For Sampson, my 92 F600, which has factory 8 lug 22.5 wheels, how should I go to 10 lug wheels or are there Super Singles for 8 lugs trucks?

Google says they make them. Idea on price. http://www.buytruckwheels.com/22-5x14-hub-pilot-alcoa-aluminum-polished-in-drive-trailer.html

Why don't you get some 10 lug adapters and run the used mwrap wheels being sold on eBay.

Those aren't 19.5" wheels?

I like the super single idea. Keep the overall diameter the same though. You're just making it into that parking garage and it would be convienent to continue that ability.

In reply to Wally No, both ClifFord and Sampson run 22.5s

I will probably increase the tire diameter for two reasons, nicer ride and better gearing. The LoPro tires do not help with either.

Learn something new every day. I don't know anything about the new ones they put semis but we put a set of the larger ones from a cement mixer on a friends regular cab IH pickup that was Clifford sized and it was like trying to drive a bouncy house.

No good way to adapt them to ten lug, they do make 8 lug super singles although the 19.5s are easier to come by. Remember that super singles (455/55/22.5) are freaking expensive and the off brand tires are really junky.

1000 a tire is the normal price, continental, Michelin and bridgestone are the only ones I'd run.
