Looking for A/T or M/T 19.5s.. hard to find?

I just bought a 2002 F550 duelly with Stock 19.5s. The tires currenlty on it are 14-ply highways tires (very hard). I use my truck as a weekender to pull my boat and I want a better looking tire. I think the wheels look awesome and would like something a little meatier than what is currenlty on it.. Any suggestions?? Thanks guys!!

It would be cheaper to buy new wheels and tires. seriously

My dealer had a set in last week and i was looking at them. Their sidewalls are about 1" thick! And he told me that are extremely hard to get on and balanced correctly. Plus their twice as expensive as normal tires, due to all the extra rubber.

You're not gonna find anything "soft" for a 19.5" rim.

550's were purpose built for pulling and working, therefore the hard tires were a necessity . You could probably find a nice set of take-offs from someone here, or CL

Oh it definitely pulls, and I do understand the purpose of these vehicles, oh and I also did not buy it for its fuel economy. I just think that the builders of our "top 3" should not make a wheel that only 3 or 4 types of tires will fit. Just my opinion.. But I will deal with it for now and look at getting new wheels and tires in the future.. Thanks for the comment!!
