Excursion on 26s

One of my buddies just got an excursion (7.3) and wants to run 26s. (not my style but whatever)
Is this safe? I looked at the service descriptions for 26" tires and the most is 2337lbs. per tire.
Let me know what you guys think. I don't think it is safe but I may be wrong.

Re: Excursion on 26s

I wouldnt for many reasons, safety being one of them. Excursions are HEAVY, especially if you put anything in the back or towing i can see it going all bad...

Re: Excursion on 26s

That would be retarded. Now is he running 26's with low pros or is he running Super Singles?

I meet a guy with a Dodge Dually Mega Cab that was having a custom set of 26' made for his truck. Don't think lowered would look good on an Ex.

Re: Excursion on 26s

super singles only come in 22.5" or you can cut them down to 22's

here is one of our customers on 22.5's super singles cut down to 22's



26's on an excursion can look good, I am a fan of big wheels though..

here is one on 26's they dont look god awful, they actually fit the fender well
