19.5 Rickson Wheels

I have a SRW F350 that will be pulling double duty swaping between a 5th wheel and 4 horse trailer. I'm looking to upgrade to the commercial truck tire and was looking at the direct bolt Rickson wheels the other option is the 10 lug semi wheels with the conversion kit.

What are you guys running and what are your thoughts? I'm not a fan of having 110psi of pressure in the semi wheels . . . scared, yes!

Just trying to get the most out of my wheels and with the weight I'm hauling it seems like a great idea. The only think I'm not sure on is that I need call Rickson cause it doesn't seem like they have many options for my 2000 F350. Currently I'm running 315x75R16's Terra Grapplers right now with a leveling kit.

19.5's are the way to go in my opinion. I pull a 53' wedge trailer everyday with my 550 and I get about 70k out of a set of tires. A little longer for the fronts if you rotate them.

Id expect that youd get about the same thing for a SRW as you wont be pulling near the same weight as I am. I will be getting the ricksons once my new 265's wear out on my 350 SRW. For the research that I have done, the benefits will outweigh the costs.

And there's nothing to be afraid of with 110 PSI. The 19.5s will run at about 100 if you get Hankooks or Goodyears. The only drawback is that most service stations do not have a compressor that will get close to that. But if your traveling most truckstops have air lines on the fuel island and those easily will go to 150+.
