fat wheel dually

idk if any body has asked or mentioned this before but i am starting to see more and more of the single fat wheels on the back of tractor trailers. i personally think they are frekin awsome. i was wondering if any body has seen them, or there was any companys that make them that would fit on a dually pickup

most major tire companies make them michelin,bridgestone,goodyear,etc.they are not cheap.only problem is those tires are drive or trailer position not steer position applications,yes they are super singles.they do make steer application super singles for dump trucks,mixers,cranes,etc but those are referred to as floats more than ss

the dodge would look good with duals in the rear.the sd fcdp did looked pretty good i think partly because the wheel well is round with a similar profile of the tire

floats are def the way to go on a dump truck, if your going to do super single do them on a single tire 4x4 like this
