Blapensee, that seems like a wide tire for that wheel, how are the tires wearing any cupping?

I would love to have a slide in and hit the road. My son and I like to go hiking and with one of those you can just park and hit the trail.

I love those F450 wheels but dont like the cost of 19.5 tires. Anyone ever try recaps?

While recaps are not what they were 30-40 years ago, I have not seen them actively marketed in probably 20 years..

As long as they go through the full vulcanizing process, they should be as good as a first-line tire, albeit slightly heavier...

I ran across a video of the vulcanization process on you tube, it seemed like a good alternative to spending a lot of money on new tires. I would think finding a good carcass would be the key to a quality tire.

I think the popularity has increased as 5th wheels have gotten bigger and heavier. I went back and forth on dually or SRW. I went with it for a few reasons, payload cushion, stability, not a DD, never want more truck, lower load/ entry height into the bed, and it cost 1000 less than the SRW with 20's. We pick our new toyhauler up on March 28. Sure won't need a dually for it (13,400 GVWR with 1490 pin claimed), but more room between the trailer and bedrails and too much truck isn't a bad thing. Don't need my gooseneck anymore, so I'm picking up a dump trailer when my it sells which will fit may needs better.


Not much done to mine, Airlift 5000 ultimate bags, high idle mod, headache rack, have the airlift wireless air waiting for warm weather. Just sold my giant 27" weather guard toolbox, will be putting a tonneau cover on come spring instead since the 5th and box wouldn't play nice.





and with the new trailer (at least the trailer is clean!)





And hopefully the dump trailer will end, or slow the bed destruction from this
