usually the big rig guys like the look of the reall big rig tires. it's bling in a diffrent way.

My bro runs 255/70R22.5s on his '06 F350 with a leveling kit. He had trouble getting them in Canada - had to go south for them.

Now he wants super singles on the back.. works out to a 455/40R22.5 and might only be available in Europe. :(

They are steel. I also have a set of steel 19.5 that are 6 bolt with really peerrtty stainless covers and good rubber on them. My new truck has a rockwell rear that has the right pattern, just have to make some addapters to addapt the 8on 6.5 to 6 on 9 for the front axle.

I don't have one. Addapters are about $150 to spin up and the majouraty of weight will be on the rear axle anyways so a 6000lb front axle will be more than enough.

yeah, he got a 5.7 olds diesel instead. The real power diesel.


I like the look of big rig wheels, but the tires are also better too. Alot better compounds so they wear a lot better, plus they have way better load ratings. The only way i could justify it is if it was for function not fasion.

Chewtoy
12-31-2006, 04:32 PM
Personally I like the looks... as a bonus you get a tire that will last more than a few oil changes. If you hunt around for some tires, some are really agressive too. If you are having trouble finding the super singles, as said, tons of trucks come with them on front axles... just gotta look.

why not get some 15" white spoke steelies? atleast when you smash em on a rock you aren't going to cringe in fear it cracked, look decent to me. build it to be used and be strong not to look "neato" so you can chill with your homeboys.
