19.5's

Just getting opions on the direct bolt on 19.5's. The tires are only 12 ply and you can still get them from 31" to 35". Seem to alot cheaper but not alot to choose from on styles.

Yes, you are limited a bit on selection on 19.5" tires. Granted they will get you better wear mileage, but I have also heard the ride isn't as good as a normal truck(10-ply/e-rated).

Personally I'd like to find a set of 19.5" bolt on's but all 6 wheels are aluminum. Those two extra steel wheels in back add ALOT of rotational weight to move.

I have Hankook G 245x65x19.5 on mine they don't ride rough if you don't over inflate them. They really don't need any more air than your current E rated tires. I have 50K on mine and look to get at least that much more out of them. I have the American Force direct bolt on rims that are polished on both sides I rotate the aluminum rims front to rear ever 5K and the inner steels side to side they are wearing pretty even.

Eagle alloy has the 4-19.5's for $1000. Then the 2 steels added. I am going to be able to fit the 245 under my truck. I am going to get these with the tax refund coming in the next few weeks. I will look at the hankook tires.

245's should fit nicely they are only 33. Hankook DH01 they are nice traction tire not to noisy on the road but do hum a little. I also filled them with Dyna Beads for balance, about 10 Oz each. Some people don't like beads I haven't had a problem with them.

I sold a set of 8 lug wheels to a guy last week and he swears by them. He was a semi truck driver and said that would be the way to go also.
