anyone have an OBS (Dually, preferably) with 37"s?

so i know a guy who has a full set of 22.5"s with tires, and im considering picking them up. But, i dont want to lift my truck, the most im willing to do is level the front. im running 235/85's right now, so like 31"ish... Can the 37"s fit?

Anyone else put 19.5"s or 22.5"s on their OBS Dually?

definitely... i like the look of them on the newer trucks, obviously a higher load range is a plus. my rear tires are pretty damn bald, the fronts have less than 50% so i figure its a good time to be shopping.

not sure how i feel about paying $800 for the spacers though.

AFAIK there is only one vendor for the adapters. My uncle works at a steel place and could probably crank out something that looks like an adapter, but im not sure how balanced they would be.

Honestly, with adaptors your definatly gonna wanna go big brand, they have a warrenty, wouldn't wanna hit a rut and whole assembly go rolling off kause your adaptor snapped. And I have 33's on my 250, but it sets higher than your 2wd dually, so I would suggest a small lift, atleast 4" imho if you wanna keep it low, otherwise buy them and get lower profile tires
