What is backspacing difference between 06 and 00 wheels?

Can anyone tell me the difference in backspacing between the 06 wheels and our year wheels? My Lariat wheels are all corroded and the clearcoat is peeling, I have an opportunity to pick up a set of nice 06 chrome wheels with some tires for $100 and am thinking about trying those out. I know the 06s will set in a bit more, but wondering how much, or if I should find some spacers.

They will not work as we have 8x170 bolt pattern and the newer ones are 8x200 bolt pattern.

Yes they will work, he has them on his 2002 right now. Maybe they aren't from an 06 model, but pretty sure they are, I do know they are from something newer than an 04.

i beleive its 1 3/4" (or 1 1/4")difference. they will go on but they will tuck in a little and they will hit your front leaf springs. the threads on the lug nuts are different from early to late. the use of 2" spacers will put the tires where you want them to be and you wont have to cut your wheel studs. i'm using lug centric spacers, they are cheap. (approx. $210)everybody swears by hub centric spacers. they are definitly better but they are three times the money. i,ve had no problem w/ mine. i have 2009 18" oem wheels and tires on my 2000 f350.

spinella is right they will rub:
i have a 02 with 07 20" rims & they rub when you cut it deep just before your into the stops. the back spaceing difference when i messured mine was 1.75" . it doesn't usually bother me except in parking lots & some times in town.

i would think that they would be rubbing on his truck if they come of atruck with coil front suspension. i would go with 2" adapters / spacers but i would defently go with HUB centric. saying that they are alot more expensive. but wheel studs are not ment to carry the load the hub is. i got a qout from this guy for 2" hub centric ALL STEEL & i think it was right @ 600.00 shipped to my door & he could ship same or next day. i just fill out his qoute form & he called me.

They do rub on his at full lock and he does have leaf springs too. Actually after looking at the cost of spacers this isn't really going to be a great idea after all. I have fairly new tires on my 16" wheels and by the time I buy those 18" wheels for a $100 and then spacers for a couple hundred I'm in it for more $ than I want to be. I'll just buy new wheels before I do that. Thanks guys.

subscribing.

I put my 06 wheels on my 2000. Looked nice, but the wheels set in too far and looked more like the Railroad trucks than a Ford truck. My long term goal is to make my 2000 look like an 06. So far I have the lower dash panel done (with the little glovebox) and I have the upper dash bezel going in soon.

I am more worried about reliability. Will the cheapo wheel spacers hold up to constant hard use ? I use my truck as a truck and I am worried about the spacers breaking or studs breaking.

Really I think spacer issues come from poor installation. The lever on the hub isn't really changing, it's really not that much different that the dually wheel adapter on the front of the dually trucks. just offsets the mounting surface of the wheel. If you were using it to modify the actual location of the wheel it might be more to worry about. As long as it's a quality spacer (issues with thickness etc could be concern) it should be fine.
