super singles

Looking to put super singles on my truck bought a set with adapters and the tires were too big with my lift. They are 385/65 22.5 which measures to about a 43 and I have an 8 " lift in the front and 11.5 in the back. If I lifted the front another 2 inches would I be able to fit with out getting cutout flares or shoukd I just find a smaller tire

I don't think that 44s are going to fit with an 8 inch lift. I'm thnking that you'd need at least a 12 inch lift. I'd also recommend a 5.13 gear with that tire, too.

Hit the nail on the head right there. i have 13 in of lift with 44s and i still have to have a small bump stop to prevent rubbing. I also have 5.13s and i can run 65 mph at 2500 rpms in 6th gear so i dont drive the interstate unless i have to so maybe you would be closer to 4.88s since those super singles are alot lighter than my 44 boggers

So really I should get smaller tires for the super singles and get the front up another two inches to get me ten inches front 11 rear and try to get auper singles in more of a 40"size.

If you have 8 inches front and 11 inches rear and it sits right (which it should because they had no lift front and 2.5 or 3.5 blocks rear from Ford), then 10 inch front lift and 11 inch rear would make it nose high.

Before running a 40 inch tire, Super Single or otherwise, I'd check with a custom lift manufacturer to see what they recommend.

To find the proper gear, divide the new tire by the OEM tire: 40/31.5=1.27
Multiply the rate of change by old gear: 3.73x1.27=4.73.

A 4.56 or 4.88 would work there. If you're not towing/hauling, 4.56 would work out best for you.

The truck sits 3 inches higher in the rear right now. So if I put spacers and an adjustable track bar I coukd get the front up to 10 " which woukd give me a slight rake to it without too much. I'm just not having too much luck finding super single tires by looking online.

I have a 10 inch lift on my f250 and all i could clear were 39.5s (tried 40s and they would not fit). Also I have an International Cxt with super singles 445/65r22.5 and I can tell you that it is hell trying to find them for a decent price if you are looking at the ones with a rugged tread pattern. heavytruckparts.net has used ones from salvage yards that are sometimes decent prices. Ebay sometimes has a couple.
if you are going to buy them new, the major brands with nice tread patterns are 700 and up last time i checked.

Theres a guy on the forums that did super singles without much lift but had to do some trimming. I think it would take quite a bit of lift to clear ss' s without damage/rubbing.
I think the 40" ss' s would be the best route imo.
