    Are you looking into a set of Semi wheels for a 1500?? A friend had them on his HD and it Looked very cool I will try to find a pic.. But a 1500 I don't know.....I would not do it..

    why would you want to? not only do they use a completely different lug setup (10 bolt) they are far heavier, clearance issues everywhere, and tires are really expensive. i could maybe see it on a lifted one ton or something, but those trucks are built car heavier, a 1500 just could handle the stress involved. there is a reason those rims are on semis and the like.

    No, your not drunk and this is a real post I have seen a number of 3500/350's where it has been done. I have seen stupid(er)not a real word; things done to trucks before.

    Yes, I have seen a number of 1 ton/ 3500's/F350's where they have done this and I really like the look if gives. I assume that the tranny and axles on a 1500 would get destroyed (stock) trying to use that tire and wheel combination.

    So it could potentially be done, but it would require more than wheels, tires and a lift kit........ a new tranny and axles would be needed to.

    Not sure how much more of a clearance issue I would have over the clearance issues I have now with a stock height 1500, it would probably sit a tad higher that it does now.

    The cost of tires is relative...... My 265/70R16 Michelin LTX M/S2 were $189 each....... People with lifts that use nitto grappler's are sitting at 35 inches (road to top of tire). This would not be any different.

    Also the nitto's are almost $400 each ($391). 11R22.5's run between $250 and $300 per tire.


    So if I want to use these:

    on a 1500, I assume, I would need to upgrade to an HD Transmission (4L80e/gas) or the allison (diesel). The drive shaft would need to be upgraded. I could go with a 3500 HD axle in the back, a lift kit and heavy duty suspension in the front to support the weight and clearance of the new wheels.

    Those wheels are heavier than the stock wheels on a 1500, but they are lighter than the steel wheels on a semi.
