Tires for a dually

Tires on my F350 dually are a bit thin, probably have to replace them next spring.

What I'd like to get is a mild off road tire, something that's better than street tires, but not big lugs - too much noise and wear too fast for what I need. Just want to be sure I can get across a wet field without ripping it up.

With the dually rear, I'm a bit limited in the size that I can get. Anyone have any good recommendations?

You should beable to get about anything. You may have to get some spacers for the rear dual, but you should not have a problem after that.

if it's the same truck thats in your avator your on a 16" wheel so you can run 235-85R16(31.5-7.00R16)without spacers but if you want to you can run a 265-75R16(31.8-10.50R16)but you need spacers to do it right..
now for tire brands,if you want a good priced tire but a good quality look at the Dean Wildcat Tires or the Mastercraft Courser Tires but some of the best avalible are the Bridgestone,Firestone,Toyo and the BFG's.
