So who is going 10 lug swap? or Big Rig wheels and tires?

Ok there was an auto show near me that I didn't get to go to and on the news they had that the 10 lug swap was for big trucks that tow alot or don't tow but want more miles on tires. I think they said they got about 200,000 miles on the tires. This is for SRW

1. So I wonder what the offset in price is worth it?
2. Also how big are the tires? 35''-37'' just a guess?
3. Cost upfront to do the complete swap?

You didn't mention weather you're talking about a SRW, or a Dually. American Force Wheels, put packages together for this sort of project. I had looked into it, however even just running the 19.5" rims, the tire sizes aren't that popular, if you manage to get 200k out of them you'll never recover your investment. Their website answered most of my questions, but I'm sure there's cheaper joints out there.

Sorry I added to the original post it was SRW.

For almost $7,000.00 I think I can get wheels and tires for less for the next 200,000 miles but after that is where it might be cheaper.
