The original "pizza cutter" wheels and tires, as pictured below, are to me the best looking. The wheels are Budd #71410, 19.5" x 5.25", and tires are 8-19.5 bias ply. Finding the wheels would take detective work, but would be worth the effort. I have a friend with a full set, not for sale, and I have the start of a set, not for sale. I'm waiting for my guy to part out the truck to get the rest. A full set was on Craigs List in NH a few months ago, and a partial set was on ebay about the same time. Stu

from what i understand from Bill, "aka numberdummy", if your F250 has the wide lip front fenders it came with 16in tires. if you have the skinny lip front fenders your F250 came with either 17.5 or 19.5 wheels. if you have the wide lip i doubt 19.5s would clear. might be worth checking out. and welcome to FTE!

I don't recall saying anything about a lip, there's no parts catalog reference for a lip, either. You also have the applications wrong.

COTB-16005-A Right & COTB-16006-A Left .. Front Fenders

1959/60 F100 with 15 or 16" wheels / F250/350 with 16 or 17.5" wheels.

1953/97 F250, 1967/97 F350, 1975/2012 E250/350 have 8 lug wheels on a 6.50" bolt circle.

AFAIK, you can use any of these 16" wheels on your F250 4WD. Most of these wheels after 1967 are not split rims aka "widow makers."

If your F250 4WD has hubcaps on the rear wheels (some came with them, some did not), after 1967, Ford changed the way hubcaps are mounted.

And, Ford did not offer front hubcaps for 4WD's until 1967.

Sorry Bill, not trying to put words in your mouth. i was under the impression that there were two styles of front fenders. one with a smaller wheel opening and a wide lip or flare like on a F100. And another with a larger opening with a narrow lip or flare like i have on my 60 F250 4x4. After looking at the pics Stu posted i can see that they had a fender with a wide opening and the wider flare or lip. Seems they made at least three styles of front fenders in 1960 but i have no idea now if mine are stock or if they came off a truck bigger than a F250.
