Hello, new to this forum. Did a brief search without results

Does anyone know if other Ford OEM wheels fit the Transit? Like F150 wheels, for example? My gut tells me 'no' since they don't share a chassis, but this van is new to me, 2016 350 XLT, so I thought I'd ask more experienced folks

Nope. A quick Google search shows the F150 has a 5x135 bolt pattern. The Transit has a 5x160 bolt pattern.

Simply search Google for other vehicles' bolt patterns if you want to check others.

Transit wheels are oddballs. If you need another set of wheels, keep an eye out here, and your local Craig's. It's not uncommon for them to show up, as people "upgrade" (I don't always agree) their wheels.

What wheels do you have? I will be selling some upgraded transit wheels in the next month or two. These wheels:

Grampswrx has the standard size, OEM "easy clean" alloy wheels -- the same that I upgraded to earlier this year. Nice wheels. Mostly seen as upgrade accessories on wagons custom-ordered from Ford. Rarely seen on a cargo van like mine. See my avatar.

Oh, I see. So stock 16" diameter then?

Yes. I had cross-edited. Standard size wheels.

Edit: you might also see an older version of OEM alloy wheel, similar, but not "easy clean" -- they had small spokes or dividers out where the vent holes are.

[QUOTE="73shark, post: 1032013, member: 28113"]The original style wasn't rated for the 350. Is the new version?[/QUOTE]

Both styles are rated for the LWB 350, which both of mine are. The 350HD uses different wheels and tires when the GVWR is 9950 lbs or more(195/75).
having both, I prefer the look of the original style but the the lower maintenance of the new ones.

When I ordered my 2017 350 HR (not HD), you couldn't get the aluminum wheels (like the ones in your background van) on either the 350 or the 350HD. So I went aftermarket.

There is a thread with all the wheels available that fit the Transit. It should show up in a search. There are also a couple of sites in the UK that have a much greater selection of wheels that fit the Transit, and they ship to North America.

I was considering selling mine. I have the same ones. I want black rims. But I'm not sure if I have to get full new wheels, or how hubcaps work. I want the black, and the BFG all terrains. But trying to find lowest cost way to do so. Not even sure what the stock wheels would sell for!

You can always try painting/Plasti-Dipping your wheels. Worked great for me 30 years ago when black wheels were not so popular.

Taking the wheels to a powder coating shop is also an option.
