Yeah, I have been doing alittle research too lately. At rickson truck they will make the wheel to use our 8 lug and use proper back spacing. It might not rub it the front end is lifted an inch or so.

hmm im only bout 2 hours from them. might have to go visit. just gotta make time and money


Rims 19.5 x 6.75


front CDAH-986624-2 2x $414.98


rear outside CDAH-986624-1 2x $437.97


rear inside 1196-2118-91-G 2x 229.55


$2,165.00


tires goodyear g124 225/70r19.5 6x $213.90


$1,283.40


total $3,448.40 not much cheaper than the conversion. wonder if they would make a deal for pickup. still need some type of balancer unless you go with the match mounting at $37.50 a tire or 225 which makes your cost goto $3,673.40 plus delivery. I believe Maverick told me once that the conversion complete with shipping was around 4k.

That is true....almost 4K. But I was living in Alaska at the time and shipping is expensive. The 225/70-19.5 will not rub. Atleast they didn't on my 3500. More pics.

How did they ride ??? I heard with the available "rubber" size and spec they are riding harsh as hell ..... I mean in 19.5 there isn't alot of choices ... You have to over spec and between side wall ply and tire PSI it has to be rough ..... This is what has shy'd me away....

Sure it rode a little stiffer but thats to be expected. My truck was a work truck. Just needed the extra capacity. You only got 2 choices of 12 or 14 ply. I had the "G" rated 14 ply on mine.

Yeah, I know the ride must be alittle harsh. I am used of that though. I use to drive lower vehicles and it does not bother me. I just put shockes on to soften things up. I want to put 265/75/19.5 on my dually. I think that I will have to have key it the front so I don't rub.

update:


called rickson today and if ya want there rims gotta wait till december. But they are making a few different styles and i get a chance to see the prototypes in early november. another note if you order now you get $150 off for preordering before the nevt shipment comes in. not trying to sway anyone but it does look good

How about some 22s?


I had heard about taking 22.5 wheels and machining them to install 22's. I saw this truck this week. I didn't get to look at the sizes, but I was able to snap a quick picture. I bet his load capacity just went down the tube.
