finally needed tires after 10 years!

finally needed tires on my 00 f-350 with 24.5's. i had 285/75's before and they lasted about 10 years. i did not wear them out by mileage but by age they started to deteriorate. the new tires are 11r24.5's which are a few inch's larger. noticeable difference in gearing! may actually be time to finally swap the gearing!

It hooks up to a trailer just fine. Custom 1-off hitch of course. Pulled 15k lb enclosed trailer from Philly to Vegas when I moved.
It's ok Dan, big trucks aren't for everyone

Although I'm not a huge fan of giant lifts your truck looks great, a small lift is all I want, you going to have the wheels designed with all the money your saving in tires
