Method 305 NV HD


If you can't find a `19 that will work, I haven't found a `18 with greater capacity than these.

Boar wheel

This one is over 6K weight rating per rim and priced under $300 each including lugs & center cap. It says they are trailer rims, so I don't know if they would work on a truck.

Those wheels have a zero offset for trailer axle bearings.
Plus most trailer wheels are lug centered (carries all the weight) with the center hole for clearance.
Automotive wheels like our LDTs are mostly hub centered which get the weight off the lugs which is a very big deal if the truck is used in service carrying max loads 365 days a year.
Then proper back spacing for the truck needs to be addressed.

Having whipped out more than a couple sets of rear bearing on LTDs in my hauling business that left my trucks/trailers/loads setting on the side of the road I'm now anal about using OEM offset and back spacing numbers for that vehicle.

I have had Visions for about 6 years now. Pretty happy with them. Be careful though about the TPMS's. I had to upgrade my high pressure valves since I went with commercial Michelins (16 ply, 120 psi, load H).
I paid $35 Cdn for each valve and they probably work fine, except my 2011 F350 diesel does no recognize them, at all. Will not train period so they are useless. I have no TPMS at all, so have to keep even a closer eye on things.
Oh, that comment on the very helpful and knowledgeable lady working for
Rickson,.....could not possibly agree more. Too bad they went under but I am sure she will make out just fine somewhere.
