    In texas, its where your head lights are.. 55" off the gorund legal limit, so either lower em or put em on your axles some how for street use.

    Actually they are advertising 49.4", 49.5" and 52.9" tires on that site. Keep in mind that all these tires come on 5 TON military trucks and the tires are extremely heavy.

    Also note the Max Speed rating on those tires. 55 MPH. So don't plan any high speed highway trips with those giants on your truck. They were designed to carry impossibly heavy loads, in slow, heavy Army trucks. At higher speeds it's likely that the centrifugal force would cause them to self destruct. [​IMG]

    Not saying I'd go Autobahn style with them, but I don't think you'd have a problem cruising a little higher than 55 with them given the weight you'll have on them. However I doubt you'd want to go much faster than that regardless of rated speed.

    not that our trucks are speed demons , every 5 ton or higher vehicle I have driven has easily went at least 70 mph, the tires are rated at 110mph according to the markings. Now will the ever see that (sure when loaded in the belly of a C-5) jesse

    Take a look at the website listed above. Every tire there is listed as having a 55 mph top speed rating. [​IMG]

    what is the top speed rating of swampers?
    those are michelins, I know someone that runs them unbalanced with zero trouble
    he has 3.54 gears and 39" tires in a dodge cummins 5 speed truck.
    he cruises comfortably at over 80mph
    he sells new michelins as a sideline
    uses his dodge to haul powerpoles for his electrical installation business

    the album with his stuff is called "don's"

    LOL!! I went to that site and viewed the axles and the info about them.
    Guess what? The whole article, word for word, and all the pictures are from the Boyce Equipment site!!! [​IMG]

    Maybe this site copied Boyce or Boyce copied the usa6x6.com site!!! [​IMG]


    I'm not picking my nose...I'm just pointing at my brain!! [​IMG]
