19.5 f600 rims pictures

Hello, I have a set of 19.5s and it looks like ill have to use 8-19.5 tires. They will be about 5 inches shorter than the original 8.25-20s that are on there. I dont want the truck to look goofy, do you guys have any pics with your f600 and 19.5s?

Well, that pretty much does it for me! That truck looks anything but goofy. Now the character to it's left, the jury is still out on, specially considering he looks like a younger version of me........

If it makes you feel any better, the standard tire on the F5 was a 6.50x20. 7.00 and 7.50x20's were optional, and with the 2 speed rear option only, 8.25x20's were optional on the rear with 7.50x20's on the front. Info obtained from the salesman's binder book. 19.5's would be my choice.

Here's a member's F-4 with a set of 19.5s he got from me. An F-4, 5, or 6 will all look the same with them. An 8R19.5" is 33.5" tall while the 8.25x20" is 38". If you are going to a tubeless wheel your two tire options are the 8R19.5" or 9R22.5" which will match or exceed the diameter of the 8.25"x20". Stu

Agree, that's why I saved the picture. I'd have to go back through emails to say for sure who's truck it is. Maybe he'll speak up. Stu
