Default Anyone interested in a set of front steer tires and wheels?

I have a gorgeous set of Accuride polished aluminum front wheels with Michelin 295/75/22.5 XZE Energy's on them. I think I am going to put floats on the front. They have 20k miles on them and I think the tires were bought in 2011. Does $700 + shipping sound fair for the wheels and tires mounted?

I just went out in the shop and took pics and they are 295 8 22.5 Michelin XZA2 Energy. Lug nuts, lug covers and center caps are not included. They are showing 15/32's on them. I am in Mt Juliet Tn 10 mils east of Nashville.

Sounds like a great price to me. I wish they were 11R22.5 I'd buy them.

I took a set of 315's mounted on Alcoa Durabrite rims with a little more wear than that and got $600 for the pair.
I installed a pair of 365/70R22.5 XZA and new 10.5" wide Durabrite rims. I think next time I would use a different offset wheel to get a little more steering angle.
Also installed a larger capacity spring pack while doing this modification. What is your front axle weight?
Good luck with your endeavor.

I was going to do the 12.25 wide dura brite wheels. I will have to look up the tire size again that I figured out. I am at 14k#'s on the front axle. I think I am good on the front spring pack. Any feedback on the durabrite wheels?

No problem on the date codes. Somebody just needs to tell me which letters to get.

I think the date code is a 4 digit number, the first two are the week so they should be less than 53, and the last two are the last two of the year. And I don't think there are any other numbers or letters around them. So if you see something like "1612" that would mean it was made in the 16th week of 2012. I think. And they might be only on one side of the tire. But I'm not sure about any of this.

You hit it right on the head, Bob. Here is what a date code looks like:

If you are at 14k why not use a 9" rim and upgrade to 315/80R22.5 tires (9090 lb per)
I see that there are 2 different offsets to the 12.25 rim and those big floats are usually speed rated at 65 mph.
PM me if you want
