big rig kit

Okay I am about to get mad, who makes a big rig wheel kit for the f250? Where do I get it from and how much lift do I have to have, I am thinking I am leaning towards the 22.5 considering what I have read about the 19.5......Do the semi tires reallly last that long?

Check out this web site. American Force, Big Dually Wheels and Rims -- Custom Dually Wheels For Big Trucks They have the wheels and info you are looking for. I would use the info and buy the wheels used from ebay or a local semi repair shop. I would not spend over a $100 on a used wheel, unless it has been repolished. New wheels from a semi dealer, when I priced them were under $300 a wheel new. Hope this helps.

You don't have to have a dually, to run the big wheels, you just need to buy the super singles, and the right adaptors.

Unfortunately you can't just buy adapters and mount big rig wheels on your trucks. The wheels have to be machined still. Give Trevor Lockhart at
Tennessee Wheel & Tire (931-962-4646) a call. He specializes in dually wheels. You're looking at around like 3400 for 4 wheels and tires or 4200 for 6.

you can buy just adapters all day on ebay, But you need to make sure they are for the wheel pattern of the wheel you have. adapters alone will run 6-700 bucks on e-bay

freds makes adaptors, they are the only one i would use.
WheelAdapter.com - Wheel Spacers, Wheel Adapters, Used Wheels

22's will make your truck ride really rough-ruff. even 19.5's ride rough!
but you can get 22 inch rims cheaper usually.

According to what I was told the actual rig tires can last up to 250k. They are also 36.6 inches tall or 40.2 inches tall.
