Well they wouldn't refuse me, since my family owns a trucking company that buys tires from them for over 100 trucks.

They never do like it though when i ask them to rotate the tires and leave the wheels where there at. They act like its a big deal to dismount and mount all of the tires. They do it every day all day long for new tires so why not 6 more to rotate mine. It all pays the same.

Have You Seen This?

Xtreme - Episodes


In conjunction with WD-40 Company, Xtreme 4x4 takes an ’08 GMC 1 ton dually, and transforms it into the ultimate work truck – which you can bid on! Bumpers, lift kit, power enhancers, bigger fuel cell are just the beginning of this installation which is capped off with 22 inch big rig tires. After this truck goes on the road promoting WD-40’s “Last Straw Tour,” it will be auctioned off for charity with the proceeds going to Rebuilding Together and their Veteran’s Housing Program. Ian and Jessi pitch in - not only by building this big rig, but by volunteering at a “rebuild” event at a local veteran’s

I'm going to put it in the Pic battle!

Beat this one!

super singles are junk! we had about 5 trucks with them and we had nothing but problems. you blow the tire and you are stuck and you need a new rim.

Other than looking cool, Converting a Dually would not be efficient as you would not be able to rotate for wear.
do you know where a guy could lokk for more info on this setup thanks

A long way to go before a reliable network exists for Tire Service and supply on these.

Here is a nice little upgrade for a service center, only $27k, what a bargain!

I use to pull a three axle dump trailer with them. Good luck stopping in the rain! 78,000 lbs. and the trailer would go sideways every time and that's not even a panic stop.

the super singles are already starting to go away since in the long run they aren't safe compared to the duals,alot of the reasons were mentioned and if you ever changed one with the machine pictured above then yes you'll hate seeing a semi with singles pull into your lot but i have done them..actualy my oldest brother holds the record for the fastest tire change on a semi,8Drives and 2 steers from start to finish in 50 min.s..
just orderd a set of 18X10 wheels for the dually and going to run 33-15.50R18 LR E on the rear and a 33-10.50R18 LR E on the front..


rotating tires isn't the problem but if you have to dismount all ofem and then remount and balance them it is kinda sicking and realy when i think about it not sure why other then your redoing your work but we still do them all day long..kinda like redsigning a built home using the same materials,not a fair comparison but you get the idea.
