any one on here have 26" wheels on there 2011 f350 dually

it's been a while since i've been on here.but i would like to say me and BIG BOSS are back.BIG BOSS is a fully loaded 2011 f350 dually that is one step away from a king ranch "i don't like the saddle leather".BIG BOSS is tuxedo black w/black leather.i have to say i'm very impressed and ford has made me very proud.

i pulled a custom made trip axle weighing almost 9k lbs or more and i pulled the steepest hill i could fined and that was just out side of dunlap tn.from a dead stop BIG BOSS was eager to get it on by the time i reached the top i was at 75 mph and climbing.

i will have pics today when i get it back from the dealer for installing my sunroof.i will be doing either 24" or 26" but i am not going to lower it.i think the name BIG BOSS fits it to the T.

i will say i own several f350's because i buy trade and sell them.but i've never owned a new vehicle.BIG BOSS is the first one.i would also like to say it felt so dam good to see the sales man face. when i pulled up and looked like i was not worth looking at and had no money and paid cash for my truck which i got for 58k out the door it stickered for 61k.

i told them i will be back to buy a black 2011 gt500 svt cobra black on black and i'm going to take it straight from the show room floor to tanaka performance and get the 900 hp package.


i also test drove a 2011 dura well we will leave it at that.i wanted to put a stop to all this bull **** talking.so when i was test driving the new dura forgot the rest of it.but any way called my buddy when i hit the interstate.we went from a 30 roll and i was in manuel mode top of 2nd quick press of the pedal and then boom 3rd "sweet spot for BIG BOSS". it was game over for the dura well you know the rest.the response for BIG BOSS was insane.BIG BOSS walked off and left me and i was so PROUD to be a loser
at that point.but the dura well you know did start catching back up BUT ONLY BECAUSE BIG BOSS cuts off at 96-98 mph.

yeah i'm up at dam 4am in the mourning with this dam cold ,aches and pains.but all that will go away when i see BIG BOSS i will have pics today sometime and as i go along with the build of the gt500.

26" is the biggest dually wheel available. Im sure that someone could make a 30" wheel for you but I bet youd be looking in the 25-30,000 dollar range for a custom set of one of wheels like this.

Also for you to be able to run a 30 inch wheel you would have to lift your truck to allow it to clear, and chances are that the 30" tires that are available are not going to be in the proper weight range for the truck.
