Yeah I have an 06 and previous to owning this one I'd never heard of it, basically it is a F-150 HD or a light duty F-250. Upgraded (from standard F-150) suspension, rear end ,7 lug wheels, trans cooler etc.

new to the forum, but not to Ford trucks, figured this was as good as any threads to throw this question out. I have a 2013 F-150 crew cab with the 8200GVWR package. It currently has 245/75-17's, of course Load E, but was wondering about opinions from others jumping up to 265/70-17's sticking with the Load E of course, not sure the TPS would like otherwise. Having had 275/60-17's on my '02 F-150 2WD, which was around 1000+ lighter, it sure feels like these 245's are under-sized for the truck. Any opinions about what tire worked good for you guys?

But there are 17x8 and 17x7 7-bolt (7x150mm) wheels online (ebay has some) and I believe I have 16x7 7x150 on my truck.
I'm not looking for a fancy wheel upgrade, I need to replace mine because rust has been killing them (leaks, polished cover fell off, rust is so bad I'm starting to doubt the integrity of the wheels themselves). I may even check some local junk yards but these wheels seem to be more common with newer F150s and I want to make sure they are compatible with my older f250
Dave I'm currently having the exact same problems with my 98 F-250. Take a look.

Every one is like this, the covers fell off and this is under.
