RE: New Ram 5500 Build

Without them you will probably sandblast the finish off the tool box . They will also help protect anything you tow . I use them front and rear of the rear tires .

RE: Cracked rim on 2007 2500hd classic

If you have the name and model number you should be able to check the load rating. Don't assume they are suitable because they came off a 1 ton truck. The OP here also had them on an HD pickup. Plenty of people buy wheels and tires they like without any regard to load ratings. No! The OP here, me, had a wheel crack. The wheels on the truck are factory original the best of my knowledge. However, I DID buy an extra wheel that was supposed to be a factory GM wheel. It is entirely possible I was sold an inferior product and that is what is cracked. I'll find out this weekend when I pull another wheel off the truck and when I check my second set of wheels in storage. An original OEM GM PYO aluminum wheel has everything printed under the center cap , no need to pull the wheel just remove the cap .

RE: Cracked rim on 2007 2500hd classic

For the first 10 years of my trucks life I read regularly the Duramax forums , learned a lot from some pretty sharp people . Never once during that period did I come across a failed OEM wheel post . Not saying it can’t happen , there can always be a flaw in manufacturing , but it’s pretty rare . I once had an inner steel dually crack completely around the hub .

RE: Cracked rim on 2007 2500hd classic

On my 03 2500hd there is no weight rating stamped in the wheels . I have not seen a GM wheel yet that showed a weight rating , only a part number . I wonder if that is a knockoff or OEM .

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

It’s hard to tell from photos but if the wings and floor are solid I would say that is a very good buy for anyone interested .

RE: Do you believe this? 2022 Chevy 3500 HD dually

So the curb weight of a brand new crew cab long bed diesel dually 4x4 is 7200#? I'll believe that when me shjt turns purple and smells like rainbow sherbet. https://youtu.be/1xbLO5bB0Tk My 2019 CC SRW 8' bed LT trim with snow plow prep was 8250lbs with 3200 on the rear when delivered with full fuel and driver, they must have went on a diet. That would be over5000# on the front axle , doesn’t seem right . Did you have a plow on ?

RE: 18" tire question - UPDATED

MarkO , I thought 97 and 2017 f250 wheels had different bolt pattern. How did you swop them ? Or did I miss read .

RE: 18" tire question - UPDATED

My 2015 F350 SRW 4x4 came with LT275/70R18 tires rated at 3640-lbs, and the wheels (rims) are rated for 3590-lbs. Ford publishes a spec book, and if you can find it via Googling, That’s the first I’ve heard of something published where the oem wheels were rated less than the oem tires . Interesting.

RE: Hit the scales again this morning, PERFECT!

Not aimed at anyone n particular but the rational concerning weights sometimes baffles me . So if you put G rated 19.5 wheels and tires on your 1500 series truck you are good for 16000# gvw , wow . I don’t think anyone says that. First, it does nothing for the GVWR. I think that’s what you meant not GVW. Many SRW rear axles are rated at over 9000 lbs which you’ll never hit with stock tires. Adding F/G rated 19.5s on can bring your tires up to that rating assuming they are aired at the correct inflation which will in effect give you room on the rear axle weight but also won’t raise the RAWR because that’s a number the manufacturer controls as well. I respectfully disagree , I think many on here think just that way . They address a know weak link , mainly tires because they are easy , and forget the rest of the suspension like wheels and brakes and bearings . From the number of post on spring helpers it seems stock springs are not up to task . I did mean GVW since so many ignore GVWR . It’s not that it can’t be done and be ok but all the elements need to be addressed .

RE: Camped in a TC with 6 people … this weekend.

I camp with 4-5 girls all the time. The boss, sometimes a granddaughter, other times a sister in law. And three girl cats. You know how tough it is keeping that many females happy? I should get a trophy, a certificate, or at least a coffee mug. :W :):) your only reward is you get to drive :) LOL , sometimes it was easier with multiples, did quit a bit of traveling with wife and two daughters . I had special status as driver and grunt while they argued and chattered away ??

RE: Torklift tie down maintenance

The best product I’ve used so far is Fliuid Film . I spray the undercarriage every fall . No serious prep , just scrape off obvious peeling and spray it on . My truck has plowed snow in the salt belt and still looks pretty good .

RE: Hit the scales again this morning, PERFECT!

PERFECT ?? According to the specs you’re over gvwr by 1100# , over rawr by 790# and over rear tire rating by 590# ??

RE: Still Having Problems With TC and Truck

I thought Torklift frame mounts attached to the frame and not the bed . Do you have a picture of yours ?

RE: Front Motorcycle Carrier

Every major snowplow manufacturer uses them and snowplows spend more time on the road than anywhere else .
