You know it's funny. This is my 14th year in business and by no means my first truck.
Last year I bought a new W5500(isuzu) with heated mirrors, custom spec. bed, and so on.
3mos. ago I got a new GMC 2500hd.

And I find myself excited about buying a 21yr old truck.

I know exactly how you feel. I felt the same when I got mine. It must be because it is, "big". This is a "real" truck, not just a puny 1 ton.

[QUOTE=Gravel Rat;3446923]You will want to find 6 wheels and 6 tires you will want to replace those what look like 10.00-20 bias ply tires for 11R22.5 tires for one they ride better and two they are easier to find. The 22.5 dayton wheels will fit on the same spoke as 20 inch wheels.

We have one just like it. Are you saying we can put bud style rims on that truck? Please help I'm lost

You can get drop centre 22.5 dayton wheels that will replace those 20 inch dayton wheels. You have to stick with Dayton (spoke) hubs unless you change them out for hubs that accept budd wheels.

The 22.5 wheels you can get from a tire shop it will be expensive from the start but you really don't want to be running on 10.00-20 bias ply you can get 10.00R-20 which is a tube type radial but they are hard to find and most tire shops won't do snap ring wheels.

Sorry still a little lost. So we keep the spoked part of the rim on the truck and buy the outer rims "20in" . Which is where the tire is mounted to. Or buy new budd style rims with tires.

Ok what would be cheaper in the long run. 20's or new budds?

Why would the tags be expensive? Isnt it just based on the value of the truck itself?

Interesting, here they tax us based on the trucks value, and you can get them to drop the value for just about any reason! So that truck here, the tags would be around $75. year or less. I pay $140. per year on my ram, which is much newer.
