    Just like the title says. Will they fit? They are aftermarket wheels on a 95 F-250. Only thing is they are 16" aluminum will they clear 14BFF with disks and 3/4 10 bolt?

    I am contemplating entering a mud bog this weekend and my buddy said I could borrow his 35" SSR's. Also any tips from you people that do mud races? 700/241/4.11's with 35's what would be the optimum gear to run in? It is a 150 ft pit.
    TIA

    I know Ford went to an 8 lug metric pattern but not sure what year they switched.

    99 is when they switched. The wheels will fit.

    Run 4 low and drive. Don't downshift unless it bogs, which in a class that low, it probably won't. Hold it to the floor but don't blow it up.

    I'm not sure what year it was, but Ford has switched to a 8 X 170mm lug pattern instead of the common 8 X 6.5". You may get lucky and his rims are the right bolt pattern, but maybe not. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I liked my old SSR's because they had great road manners, good traction,and looked good. I would say get a set for your self if thats what you want. Also they wear MUCH better than the other swampers.
