1989 Dodge dually bent rims
 
Can someone tell me what size of wheel studs i have on my 1989 Dodge 350 dually as well as thread count. I wanting to mount a set of Ford rims on the front off a mid 90's F-350. Are the rims on mid 90's Fords or older Chev duallys hub-centering? My front rims are bent and i would like to go with a set of hub centering rims as mine are lug centering and have the coined stud holes.
Thanks

Ford didn't go to hub centric wheels until superdutys came out. The lug pattern also changed to a metric, 8x170 if I remember right. Your truck is 8x6.5 inches. The 90s ford wheels will work. The wheel studs are 9/16 but I can't remember the thread on first gens.

Dodge dually prior to 91 or so (with the change to internal lockouts) used 5/8 wheel studs. Your 89 should be 5/8.

Are you sure your front rims are bent? These had a problem with running off center and the fix was to use 2 regular (not flanged) lugs to center the rim while torquing it down.

Yeah the one rim has a folded over lip on the edge and the other one is warped. There also pitted and corroded. I just want to replace them with another set of steel ones that are in nice shape as well as new tires.

I got a set of ford rims but I'm not sure how to mount them correctly.
