    Default Chevy 8 x 6.5 fit F 350?

    Here’s me question, I have an 2007 new body style 2500 HD with the 5097 wheels, I’ve looked for a newer GM 2500 HD or a 3500 HD With single rear wheels to build a trailer but no luck. So I found a 95 F350 with single rear wheels, both trucks have the 8 x 6.5 bolt pattern. Here is the problem, I do not have the Ford to me shop yet, I have measured but I’m not sure that me Chevy 5097 wheels will go over the Ford hub, or what ever you call the thing that holds the axles in? The Ford measures right at 4.750 could B a few thousands bigger? The hole in the middle of the Chevy 5097, measures 4.625 to 4.750 it maybe a few thou smaller? I do not have the 350 frame and rear end home yet, I do not really want to have to remove one of me wheels to see if it will fit or not!
    Does Anyone Know For Sure if the 5097 wheel WILL FIT Over the 350 hub Or Not?

    Thanks Carl

    Hi Carl
    I haven't tried an 07 type wheel on a ford, but the ford wheels used to have the biggest center hole.
    The ford wheels fit over the gm hubs no problem.
    I have an 04 HD GMC and have ford wheels on my winter tires because the tires and wheels came off a 99 ford. I had to take an angle grinder to the corners of the calipers to keep them from rubbing.Not much must took the corners down.
    You can take a grinder to the center hole and open it up a bit.
    In the old days i saw a lot of holes opened up with a cutting torch around here.
    If you go with aftermarket wheels they will all fit.
