Nope... bolt circle is different - Ford is 135mm (~5.3"), Dodge is 5.5". You could force them on but they'd start enlarging the bolt holes to the inside, and could lead to lug failure and the whole wheel falling off.

I purchased a new F250 2008, ran and drove good smooth also. I took it to the dealer for 10k service, rotated the tires, I drove it home it was vibrating,, they ford have to date replaced the tires three times, from the ones that came on i it,,,to good year then mechiluem, Been working on it for weeks and have failed to repair it. They did say the center hole in the wheels were not centered and it would have to be balanced using the lug holes only, bought the tool to do that,, the truck still shaking... Anyone with a fix please write..they seem to have given up..

#21 of 25 Tire choices for FX4
Sep 18, 2009 (2:50 pm)
Hello. I bought a used 2004 F-150 FX4. It is in mint condition, but the tires are down to 6/32. I live in the Upper Midwest and I am thinking it is time for some new feet. My question is currently, there are LT275 65 R18's on there. It is not my primary vehicle, and I don't haul a boat, trailer, camper. Do I still need the LT series, or can I get by with a different series? I don't want junk, but if they don't have to be LT, perhaps I can save a few bucks. Also, would there be differential/ratio issues with getting a different series of tire? Opinions and advise are welcome.
#22 of 25 2006 F 350 Replacement Tires
Sep 10, 2010 (3:48 pm)
I have a 2006 F-350 King Ranch. It has 4 full-size doors, 8' bed with dual rear wheels and is a 4 X 4. The existing tires are Toyo Open Country AT and the size is LT265/70/17. I had the two front tires replaced today and after they were mounted, I was informed that they had put on P265/70/17. I am aware of the differences between the LT and P designation, but are they acceptable to be on the front of my truck. I plan on replacing the rear tires in a couple weeks with the LT265/70/17. I tow a 37' fifth wheel trailer, up to 800 miles, every couple months. Thank You! Pat

First, 4X4's need to identical tires in all wheel positions. Identical means same size, make, model, and state of wear. To do otherwise is to risk damage to your drivetrain - very expensive.
Second, "P" type tires are NOT acceptable replacements for "LT" type tires. You should discontinue doing business with anyone who would make this mistake.
You need to take care of this right away. Not in a couple of weeks - NOW!

Completely agree. As the owner of a 4x4 dually, I wouldn't set foot in a shop that told me P-metric tires were sufficient substitutions for LT-metric applications... especially E load rated LT tires.
Harmon0406, in the case of your F-350, those P-tires are overloaded and will overheat very quickly, putting you at serious risk for a front tire blowout.
When in doubt, check the sticker on the door jamb for the correct size - including weight class and load rating.

#25 of 25 FROM 16 " TO 17" TIRES
Oct 25, 2011 (4:45 pm)
I have an 2003 F-150 2 Wheel drive, the Goodyear tires i used in the past are just not getting any traction. I am looking to get away from the passenger tires. I am willing to go to an 17" rim and tires if they will work. Thanks Ron...
