[email protected] Very Nice, love the look. Already hit up my wife to do this with our 2012 F-450. We tow a fifth wheel full time, any issues there????

RogerB Zixxer,

Any update on this setup? Does your truck have 4.30 rear gears? I just ordered this same setup for my truck. I'm curious how much better driving on the highway is.

Im hoping the taller tire really knock down that gear to a more user friendly setup.

Thanks

Sportscraft Luckily you heard right, the drw's don't have the pressure sensors. Not only are they an extra step for swapping out wheels, but seems like people have nothing but problems with them any ways. You basically just learn to ignore the light when it comes on, so there really is not point to them.

Robertc82 Zixxer, Did your truck have the TPMS? I have a set of 22.5" Alcoas ordered and I am wondering if I am going to have to deal with the TPMS. I have heard that DRW don't have them and have heard that the do...

Zixxer They go past about 1-1.5 inches, not very much at all.

DieselWMB Zixxer, do the wheels/tires stick out past the dually fender in the rear? If so, by how much? Getting closer and closer to pulling the trigger on this setup!

bigtreads I am currently waiting for my set of bridgestone 726s - my adapters are here now so the fun can start as soon as the tires show

fasterfizzer A lot of guys seem to like the Sumitomo 908's for traction.

Anybody have an opinion about Bridgestone 726 EL tires.

Always liked these on the heavy truck and the 32/32 tread depth seems fit to run a long long time.

Don't know what pressures you are running but I had great luck with 60lbs in the fronts and 40lbs in the rears.

Seeing your truck makes me wish I would have got a dually. Enjoy, looks awesome!

Thanks, my first dually. I said the next truck would be one and I couldn't be happier. I had the wheels picked out in my mind before driving off the dealer lot. Told the wife she just had to look past the little wheels and have faith. Even she was amazed at the difference in look and balance. 55PSI in the fronts and 45PSI in the rear...good so far. Tire guy said they are wearing even and no cupping.

Zixxer Sumitomo ST908 Tires - I really like them. I thought it would be super rough ride but frankly its firm, not rough. I will put Sulastic springs on the back this weekend (weather premitting) to smooth it out even more.

Rear pressue at 45 and fronts at 55.

These 450's actually sit pretty level as it is, and you really seem to notice it when you put on the larger tires. When I measured mine there was only 1/2 difference.
That's correct...you get a "milled" finished inner as a default. You can go with all polished for additional charges.
