Question Rim size?

I have a 04 F-150 Fx4 and I have the 18 in. rims, I know I can put 17 in. rims but I want to know the smallest rim I can fit with out changing brakes or anything like that. Could I at least get way with 16.5 in. rims?
If any of you have experence trying to do this, any comments would be great,
thanks,
Matt

I thought 16 and 16.5 inch Ford rims are 8 lug for F250 and 350 etc.?

I just want a new set, not ford. They sell 16.5 rims in 5, 6, and 8 lug and In our bolt pattern, but I was wondering If I can use some 16.5 in. rims, and fit them over my brakes, roters, and calipers.

Thanks,
Matt

17 rims are the smallest, and I don't think anyone makes anything smaller with the same 6 bolt pattern.
It's a new design.
On that FX-4 it should come stock with 32 inch tires, so going up to 33 would not be noticable.

There are a lot of 17 inch tires that are big enough, and you can get cheap 17 inch rims rather easily. The local pennysaver/recycler or even E-bay will have rims for 50-150 for four, if you don't care about the tires. I have purchased 18 inch rims/tires almost new for 300 a set. I have seen 17's with good tires go for 150.

Get some super cheap 17 'take offs' from a private party, tire shop, dealer, etc. And toss some big tires on them.
Good luck,
Chris

Thanks Chris,
I'll be trying to get some 17x9 rims. And some 33 in.super swampers would be nice. I'll be looking in to prices more.
