F350 Wheels

Post  D. Sea on January 16th 2018, 12:35 pm

I’ve been looking into getting another set of OEM Aluminum wheels for my 2012 F350 Dually but they are kind of pricey…   Nearly the same price as aftermarket wheels.  Anyone have a line on some like new OEM F350 Dually wheels?  Need 2 rears and 2 fronts.    My current wheels have a few blemishes and some corrosion around the valve stem.  Don’t think they are the original wheels…

Or maybe an alternative would be some aftermarket polished aluminum wheels.  Ideas?

It is the same from a salvage yard. For plain steel rims, they wanted more then I could by a set of chrome mags from summit. Also, when I was looking to replace a rim on my kids G6, for what I was quoted for oem new, I could buy 3 aftermarket aluminums

As for Ideas, I just restored a set of 15" ranger aluminums. Try taking a scuff pad on a right angle grinder to take the clear coat off, then respray the clear and bake for best finish.

Here is what mine looked like

After removing the clear coat, I did a primer, flat black and matte clear, then bake.

Aircraft stripper in an aerosol can makes removing the old clearcoat super easy. Spray it on a dry wheel, wait 10 minutes, hose off with a garden hose. Try it. Think you'll find out how easy it really is.

You can hit them with a buffer and some aluminum polish and they'll look better than new.

Your wheels turned out really good Alan and Travis, Thanks for the info.

The corrosion around the valve stems on the rear wheels has actually deformed the aluminum. Was looking into just getting a newer set of wheels and keep these for winter or as spares.
