Has any 36UA gone to a 275/75R22.5

Stock is Tire Size: 255/80R22.5-GXRV , If I add 2 more springs leafs to both front and back it would take it to 32,000Lb sprung suspension.

Adding an inch to ride height for bigger tires. This is not done for additional weight capability. This would be done from my experience traveling 800 miles home in the last week.

"Infrastructure defence"

I have never seen the roads this bad in the 15 years I have be traveling the RT95 super slab.

Having taken the E450 C to an E550 C, I can see the same defences being deployed on the F53 chassis. Currently the F53 is scaled to 26,000LB springs. If we scale to 32,000, but stay the weight sticker back to 26,000. It would be a defence barrier to degraded infrastructure assault upon the Chassis.

I up armoured my class C for strength, but infrastructure still assaulted it.

I truly believe we currently do not defend our coaches enough from infrastructure.

Were way past shocks.

Stronger springs & stronger air bags. While also begging Ford to abandon stamped frame rail joiners. And adopt 8 inch pipe (well pipe is cheap steel) frame rail Joiners In 5 places. One can twist a stamp steel, One can not twist a pipe.

Good luck Wayfair to a 20 inch rim & bigger brake.
