Has anyone verified these fitments? Or is the idea here that American racing can basically make you any of their styles in a custom width/offest/diameter? 400 a wheel actually seems pretty reasonable to me.

I really like the Turbine with color coded centers. Stock is black, but I'd match to green gem for my van. Maybe even stagger the rears... wider with a deeper offset, and be able to use the super single tire option that Sprinter now has.

Looking at getting more clearance out of a Class B RV that comes standard with the Alcoas, has anybody fitted larger/taller tires to a dually rear end?

I also have a class B RV that I want larger tires for. Mine came with the standard wheels with chrome caps. So I want to know what's the biggest tire I can get on these rims or what can I get for new rims new tires

I don't understand how come Ford use the very weird 5x160 bolt pattern and not the F-150 6x135...

With the rear brakes as they are, and having to redesign the hubs from the euro platform it probably didn't make sense. Addon the fact that these things need euro metric tires and beefy wheels, keeping the separation makes some sense.

This store sell blanks wheel, either they will drill your custom bolt pattern for or you will need to take it to your local shop to have it drilled.

However, It doesn't said the wheels are load rated.

p.s. I am new to the forum, can't post link yet.

The rear is a lot easier compare to the front, it is solid axle nothing fancy about it, just swap out the whole axle and use the unit from the F-series truck. Of course there will be some modification to the mounting brackets need to be done. And the U.S. market is big enough to support the cost of minor modification like that.

The cost that Ford will save from able to share the parts with F-series truck will be way more than the R&D cost for the modification.
