Ford 16 Wheels

Hi all I'm looking at purchasing a Newmar class A Kountry Star from 1996 it has a tag axle with 16 inch 235/85 tires on it and all 8 tires need to be replaced as it has 18 year old Michelins on it currently I have locate 4 same size tires used on the web on 10 bolt Ford rims not sure on what age the rims are but the tires are 2.5 years old from a ford 350

My question is will these rims mount to a F53 chassis it sure would help out my pocket book if they do if they are a direct fit I could use them on the drive axle the asking price is $125 per tire and wheel

All thoughts appreciated

It may depend a lot on the year of the Ford truck.
My son has a 2002 F350 with dual tires and we had decided that his rims would not fit the F53 or the other way around. Sorry I do not remember why for sure but I think it may have had something to do with the center hole.

Also 2.5 years old is getting a little old for me. I think most change the tires out after four years.
I give my old ones to my son to use on his truck.

Do not forget you can also get a discount on Michelin tires if you join and belong to the "Family Motor Coach Assoc.".

Thanks for the input on the rims I went to a local heavy truck shop and they did mention the same thing that ford likes to change the center hole size I think it has a lot to do who is the rear end manufacture its a 1996 Newmar and needs 8 new tires trti axle as its still has the factory installed Michelins on it there is a Goodyear plant in this area and I know someone that works there I think the staff get a $ 40 I believe per tire coupon plus I checked out the Goodyear web site and they also have a mail in rebate in place right now of up to a 100 dollars total max 6 tires . im just trying to trim a few dollars off my start up cost as its A Newmar Kountry Star im looking at to purchase and really don't want to spend more than is needed on my first A class purchase as the coach has some other problems its also needs a re-roof and here a Safety( full mechanical is a must) plus E-test for emission to put on the road
Thanks for Jumping in

Why do the pick up rims have to fit your rig? If they are a good buy why not mount "the new to you tires" on your existing MH rims. With that being said, I personally would not buy a used tire except in an emergency.
