    Re: DRW vs SRW

    How much weight are we talking?

    Not really planning to ever drive this truck unloaded.

    What tire did you find to be best on your truck?

    Do they make an 18" 10 bolt?

    Are you looking at 3500's or 4500's? I thought this was about dually one tons? I never went over a 235 on my dually as I didn't want the back end to float as much. I ran a few different tires and my overall preference was duratracs. Like stated earlier run a more aggressive tire than you think you need on the dually. My only complaint was a bit of cupping on the outside lugs on the steers so I upped my rotation frequency.

    Well I was looking at the 350 but the turning radius is way better on the 450........

    So I think I am gonna go 450.

    I pull a water trailer with 3000 gallon tank which is a bit much for my srw.

    Just gotta figure out a winter tire setup for the 450, but I will always either have two.sled on the deck or a 30ft 4 place.

    ah ok, so limited to 19.5's then. If that's the case those are a decent tire. I've never owned or driven a non cab-chassis F450 so I can't say much about them. I'd probably still try and keep the tires skinny so a 225 not a 245 in the 19.5.

    Yeah definitely don't want to much surface area. I wonder how little air I could run in them during the winter.

    They must of been add ons than. My 2017 5500 does not have those and the factory rubber is horrible. The 550 I had had the xdís and i really liked them,
