8 lug rims from a Dodge fit Ford?
« on: April 30, 2007, 01:38:25 PM »
I'm parting out a 3/4 ton 1987 4x4 pick up that has Danas front and rear. A guy wants some rims for a Ford dually with 8 lug, and I'm uncertain if he can use these? Anyone know for sure?
Thanks, mike

i do not know about the dually set-up but i do know a set of 3/4 ton 8 lug rims from a dodge will fit on a standard ford 8-lug rim pattern.

dad has a set of dodge 8-lug rims on his 1970 3/4 ton ford

Here's the "lowdown." 8 lug Dodge wheels will fit from '61 on, unless Dodge has recently gone "German." Ford is pretty much the same, '60's on, as long as  the wheels have a 6-1/2" bolt diameter. Duellies for Dodge are '69-'93. My '68 D300 originally was the last year for the 6 lug duellie, and it's '94 on, unless, once again, "German." The Dodge Duelie will fit the '67-'87 F350, with only one concern. The alignment pins on the rear hub are in different locations, bot most wheels have an oval hole to work on both trucks. These wheels are called coined lugcentric. "Volcano and crater," I call them, dimple and pimple. The load is transfered through the lugnut connection. The late model wheels are hubcentric, the wheels center hole fit tight against the hub, and flarenuts simple hold the wheel tight against the hub. Dodge's '94 and up fits Ford's '88 to '98, I do believe. Ford went metric with a larger bolt diameter, 170 MM, I'm running Ford 250 wheels on my '68 D300 with a '70 rear axle. Anyone with late model wheels will need to swap out the flarenuts for "old school" common lugnuts.

I think you are right. Ford changed for sure, and I think it was in 98.  Try explaining that to a drunk idiot at 3am.
