What are they like doing some light wheeling? Snow, fsring, booze cruising.

Do the duals pack with snow and loose traction?
Pack with rocks and smash your wheel wells?
Plowing twice the footprint in snow?

I found in the snow the other year I was plowing snow with fronts and rears while following Chris and that was with my stock tires

FSRing isn't bad, but isn't the smoothest ride the rear ends are pretty hard suspension rides better with weight on it. But still go to Stave doing 90[36](sometimes while drifting a bronco on my trailer through the ditch at the Zajac corner, or so I was told by the bronco owner behind me :D, I didnt feel a thing:dontknow:)

Rocks get stuck between duals something you need to regularly check
Or it will waste the sidewalls on the tires

Duallies pack with snow, and you can't air them down if you were doing a long frs trip

u can air them down even 20 lbs rides nicer than 35 lol just not low enough that the sidewalls touch obv u can add spacers between the duals to get u a little more room to play around 2 ...

biggest issue i ran into in snow was the rear outside wheels track further out than the fronts it's ok if your cutting fresh but if its rutted and refrozen the back end was constantly sliding in and out of the ruts so u were driving in "drift mode" a lot of the time fun for the first few k but annoying after a while ...

I guess if your running narrower tires, or spacers, I've seen many that are really close together lol

So it seems like they are not ideal for mild wheeling :confused0006:

They work better if you park them and take your toys out because you buy them to pull heavy.

That is the plan. It's the getting to camp, wood runs, truck hunting I'm thinking about

Is a SRW a better option. ....

Yes unless your honky and take half the house with.
A dually limits you to tire size unless you run spacers
Or aftermarket rims with more offset
And you have to replace two more tires when that time comes
I needed the dually to haul the racecar trailer 30 foot enclosed
And the big camper I had
Although the stability of the dually is nice on the hiway with a load on
Or going to hale with the camper lol

It sure adds way more payload capacity
