Lowered on 16ís

I have the opportunity to pick up a set of black 16inch procomp wheels for a very good price. Iíd like to see any pictures that show a 10th gen f150 lowered on 16ís (donít have to be black or procomps) before I fork out the cash.

Thanks for your time and assistance.

I noticed that when I did a search for photos. I just recently picked up a 2001 Super Crew thatís dropped a few inches and has chrome 18ís. Iím not to fond of chrome and I actually like the look of the 1998 Nascar Edition F150. That one had black 16ís and in my opinion looked nice. I havenít seen a Super Crew lowered on 16ís though. What I would like is to get a set of FX4 wheels but it seems like those are hard to come by.

I prefer the thicker rubber versus more wheel and rubber bands. It also rides much, much better.

These are my favorite rims of that model era:

Thatís kind of what I was going for. I like the bigger rims but blacked out 16ís on some decent rubber I think will look good too. The rims your talking about are all over the Los Angeles Craigslist page and people want big money for them. So much so that I would be better off grabbing a set of custom wheels. I donít get it were they made of platinum?

The stock size on 10th generation was 16" with 17" as an option.

Those "chrome" wheels came stock on my 03 XL with trim package. There should be a ton of them, and the painted steel equivalents, in junkyards. I have a set of the painted ones with winter tires on them, I believe the wheels came off a XL work truck.



If you find a set of these, just sand them and repaint them whatever color you want. It's the center caps that are hard to find, and the center caps are NOT interchangeable with the ones for the chrome wheels.

I would like to find the 98 NASCAR edition wheels or the 17Ē FX4 wheels, but those are hard to come by in the salvage yard.

Patience my friend, patience. They do pop up on eBay. You just need to have a habit of looking.

Just like I've been helping a friend look for a small metal lathe. There are so many people out there selling them, but it's having the patience to find the "right" one, with plenty of tools, accurate runout, etc. Everyday, I'm on my local CL, and other venues looking. I've turned it into a habit in the past few months.

Same deal with this...

why would you downgrade in size?

my truck originally had 17s..... a PO put on 16" weld mountain crushers..... one of them got destroyed somehow, well I don't know. I just know I have 3 wheels and another can't be found anywhere.....

The truck I bought is a one owner and came with chrome 18ís. Iím not into the chrome look and I have a guy willing to sell me a set of black 16Ē pro comps for $100. However if they donít look good I wonít put them on and they will just sit in my garage or backyard forever. I like the look of the trucks I posted above but I havenít seen a Super Crew with 16ís.
