I hate hubcaps. I'm looking for a set of custom wheels for my RV that sits on a Ford E450 Chassis. Standard 16" wheels won't fit due the oversize calipers on RVs an susrprisingly Discount Tire has not been able to help.
Any sources for a nice set of 16" would be appreciated.

We sprayed the rim with the bright silver paint and it's surprisingly satisfying.

So, what fits? 17s, 18s?
I thought pretty much all E350/450 chassis had and have 16” wheels.
Regardless, any aftermarket wheel mfg that makes wheels for dually pickups will very likely have what your looking for in several styles. There are a plethora of online wheel retailers.
You may need to search for F350 dually wheels. Although I think those have been 17s (stock size) for years now.
It can be a challenge if you don’t see your direct application by vehicle model. Get the diameter, width , offset and lug pattern of your OE wheels and search by that size maybe.

Or if your only looking to buy from a storefront business, try other tire shops that sell a lot of aftermarket wheels, or 4wd shops like 4wheelparts.

Maybe a nice quality set of stainless steel simulators? I've always thought those looked good.

But get the bolt on type. Look great & no fear of them popping off & rolling down the road.

I ordered from them too, the Dura-Bright version of the Alcoa wheels last spring. Per our bathroom scale, an Alcoa wheel weighs 20 pounds less than a stock Ford steel wheel.....63 pounds versus 83 pounds with a new Michelin Agilis CrossClimate tire mounted. Here they are on our rig.

This is exactly the setup I just put on ours. I have the same wheels on my Dodge Dually since 2004 just not in durabright.

Thanks to everyone who replied.
