super singles on the rear!

hey everyone i have been a huge tight wad for a while now saving for super singles 22.5" alcoas and a 4" lift. And finally the day is here. Only problem is that the super singles are harder to find then i thought. Do you pro's know of any good websites to buy them from or any way to come across them?? Also i found some that are 14" wide is this the normal width? or do they make different widths? thanks for all the help guys i hope to here back from you soon. Peace

22.5 is what I usually search for, is this what your looking for or something different?

I toyed with the idea before I bought my truck but after talking to a few truckers I know they all said the same thing concerning the use of super singles on a semi, they said sure they work OK on the trailer but they don't like them on the tractor, apparently they get squirrely when wet, hydroplaning is an issue. I would be cautious. And yes eBay is your best bet, but try Craigslist or Midwest Wheel. I don't know where your located but I have done business with them before and they are a reputable company. Good luck!

2008 (Job 1) F250 King ranch 4x4, snow plow prep package with 2.5 level. Black Maxx, B&W Diehard platinums. Dieselsite coolant and transmission filters, NCU Motorsports/amsoil oil bypass kit. Turbo blankets, 5.5 PMF traction
Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

Let me know how your choice goes? I would be interested in the future because of beach use. Tires would need to be able to air up and down.

Angry Air pressure

Jonesy, just keep in mind if you go 19.5 or 22.5 they are commercial and have no safety bead in the rim. What this means to you is if you air them down they pop off the bead easier. While I don't know exactly how low u can get away with I personally would not go below 30-35 P.S.I. for the last 15 years I have been running service trucks with 19.5's and it seems like every time a tire gets low the slightest hit they pop off the bead. Good luck!
