Dually to SRW?

Since I no longer haul heavy trailers with my truck I have been thinking about some cosmetic mods. One I am considering is retaining the dually fenders but using one wide wheel and tire in there rather than the duals.

I've seen several big rigs with single wide tires in the rear and on more than a few trailers lately and kind of like the look. Anyone done this or seen this on an OBS dually? How did it look or work?

Thanks

Super singles are expensive. I thought about it and saw the price of a single tire and hit the x to close out the window.

that,but most were phantom duallys.1/2 ton trucks with fenders and 15x14 wheels on the rear 15x4,5,6,8 fronts



op,you will most likely have to lift the rear of your truck to fit the super singles.most are in the 38in height range,some a little taller
