I was talking to a friend tonight and he was asking me if I'd heard anything about a wide wheel that takes a 19 inch wide tire. It's supposed to take the place of a set of duals.

Does anyone have any idea about this thing?

Two wide tires and rims for my Chev 6500 roll-off wrecker were $1700.00....needless to say I passed on that one....Michelin brand-but I can't remember the size now...I think 395R22.5 but I could be wrong....geof

He's got an IH 4700. Where did you find the rims? He said that Goodyear (or was it Goodrich?) and Michlin made the tires. He's just trying to see availability, cost, and feasibiliity. He did say that "rumor has it" that it makes an MDT ride better, but you need a semi-aggressive tread pattern or you'll go skating at the first sign of moisture on the road.

The RIMS AND TIRES would be supplied by our truck tire supplier here in Cincinnati Mid-America Tire near Milford Ohio.....

They are called super singles and are very similar to what you see on the fornt of dump trucks. They're supposed to be great for making everything ride better. The rims are expensive though. The Michelin Semi that comes to our races uses them and the guys noticed a big difference in the way the load in the trailer rode.

Now if only they would sponsor my rig
