    Buy a 1 ton duallie, put a single rear wheel semi-conversion on it. They use super wide rears, only single tire rear too. Increased capacity, and not to mention they are semi-tires and will last forever. And look F'N' bad

    Those look bad ass too, but I imagine the conversion is more than I'd want to spend. You'd havve to have two different spares too.

    You sure, I thought the fronts were skinny and the rears were super fat. Got a pic? Link?

    My vote is for single wheel if you are towing short to medium distances. If you tow a long distance duals would be my choice. Dual tires support the weight and stay cooler for the long haul. IMHO.

    the real semi tire upgrade is all 6 tires still, the one they are talking about is the super wide tires that you also put on the front.

    i know that cause i know someone with an 06 dodge cummins that has the semi tires and it is 100 percent bad ass with some 7in stacks and its for sale

    here i found a vid for ya at 0.57 sec is the perfect example of the semi tires and at the beginning and at 0.22 sec is the wide tires in front and back [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peQ-zsyLpss]YouTube - sick dodge ram dually[/ame] theres more in the vid but you get the general idea. the single wide tire is pointless cause its just the same as duals

    One rim and one tire don't weight as much as a set of duals.

    Thanks for the vid max, that truck at 57 seconds is bad ass. How to they get the wheels to bolt-up? Do they change hubs or something? I'm moving into an area of auto knowledge that I'm pretty lame on. Thanks for throwing me some info.
