Depending on how new, the 2500HD will be 8 on metric while the 68 will be 8 on standard.

Wrong, Ford is the only one who has gone metric. GM wheels are still 8 on 6.5" for the bolt circle. The only thing that has changed is the hub bore, as the new wheels are hub-centric. I've seen 01+ 2500HD wheels on 73-87 style trucks, not sure about 67-72.

They should work. Only difference will be they have about a half inch more backspacing than the stock 16.5's did. Being a little bit wider they should make up for that.

I've got a set of 2500HD aluminum 16x7's sitting here that need to be blasted and powder coated before I will run them. They clear the hubs on my 14FF and Dana 60.
