the drives

I just think some black steel wheels would make for a great setup.

WTF? are those semi tires?

I like the idea but they're so narrow, they really look odd on a 3/4 ton pick-up.

I have the the 19.5 on my F-450 and my 93 4600 LP, 8R19.5 on the 4600 LP and 225/70/19.5 0n the F-450. I run goodyears on the rear of the 4600 and have a new set of the goodyears G647's sitting at the shop ready to put on both trucks as steer tires . Got them off another truck that upgraded to a different tire, for free- yes free i figure they would cost about 800 for the 4 of them. The guy that runs one of the local tire shops, who is a good friend of mine hooked me up with them beacuse I do so much business with him. Those drive tires are a newer model of what i have on the 4600 LP dump. I hate goodyear tires on passenger cars and trucks but love them in heavier applications.

You don't need a big fat tire for over the road applications:cry:

Yes you can get these in semi truck size or smaller for medium duty pickups.

And I wouldn't be putting them on a 3/4 ton either, I was thinking 1 ton and up.

I have noticed these types of tires coming on f-550's lately and they look like a great tire for commercial application.

Yup those are the ones.

How are they holding up?

I plan to do a lot of driving through rough conditions and what not.

I drive on new constructed roads most of the time, rocks, sticks, etc. I only have about 4000 miles on the truck so no problems yet.

(new trucks) in my life. Both times I ordered steering tires in all 6 positions. Before I took delivery I had my tire guy find me a matched set of Bandag retreads with a drive lug pattern. When I got the truck, the second thing I did was take it there and have the steering tires taken off the back and the retreads put on. I now have 4 steering axle tires ($300+ tires) for the price of the retreads - so that's worked for me.
