REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
F-Super Duty models require the use of center-pilot type wheels.
- Set the parking brake and block the opposite wheel.
- On trucks with an automatic transmission, place the selector lever in PARK. On trucks with a manual transmission, place the transmission in REVERSE.
- If equipped, remove the wheel cover.
- Break loose the lug nuts.
- Raise the truck until the tire is clear of the ground.
- Remove the lug nuts and remove the wheel(s).
- Clean the wheel lugs and brake drum or hub of all foreign material.
- Mount the inner wheel on the hub with the dished (concave) side inward. Align the wheel with the small indexing hole-located in the wheel between the stud holes-with the alignment pin on the hub. Make sure that the wheel is flush against the hub.
- Install the outer wheel so that the protruding (convex) side is flush against the inner wheel. Make sure that the alignment pin is protruding through the wheel index hole.
- Hand-tighten the lug nuts.
- Using the lug wrench, tighten all the lugs, in a crisscross fashion until they are snug.
- Lower the truck. Tighten the nuts, in the sequence shown, to 140 ft. lbs. (190 Nm)
Check the wheels for any damage. They must be replaced if they are bent, dented, heavily rusted, have elongated bolt holes, or have excessive lateral or radial run-out. Wheels with excessive run-out may cause a high-speed vehicle vibration.
Replacement wheels must be of the same load capacity, diameter, width, offset and mounting configuration as the original wheels. Using the wrong wheels may affect wheel bearing life, ground and tire clearance, or speedometer and odometer calibrations.
