super swamper and rim question

i have a 94 f350 dually with the powerstroke diesel motor.

I plan on lifting it 6 inch.

I am thinking of putting 35 or 36 inch super swampers that are 12.5 inch wide but i was told that our stock dually 16x6 rim is to narrow. I can not find any wider rims to do this. how are you guys putting super swampers on your dually's? Can I use the stock rims? Do i have to buy custom rims? Where can i get these rims to do this? and what tire size should i go for with a 6 inch lift. Any advise or opinions would be great!

I am running Rockstars which I think are a 1/2 inch wider and have no problems. One of my cousins has 38 x15 x 17 boggers and all he has is a 4" spacer in the rear. BTW i am not running a spacer on my truck.With 6" I would go with at least a 38 and trim what ever rubs.

Im running 37/12.50/17 Super Swamper SSRs on my stock wheels with 2 inch spacers in the rear and a 8 inch lift. I've had no problems at all.

You will definatly need the 2 inch spacer in the rear. You might even need a one inch spacer in the front. I'm not real sure on an obs. Cant wait to see pics!

so i talked to the tire and rim place today and they will not put a 36x12.5x16 tire on a 16x6 rim. they said the rim was to narrow.

So now i guess my question is where can i buy rims that are 8-10 inches wide to fit my dually?

I don't know of anybody that makes a 10 inch wheel for dually. Who are you trying to get to mount those tires? keep looking around somebody wiil do it for you. I just had a new set put on yesterday and nobody ever asked any questions.

If you are set on running swampers, have you ever heard of the swamper LTB? these are designed for duallys. and vehicles with narrow tires. I see they make a 34x10.50 for 15, 16, and 17 inch rims.....the smallest rim you can fit a 12.50 comfortably on is a 8 inch wide wheel...these 10.50's ought to fit well on the 6 inch wheel
