What is needed for 22" on dually

What needs to be done to clear 22" wheels on a dually? Everything I read says a standard 22" "semi" wheel will be too wide to clear stock rear fenders. I know Tennessee wheel tires makes a townasty wheel that is supposed to clear but damn they really only come in one style. I know that wider fenders are available but a lot of truck I see out there have original paint. Are all of the trucks I see on instagram.. using a narrowed axle?

C&C rear ends are narrower & allow using the milled 22's.

The Tow Nastys allow using 22's @ the outer wheel position w/factory 16's @ the inner position on a stock width dually rear end & are supposed to fit under the fender lip (the disclaimer is that all set-ups are different so there is no absolute). As you noted, they only come in one style.

Thats what I originally thought about the C&C rear but Trevor @ TWNT told me I would have issues with the wheels hitting the leaf springs. So you think all of these trucks I'm seeing are using a C&C axle or narrowed stock axle?

I think most are swapping to a c20 suburban or truck rearend.
Check out @lowboymotorsports on Instagram.
He's done a bunch of these and has good pics.
Under bed c-notch, flip kit and relocated rear shocks.
I believe they also "face" both rear wheels to lessen the overall width.

From what I found, the difference in the C20 rear end is the hub assembly & the rear ends are the same width. Apparently the dual rear hub assembly tucks the wheels more than the single (from what I read). And yes, facing the wheels helps keeping things tucked under the OE width dually fender.

Also check w/site member 75dually. He actually did the swap on his square.

I believe @lowboymotorsports uses a modified “flat face” wheels in some applications
