Questions that make me go Ö:confused0006:


What tire pressure do you run them on the street:confused:


What tire pressure do you run them on the gravel roads:confused:


What do you use to take off the inner vale stem cap:confused:


With a portable pump what do you use to fill your inner tire?:confused:

get longer valve stems for the inner tire. for pressure run max when at max load and less as load decreases to prevent over pressure and crowning

I got some longer stems for my inners but I still can't get to them. Because of that I just run high pressure all the time.

off highway vehicles have extended metal stems so you can get to them

Wonder if bus stems would work. :confused0006:

thinkin hes more concerned about traction and flats.

with lower tire press the rears are more susceptible
to trapping rocks between them and then taking out the sidewalls
and you are still putting a load on the truck with the trailer

In snow I let some air out of the outside dual , that way Im getting more weight on the inside one , more traction because less footprint.

That's only running around empty

:confused0006: please educate us more on how that works ???

More weight on the one tire makes for better traction

I got long ones for bead locks at Kal tire and they had really long ones that are really long

If your worried about traction ten add more weight. I use to run mine an 60psi like the skin said its a rough ride no matter what psi your at

wonder if motorhome valve stem extensions would work on truck duallys

I hear valve extenders are prone to breaking and because I take my truck on a lot of gravel roads I would be concerned about rocks between the tires causing the vales to fail.


I was more concerned about tire pressure and rocks. I want to air down not so much for the ride but so I don’t slice up my tires from the sharp rocks

how much space is between the tires at the closest point

In mud and sand maybe but not in snow and ice.

tire pressure depends if you are running commercial tires that take 80-100 psi

tire guys have a long valve stem tool that will hold a cap on the other end if they arent blessed with long fingers

dually need a straight commercial chuck not an angled passenger tire chuck
usually they are serated to stay on the stem while filling

I got long ones for bead locks at Kal tire and they had really long ones that are really long

How long ??

Really really long?

Or just extra long ?:confused0006:

not as simple as just changing valve stems
it's a new truck and has tire pressure sensors
and you can't just leave them out bunch of legal bs to do with safety
and not shure but the guy that designed the wheels needs a kick in the nuts

Try these for your inside tire valve stem. Does not protrude past the tire like an extension valve cap does and is not prone to leaks or breaks if/when something gets caught in between the tires.

Why do all old guys believe this? My 18" wide tires would tell ya different and when I air em down to 5 pounds or less they get even better.
Before you go on about ohh thats deep snow, ponder this. Why are winter tires the same size as summer tires for any given car? Never heard a kal tire guy say Ohh get 155's for your winters and 255's for the summer...
The traction has far less to do with size but instead rubber composition and tread design and you need surface area to put that to work.

shure but how much can you air them down before they rub
not enough to make a difference
look how little room is between a dually tire on a pickup
I wanted to go up a size on mine but can't because the tire is 1/2 in wider as well as taller
1/4 inch more bulge either side and they would rub together with the camper on
bet you couldn't get to 30 lbs before they rub together
and the whole theory of wider better why does a dually have more traction issues in snow than a single tire truck then ???

Some locomotives raise 2 of their 6 axles to gain better traction......:vroam:
