I don’t have a dually, but went from the factory 16’s, to 17’s, and now I’m on 18’s. It seems that the tire manufacturers have moved to 18’s and 20’s for heavy load ratings. I liked my 17’s, but I couldn’t find a high enough load capacity in a 35” tire that was E1 rated. Everything was D load rated. My 18’s are rated at over 4000lbs per tire at 80psi.

You can easily get tires for 17s rated for more than the truck is rated for.

Imo 19.5s don't make much sense unless you run the 245s or bigger and 14+ ply. The typical 225s that come on a lot of the factory 450s and 550s aren't really rated for any more than a good e rated tire for a 16 or 17.

Im over 19.5. They were handy when i had the utility body and could burn a set of 235/80/16 off in 6months but i just dont need them any more. They ride harsh, and ive had a grand total of 2months combined of smooth ride in the last 3 years.
$2200 is a bargain, the last 3 550s I ordered tires for were $3k, but those were 245s with either 14 or 16 ply.

How about whatever Ford puts on their new base F-250s? They're a little taller at 245/75, but those trucks have some high payload numbers, and you may be able to score a set of takeoffs.

That's not a bad idea, it's usually cheap to find factory take offs.

What is the allure or what is perceived to be so special about 19.5? We have loads of F550's wearing them around here and they seem to ride rough, wear unevenly, and have horrible traction.

OP was the tow vehicle badly overloaded, were the tires? Were the tires?

They can hold more weight

Seems like you brought a knife to a gun fight. I don't really understand the obsession with setting up a truck to be completely overloaded. I'f you're gonna run around at 21k lbs, get a truck that's meant to be 21k lbs. If you're gonna tow 20k lbs, get a truck that's built to tow 20k lbs or pay somebody to do it. Now you have a $1500 tire bill for a load that would have cost you $600 to have hauled and you killed a weekend's worth of time

Well no fucking shit scooter. I tried. This was the fastest, most readily available option in the time alloted. I would have loved to pay some one to haul it with a better setup, thats why i posted a hauling needed thread. I got offers for suitable trailers but no one that vould do the complete job within the time frame needed.

I didnt want to tow it but it had to get done or the guy that was sitting on my truck was threatening to scrap it.

I did the best that i could with what i had available to me. I wished it wasnt the way it was but it is the way it is.

Ill send you my adress so you can come pick it up and drive it the rest of the way. Thank you for the help.

I don't see any mention of just moving the truck back to the edge of the trailer, not as good as backwards, but can't hurt.

I can move back about 3' then ive got a bunch of the frame hanging off the back and as far as im concerned no appreciable gain in balance. It towed fine other than the tires dieing like flies.

They were old recaps, lil,yota had no issues pulling what so ever. I dont blame the load as much i do myself for having shit tires. I should have pulled them all off after the first one blew a few weeks ago never having towed or hauled a damn thing.

Too bad you aren't local in Georgia, we have an Economy tire store that has stacks and stacks of good take-off 19.5s you can get buy for $60 each. I have them on my F550, and my brother just put a set on his Dodge 4500.

Fwiw, the goodyear 245/75r17s on a 19' F350 at work say 3600 lbs single. I forgot to look at the duall ratings until just now. They are good tires, my old boss used to get 100k miles out them on his cclb F350s and they aren't pure street tread either.

The 19.5 Michelins on our 550 are rated 5200 lbs a tire, but they need to be 120 psi to carry that.

Don't ask any tire to carry weight if it's dry rotted, under-inflated, and\or both.

Yep, those are probably in the $500 ea range like we mentioned earlier.
