Double wide rims.

I want to replace dually wheels with a single wide wheel but it's on a one ton truck. Anybody seen one?

Thanks.

Yep. The guy who owns BRE (Beck Racing Engines) had them on his dually.

Be warned...Super Singles SUCK bigtime.. at least on the big trucks they do... My company ran them for about a month, then took them off. If you do alot of heavy hauling, like a 5th wheel... Youve got half the # of sidewalls to provide side/side support when cornering, they do good on the snow thou, not so good in the rain.

Id personally never put them on ANYTHING i own..

Thanks guys,

This truck will be used in the sand. Anybody tried them in soft sand? The truck won't go without getting stuck now with the duals on it.

They are costly but cool............... they are called floats.

Chromewheel.com Picture Gallery

that pic is of a 455 but you can get them in a 325.

A few years ago hot rodders where puting them on the back of thier duallys.
Those where weld wheels, probalbly a lot cheeper if you can still find them.

I think they'll do good in the sand, low air pressure and a wider footprint.
