Hello all,


I have just purchased a 1992 F250 4x4 Super cab and am supposed to just use it for an around the acreage work truck - but I don't think I will be able to just leave it the way it is.

So first order of business is a complete tune up and changing of all fluids and greasing of everything I can grease and checking everything I can check, but after that, I will do some cosmetic work.

To that end, I was wondering where I would be able to source a set of the stock alloy rims like in the attached picture


Any ideas? I live by Carvel, which is just west of Edmonton, and would prefer something relatively local....anybody have any luck with this sort of thing from wreckers like Central Auto Parts or Lund Truck Parts, or Pick your part?

welcome to fordtough.ca,there should be lots of recyclers with parts for these older trucks,the barginfinder is also a good place to find parts.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

Welcome.

Bargain finders and auto wreckers would be my recommendations.

Good luck.

There are some aftermarket companys thet make wheels like in the pic you attched, pro comp alloys has some that are close. Used rims may be a problem if they were in a accident, but if you can find some refurbished rims that would be a bonus.
