Dually's are tough to buy wheels for unless you go with Alcoa's...

Or do regular wheels up front and dually rears.

Or do the Maverick's you posted but regular fronts and dually rears. Obviously not this big, just the only pic I can find.

@Eagle, re: leveling kit


AutoSpring makes a lot of spacers/levelers for all kinds of trucks be it Ford/GM/RAM up to commercial stuff as well.

Here's the Ram selection:
Dodge Lift/Leveling Kits

FWIW, my baby 1/2 ton has an AutoSpring 2" up front, stock rear blocks & has been trouble-free ever since.

Leveling you should be fine. I had 2" leveling spacer up front and 1" over stock (to maintain slight rake) rear blocks in my '11 GMC. 108,000 trouble free miles.

werd, just do a little brand specific research as far as height so you can achieve the rake you want & what knocks some stuffs geometry out of whack.

Example, on the new f150's 1.5"-2.5" is the norm. Some people will go three but you're pushing the IFS to it's limits for a spacer lift. 2" (what I have) & stock rear blocks left a 3/4" rake front to back. When towing or a lot of shit in the bed, it's basically dead on level.

See I think the mega cab short bed duallys look good.

And yeahhhh, it's not cheap. Fuel wheels are a good cheaper alternative than American Force.

I want to like fuel wheels so much, even considered mavericks for my truck but I cannot get into fake rivets. They drive me nuts.

The version I chose has no fake rivets... I don't like them either.

AFAIK they don't make them w/o rivets for single wheel apps. Otherwise there would be some anthracite maverick's on my turd.

How about Toyo tires? OPEN COUNTRY A/T II



Has a 65,000mi tread wear warranty! That's pretty awesome.

Also comes in sizes @Yaj Yak and I discussed....

Might have a winner!

Shit I've got 65,000 and still all about that stock life.

Tires, rear spacers, stock wheels, done. Worst thing is you decide in a year you want wheels. Boom, you have a winter set.
