semi tires run 90 to 110 psi to me they will run stiff. 11r 22.5's are the tallest 22.5 tires I know you said free but dam thats a tall tire
(be about 40 / 42 inch tall)

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

with the steel 22.5s they are very heavy. I dont think ull get the 11r22.5s under a 2 wheel drive they are very tall. You can only go so high with a body lift and there are not many suspension lift options for 2wd 80s truck.

Personally i think it will be real hard on brakes since the wheels and tires will be really heavy. Not to mention the added weight of the adapters which are heavy by themselves.

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

you hve to remember the stock tire diameter is about 32"

Is there a additional 5" in every direction.

Also what about the offset?

You could add them but you would be body lifting, custom suspension widening the wheel tubs and the rear fenders, and may be shortening the rear axle.

All doable things but it sounds like a lot of mods.

I found a set of 19.5" bread truck rims and will be putting 225-70r19.5 on them and that will make the truck look like yours picture.

Re: How about some pics of 73-91 crew cabs

this guy was the original builder and owner for 20 years is on dieselplace

I sure miss her. It was a chic magnet till the new duallies came in to play, then I got fat and married. I'll have to find some picks when I was pulling my 28' weekend warrior fiver to the desert. Never got stuck neither..... The dude that bought it drove it from so cal to nor cal and the last i spoke to him he has to leave it at home because too manny people stiil pull him over and offer to buy it. A man can still be proud even 800 miles away

I bouugt the 81 Dually on my 21st birthday 1987. It was beat up a little. The paint and body took 6-months and nearly $10K in 1989. My old buddy Dave W. at Fabtech notched the frame just a little and in installed air bags. I also used it to tow a 28' Weekend Warrior, had a custom goosneck hitch for my truck only. Interior was OK, just ran out of money and had to move on. The engine compartment also wasn't finished. It was just a sunday driver for the last 10 years.

Enjoy, I sure miss that truck. Chicks Dug It!

A tired warrior of the 1980s in a world of low profile tires, front wheel drive, and plastic bumpers, where people stay in their houses until snowplows move the offending substance from their paths, too helpless to travel without AAA and chains and salt, clearing their windows with longhandled brushes while gently stepping around in the snow trying to stay nice and dry.
