OEM Superduty wheels on a quigley conversion?

I've currently got KMC Monsters on my 08 SMB but I've never liked the monsters and I'm looking for other options. With the quigley conversion and spacers my lugs are now 8x170, which means I could use oem f250/f350 takeoffs.

Here's current:


And here's the type of OEM wheels I'm looking at:


Has anyone done this before, and is the oem spacing ok from a stance perspective? I'm not sure what the backspacing on my current wheels are either.

Re: OEM Superduty wheels on a quigley conversion?

I have Factory F-Series wheels on my van. Typically, the factory wheels have more backspacing and don't stick out as far as aftermarket wheels. I have a Salem-Kroger conversion with an 05 F350 front axle and 1.625" rear adapters.

Re: OEM Superduty wheels on a quigley conversion?

Great info, thanks. I've got a rear spacer I assume from Quigley and it appears that it's the same size as the one you have. These wheels are really tucked under the fenders as is, I don't want to go any more narrow than what I have.

I'm going to pull the trigger on them and do some testing with the option to resell if they're not what I want.

OEM Superduty wheels on a quigley conversion?

I have the exact same wheels. I used a 1" spacer in the back. I love my setup and personally like the look of the wheels. The factory ford wheels are built to a high standard I've been told by a few wheel guys.

Don't forget to check maximum admissible load per wheel... That could be a problem with some wheels designed for trucks since your rig weighs certainly not far from 10'000 lbs if not more.

Cool, do you have any pictures? I'm specifically concerned that the wheels will not have enough backspacing with my flares and look too narrow with 0 offset. From what I can tell my current wheels are 9" width and -12mm offset which makes the difference over 1" more backspacing than the OEM 8" wide Ford super duty wheels. Thanks.
