Has anyone done the Single or Dual rear wheel conversion of putting 225/19.5 rims and tires on in place of the standard wheels and tires on an F-350?
I am curious if the claims of tire life, handling, stability, and drivablity improvments are true. It is an expensive changeover on just hear say. A different truck is in my future and by looking at the tire ratings I may able to get by with a SRW F-350 converted to 19.5's as opposed to going with a DRW F-350. Any real input would be beneficial, thanks.
I put 19.5 on my crew cab dually F-350 (1974 model) it cost me about 2000.00 for the complete change over. This was 6 years ago or so and I average about 75,000 to 85,000 per set and the 14 ply rating on them make hauling heavy or towing a dream also when it is empty it is a nightmare of a ride. It bounces at every expansion strip on the road the ride is horrible.
