There's a picture of a superduty with super singles I believe in the pic thread in 6.0s.

I can't believe you just heard of them. Tractor/trailers have been running them for years.

I have never seen them on trucks around here, im sure i have but i guess i never noticed and im not into anything tractor/trailer wise so it never came up. but its definitely a cool idea for a f-450

I guess I noticed because I drove over the road. Really bad idea on big rigs IMO.

why do you say that? less mass to get moving and stop and aren't the weight ratings fairly similar?

One flat tire and you're screwed. At least with duals you could limp it to a shop. Won't ruin a wheel with duals if one blows either.

Well not if its dual axle setup the other axle will take the weight. probably not as good as duals if you have singles though like u said

Semis are notorious for blowouts due to the amount of miles they run. The proof is on the sides of the road. I wouldn't want super singles on mine if I was hauling as many miles as they do each year.

For our little Superduties, I think they would be pretty cool though.
