbers off the top of my head. I do remember the Dodge trucks (it was an older generation) used a metric 8 lug, that when converted to standard was the same as the ford 8 lug. Go on a few web sites that specialize in rims, and one of them is bound to have the popular lug patterns. Then you just compare a few and see what you get. That's how I found the Dodge.

80-97 f250 and 350 use a 8 on 6.5 pattern
80-current dodge use a 8 0n 6.5 pattern
80-current chevy use a 8 on 6.5 pattern

-Now FORD fell off their rocker in 98 and went to a 8 on 170mm
-chevy stock wheels have a smaller center hub and will not fit a ford without machining
Dodge wheels will fit as far as i know

As for aftermarket wheel, i believe they are all the same for 8 on 6.5 pattern

Yes but the hub center changed somewhere along the line and would require machining as well

The original split rims that came off of it (my 63 F250 4x) went on a 1978 Ford E250 after I pulled the 460/C6 combo out of it and I took those rims and passed them on to a friend who needed a winter set for his chevy.

Aftermarket Eagle Alloys 1459's are now on my 63, which came off a 87 chevy. If you are looking for stock take-offs, as stated, some chevy rims will need the center machined, if you are going aftermarket, most of them come with the larger hole, I would peruse the ol' craigslist in and around your area, I have bought 2 sets, W/tires on craigslist each set of 4 for 2 bills.
