alright,... here i was today researching <span class="ev_code_RED">TIRES</span>
on dually F350 ... and Sean gives me a call at work and we talk the same thing!!
This has certainly become a TIRE Forum.
here is what it looks like Ford offers on the dually end of the line:
L245/75Rx17E tires with EITHER:
All Seasons - Continental; or,
All Terrain - B.F. Goodrich
(and also a BFG-"Rugged Trail" which i'm not sure how aggresive it is.)
(and from what i have seen while making workorders on Ford's site, you CAN specify between those two brands.)
The Contis come "BSW" - black side wall
and the BF's come "OWL" - outline white letters
BUT, what i can figure out, and since i am pursuing Fx4, both the All-Season and the All-Terrain are reasonably similar in nature to each other, a relatively mild tread.
I would presume that to get a truly aggresive tread on a dually, you are going to have to spacer the rear outside tire some inches away from the inside tire, and this is not optimum for bearing life.
So, i suppose i need to find out what other options, if any, exist for a more aggresive dually tire. (And maybe Hans Christian Anderson has some tales I can research at the same time too.
But if having a dually tire and pulling a heavy trailer over miles of soft sand is the goal, ..
.. do the Conti and/or BFG "All-Season All-Terrain" stockers pack some punch, or is there a true
offroad All-Terrain that more mimics the tread a wild-man Jeep has?
