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