dually tires

I am looking for some tires that are better suited for winter conditions/offroad.
I am running 245/70R19.5

Got any suggestions?

If I upgrade to 22" rims what tire size would be the best to get?

thanks,
Andrew

Re: dually tires

I dont want to start a war but.... are you serious?????

get what ever tires you like or think you like or look good or are expensive or are cheap.... whatever the hell floats your boat!!

for a off road tire you prolly want a offroad tire and for a winter tire you prolly want a winter terrain tire... for all the above you prolly want a "ALL TERRAIN" tire...

Re: dually tires

I was searching on the interweb but couldnt find any 245/70/19.5 AT or Offroad tires

I was looking for some personal experience from someone as you know not all tires are created equal. I will just have to take a visit to the local tire shop

Re: dually tires

finally a very good decision!! yes yes, go visit the tire shop... I think they might be able to help you...hope so!

I doubt they will make a true offroad tire (like a mud tire) in the truck sizes (19.5, 22.5, 24.5, etc) but I know they have a more aggresive highway tread version that you see on alot of Semi's....

Re: dually tires

Remember the more of a mud tire you get the worse it will preform in the snow & ice. A normal A/T tire will tend to work better in the snow & they can work alright in light mud too. You aren't going to bog that pig are you?

Re: dually tires

You also have to pay attention to tire width on a dually. If you get them two fat they will rub together like a fat chicks thighs. Really hard on sidewalls.

Re: dually tires

yea I think 265's are the limit and then after that you need spacers...

on a 350 anyway... the 550 19.5's might be different....

I know 235 is stock & 245s will fit but I honestly think 265s on a stock dually without spacers is really pushing it. Remember if you put a good load on the back that they will streach out on the sides like Andy said.
