Josh and or Tulsa


Could you please take a picture and post it of looking down the side of the truck so I could see how much if any the wheels stick out past the fenders. I like your set up but im concerned about sand, salt, snow, rocks, mud and so on getting thrown out onto the truck.


Thx Diesel Dragon


PS Whats the overall diameter of the tires and does it screw up the speedo?Edited by: Diesel Dragon

Yeah a nice rear shot (low) would be good to actually see the width of the tires and spacing between the duals.

i will first address tire rotation, we dont have to, these tires run to almost 200,000 miles, yes i said 200,000 miles, not 50,000 like regular tires. the wear is so slow rotating is useless. my size is 245r 19.5, they are 33.5" tall and the speedo is of by 4miles per hour at 65mph. they are past my fenders by 2" in the rear, however i have the putco full running board system, thats flaps in the rear and front of the rear tires. i do go in the snow and dont have any problems, but i dont go 4 wheelin, truck cost to much for that, a 5000.00 jeep would be more fun anyway. for heartbeat the rear spacing is built in the rims, the measurment is standard, the bigger tire you get, the bigger rim you get and the spacing grows with the rim. so no matter what size you get, you always have around 2 to 3" between the tires. hope this helps. john

200,000 miles...... what are the tires made out of

run them before?

Anyone considering this conversion from Chrome Wheel, I would suggest going with steel inner wheels on the rear and 4 aluminum wheels with Centamatic wheel balancers and never rotate.. I had 6 aluminum and tried rotating. The polished wheel on the inside dual got so blasted with dirt, rocks and road debris that the polish was gone. It looked like crap on the front. I tried everything to bring the nice polish back except having them machine polished again. The balancers from www.centramatic.com will allow you to get full use (200K) from the tires without rotating. They work. I used them.











Josh, that does look awesome. I liked my Michelins I had. I had 225/70-19.5 G 14 ply on my truck.


Here's a link as to how the kit looks prior to being installed for those interested. http://www.picturetrail.com/gallery/view?p=999&gid=1012182&uid=437876Edited by: Maverick

Nice looking truck, I am currently waiting for Alcoa to offer the 19.5 wheel with the standard GM pattern of 8.


Did you have to lift the front at all. If so it does not look like much. Did you just crank the bars up?


Thanks for the answers in adavnce.

Very Very nice....
I appreciate the rear shot. 200K on tires and no balancing, now that's an argument I can use to get a set. Care to share total investment.......tires & wheels?

mine were 5500.00 for the conversion, joshz06 were 4000.00. mine is higher for three reasons, first, i bought mine two years ago and the price has come down some. second i run xde tires i beleive joshz06 has xze, they are a little cheaper. i also have alcoa's center trim they are 100.00 per wheel. they are not required, you can use the trim that comes with the set, there is nothing bad about it, however the alcoa's trim is incredible looking compared to the regular trim. that is why the trim comes free in the kit. but alcoa's will cost you big time to get.


p.s. it might seem like a lot of money, but sit down and add up how many tires you are going to buy for your dually for the length of time you will own it. and 4000.00 isn't that much. you can buy tires 700.00 dollars at a time or you can buy one set and never buy any more. i say this because i have 379,000 on my last diesel and i don't remember how many sets of tires i bought, but it was more than 4000.00 dollars worth.
