Question Dually Tires???

OK, I am starting to think about tires, so I will be ready when I need to get some. I have a dually. I have been looking at these, BF Goodrich® Commercial T/A Traction.



What do yall think, and how big can I go? I would like to go a little bigger, and if I need to use a spacer, I dont think that will be a real big deal. So, what do ya think?

Hey there Logan, I have had the BFs on all my trucks for years. I think there a great tire, good mileage, great traction in snow, and wear well also. When this one needs tires, that's what I'll be putting back on. Hope that helps you out.

You will probably need spacers if you want to go wider/bigger than 235's. I have never ran the BFG's, but I'm sure they are good tires. They look good.

I'm watching you... I'll be looking soon for some new shoes on my beast. Tough to find nice skins for a dually with the narrow @ss rims. I have added a Pro-Comp leveling kit to mine and I'll try to get some pix on here so you can see the diff. I LOVE IT!! Good luck on the rubber hunt; keep me posted!!!

Yeah, I was figuring I would need some spacers. Has anyone run spacers, I know Joe has. And if you have, what size and what tire size did you go with?

Will do, yeah, kinda tough to find what you want. I would love to even go to a 265, but I am not sure what size spacer to go with. And since those are the commercials, they are less than the regular BFG A/Ts.

Thats what we call "Tar Far" LOL!

I'm running 1/4" spacers on mine because the tire I'm running have a little wider profile, but are still 235's. If you can find 'em look at some Dayton Timberline MT's. They wear good and pull hard.
