2018 F-350 Dually Roasts Massive 40-inch Rollers: Tire Smokin’ Tuesday

By -

Tuned PowerStroke V8 makes monster torque, allowing this F-350 to effortlessly smoke the tires.

This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the jussa xlt YouTube channel and it features a wicked 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty FX4 Dually riding on a huge wheel and tire package. Many trucks would be hard-pressed to spin that much tire with a single-rear-wheel setup, but thanks to the gobs of torque created by what is almost certainly a tuned PowerStroke V8, this big Ford truck roasts those rear tires with ease.

Super Super Duty

In stock form, a 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the SuperCrew cab, the long bed and dual rear wheels is a pretty big truck. However, the owner of this diesel machine wanted it to be even bigger, so he added a lift kit that made enough room to fit a set of 22-inch Fuel Maverick wheels wrapped in 40-inch-tall tires. Mind you, those are proper truck tires, not some low-profile fitment with a thin sidewall.

Between the size of the wheels, the weight of the wheel and tire package and the amount of rubber on the road, many trucks would have a hard time spinning these tires on loose footing. Fortunately, this F-350 is powered by the 6.7-liter PowerStroke V8 diesel engine and based on the amount of soot pouring from the exhaust, it is safe to assume that it has at least a little more power than it did when stock.

The Burnout

As the video begins, the F-350 comes to a stop in frame and as the engine speed begins to rise, we can see the suspension of the truck stiffen as the front tires work to hold the beast in place. At first, all of the smoke is black, as the engine sprays soot out of the exhaust and although the tires are spinning, there is no smoke coming off of them.

A few seconds later, the exhaust smoke thins and white smoke begins to roll off of the huge tires. After about 10 seconds of smoking the tires in place, the F-350 creeps forward, painting four distinct black stripes on the ground.

Sadly, we cannot hear the truck in action, as it was filmed by a drone that does not record sound, so the video has a song playing over it. If you aren’t into modern rap music, the video is best-enjoyed on mute, but the music is fitting for the video.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
