Back in January I ordered a set of Rickson wheels for our 2011 F350 SRW and was given an end of March possible delivery date.  Now they are saying a few more weeks.  I liked the Ricksons because they were a match to our existing wheel lug pattern and offset.

 

Does anyone have a good alternate solution?

Thanks Bedlam, I don't need the heavier capacity of the American Force or the heavier price.  The Vision wheels are a possibility but they don't have any offset which puts the center line out about 1.5 inches plus they require different lug nuts.  If Rickson doesn't come through I may have to go that way.

Are vision wheels made in china ? I have a set of Rickson wheels and tires on my 03 dodge srw and love them. Yes I too had to wait a little longer but its worth it and American made.I would stick with ricksons just my two cents.

I looked at the 19.5 rims a little and saw one price at American force the price was like 3k each since I didnt look at others there cant say there all priced like those were. Vision were more reelistic in cost for a set of 9 were 2.3k. I just cant convence my self to order them. But to get double nickel tires may have to?

Solved my problem and now have a full set of 19.5" wheels, they came attached to a 2015 F450.  Will have to change my picture.

 

For now I'll be hauling my short bed Rainier on a long bed truck, at least for a little bit.  With the capabilities of the F450 I don't expect a problem but will be considering a long bed camper soon.

I did the same with my short bed Arctic Fox on my Ram until I saved up for the Mammoth. Just make sure you put some blocks between the front of the camper and pickup bed so it does not creep forward. Depending on your front tie down location, you may find that the FastGun does not reach. You should be able to add some chain links to the camper tie down point to make up the distance the FastGun cannot extend.

Chain links were what I was thinking after I get it loaded and see just what is needed.  Thanks for the blocking heads-up, I'll build a 2x frame to fit the space.  I have the swing-out hinges for the front jacks on order.

There is always more than 1 solution to a problem.  That was thinking outside the wheel size box.
