First I'd like to say hi, I'm planning my next truck purchase and I'm going to have a lot of questions over the next few months. I'm hoping you can help. I do a lot of research on line but I have a hard time finding certain specific info I'm looking for.
I'm wondering if anyone has run spacers on the rear axle of a dually so they can run srw when they don't need the load capacity. 90% of the time I'll never come close to hauling the kind of weight that you need drw for, but we're planning to purchase a truck camper and I would also just like to have the load capacity in case I suddenly need to haul my entire house somewhere. lol
I've looked at Rickson Wheel Manufacturing
and they are nice but this is going to be a personal toy as well and I was wanting a better selection of AT and mud tires, you can't air down for sand with them and I feel better with the wider track when I have a load with a high center of gravity.(like a truck camper) I can't find any company that lists anything close to a weight capacity on spacers, but the front factory spacers are good for at least 3k each. I was wondering if it would be possible to use a set of those on the rear. From what I've found online they are about 3 3/4" but I believe you need close to 6 inches to set a dually wheel close to center on the axle bearings.
I'm looking at other options but they all involve having 2 sets of wheels and tires. And NO I haven't figured out what to do about fenders when I'm going back and forth between srw and drw.
So any ideas on that would be nice as well.
Thanks for the help.
