removing inner dually for winter driving?

Saw a dodge dually on the highway with the inner duals removed and got me thinking, is there anything special a guy need to do as I haven't had my rear duals off yet to see what the studs look like. Is there enough thread to allow removing the inner duals? Or is a spacer required? Just a thought.

only thing you need to watch for is the treads could be slightly damaged from the rims reacting against them. May or may not be. But you should have plenty of thread.

I would run a die over the threads just to be sure they are fine.

I wouldn't do this, it off-sets the load on the berrings, I wouldn't recomend it unless you had to... I did this once, because I got a flat and had no spare... but wouldn't do it unless you had to, to keep things ballanced...

Totally agree with this but I assumed the OP was aware of that. I suppose the only way to do this correctly would be to get a Regular SRW wheel that is a Hub Piloted wheel to use in place of the duals.

I ran a single in the back for s little while and it wore the tire funny because of the bearing. I wouldn't do t. My truck got around fine in the snow with just A/T tires on it. And even better with the mt tires on it.

I've been told that in a pinch you can run the inner only without damage, running outer only adds stress to the bearings, I have had no personal experience with this and is just what I've been told.

I'd run the iinner only vs running the outer only
