Look good but what adapters are used? I know that dodge and gm still use this pattern but the gm center is too small so I think I would have to use dodge adapters, either way I need the stock adapters to put dually wheels on a single wheel. Anybody have any?

That looks cool as hell, BTW your going to need a dually rear too, its a shorter axle.

They make adapters to make a single into a dually with the stock rear axle. I'm just concerned on how much weight they can handle, I probably won't haul more than 10000 pounds on a trailer. But am worried that the adapters won't handle the weight.

Why not just run 19.5" wheels? You can find re-treads for them through quite a few commercial truck vendors, and they don't crowd the wheel well nearly so much as those 22.5's do.

And well another reason why I wanna run 22.5 is cause I could easily get 150k miles out of them, but 19.5 would look better and a good set would last just as long. I think I'll just stick with the single wheel for a while I'm sure I could pull lots of weight with a single.
