My new rims

Hi all:
A little bit frustrated today. My new Toyo Open Country AT 2's and American Racing ATX rims were to be installed today. However, the bolt pattern which was supposed to be 8x170 did not fit. So I spent 3 hours waiting to find this out. I was told the 2011 E-250 has a "Chevy" bolt pattern which is different.
Sounds crazy to me BUT they measured my bolt pattern and sure enuf it is not 8x170. So they are getting 5 new rims with the correct bolt pattern. Scheduled for this Friday.

Has anyone had his problem?

Re: My new rims

All E-Series 8 lug vans left the factory 8 x 6.5".

Some vans are converted to 8 x 170mm when 4x4 is added.

Only the F-Series P/U's were switched to 8 x 170mm when the Super Duty was introduced.
