19.5" wheels for 8-lug x 6.5" bolt pattern?

Do 19.5" wheels for 8-lug x 6.5" bolt pattern wheels exist? Are any made? I'd like to upgrade my 86' f350 dually. Have plenty of space/clearance between my 235/85/16 tires and actual wheel well(s).

Chris

Certain years of the F450, see here and google "19.5 8 lug..." and find this and more:

I thought some of the uhaul and FedEx trucks had the standard 8 lug pattern.
Or I'm not sure if you can use them as duals but the railroad trucks had it also

I've heard the older heavy duty Chevys had them too. But the center hole needs to be enlarged slightly...

If you find a good source, let me know. I'm also looking for some.

I am curios as to why you would want to go to a heavier wheel and tire setup?

Long enough to get old, hard, slippery and full of cracks. If you run 25-30k+ per year, that would be a way to go.

If not, you will never make your investment back. Do the math on the wheel & tire costs up front vs. replacing your existing tires once a few years from now. What are we talking, 2 to 1 max life difference, without considering age and non-tread wear issues?

You all must have had different experiances with 19.5 tires than. All the one I have run burn up in 20k, SUCK on anything other than dry pavement, ride like crap and cost and arm and a leg

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll see them listed for our trucks. They're pricey though, if you were to buy new and with tires it's going to cost about $2500.00 - 3000.00 with shipping. I looked into them for the added load capacity since I have a truck camper, but the cost detered me. Many people that haul heavy loads use them because of tread life and longevity. I also stayed away due to the 19.5" rims and all xx.5" have a different type of bead that can't be aired down for 4-wheeling or beach use.

I like the look of a larger diameter wheel. But the look of a polished wheel or with a SS wheel simulator. I looked up that wheel chart and there is only one steel wheel available for one chevy application and it's $170 each. I doubt that I'm going to be able to find a SS wheel simulator that's 8-lug x 6.5".

Maybe go round 2 with redrilled wheel pattern or find the newer 99' and up ford axles for my rig. I'm building an old 61' chevy short bus with F350 4x4 running gear. Have stock wheels and tires now, but looking to upgrade to what I like in the future, instead of buying new 16" tires.

I've been on a pizza cutter obsession lately.
Noticed these classic steel rims on a Dodge Powerwagon a few weeks ago.



Now I'm checking junkyards and evaluating 8-170mm --> 8-6.5" adapters for my '99 F350.
Is anyone making these w/steel rims anymore? Here's a close-up,


I do really like the classic utility truck/ *****'s look. Cheers.

Swap in a superduty van rear hub and rotor, then call quigly or quadratec and get 4x4 van front wheel bearings and rotors.
That's the safest way to get the older bolt pattern

I had been wondering if that would work. Do you know of anyone that has actually done this? Thanks.
