Long story short:
I put a 2.5" level kit on my 2012 Raptor, bought a set of custom Rotoform Wheels 17" Raptor specific. Got a set of Nittos 12.50 X37 17

They kinda rub when tight turning and the wifey says" no go". I hate to lose money on the tires. so if I can get a set of 17 wheels that would fit my Tremor I could run the 37 x 12.50s and get her a set of 35 x 12.50s for the Raptor.

I am just not sure if 17" wheels would be the way to go or even fit my F350 massive brakes.

No they won’t fit...will hit callipers.
Hardly enough room for the 18’s.

You sure? This is a picture from another forum on an F250. Maybe the 350 brake system is larger but I don't think it is. I've always thought they had the same brakes.

I think Carli confirmed that 17” wheels fit. Check their website and YouTube videos

That's how tight the stock 18" wheels are to the caliper on my F350.....pretty snug.

Correct. I’ve been on their site all AM learning about suspension. Here is the link to 17s.

so like anything the back space needs to be checked:

" So long as the recommended wheel specifications are followed – 17×9 with 4.75″ – 5.0″ backspace – we appear to be in the clear!"
