Hi all

I hit some road debris last night and really destroyed my right rear outer rim...
I pulled the wheel off this morning and started looking and googling for replacements. Not much info that I could find.

The front and rear wheels, inner and outer look very similar... is there a difference ? Even a quick measurement with a tape and they all appear the same.

Its a 2000 E350 Cut Van chassis wth a 16 foot box... is very handy for moving various projects about...

16 inch 8 lug rims.... If they are the same I'll get a spare and some better tire changing tools in the truck....

Thanks.. Mike B

aluminum wheels

My F350 came with 4 aluminum wheels and 2 steel wheels and a steel spare. the aluminum wheels are different, the side that shows is polished , they work front or back, just not always the shinny side out. I have never tried to see if you can have 2 aluminum wheels together on the back.

rim straightening

There used to be a local tire shop that had a rim straightening machine, clamps and a hydralic jack. I have straightened farm equipment and tractor wheels with a big hammer but would buy a replacement for on the road vehicles, trailers.
