    The 245 is what is on mine in the photo. Measure out to a 34.5x10 or so.

    I checked them out - looks good but I’m saving for some steel ones. Those aluminum ones scare me when I weigh down the truck. Thx!

    Doesn’t make sense? The steel ones are rated at 5000lb a piece, these are dot certified to 4500lb a piece. On a srw Truck that’s 9k lbs rated capacity. The center section on these is a solid 1 1/2 aluminum

    Ya yours look great! The 245 is what I wanted to go with as these are a 6.75 inch rim so it would give that perfectly square tire. But as much as I tow I realistically needed to go as small as I can. My new powerstroke has 35’s when I bought it and I don’t want to be anywhere near that size any longer! But hey do look good

    I couldn’t find a weight rating so i assumed as usual that aluminum will not hold up. Thanks for the heads up! I know the custom steel ones are 1/2 plate welded to the rim.

    No problem, I see where your coming from. I researched it to death as my equipment trailer is 8200lbs before I even touch a load on it. But the steel wheels I found all were the same 5k lbs. these at 4500 is not far off and each wheel is almost 20lbs lighter. But the centers on these are 1 1/2 thick solid

    Looks great!! What is the reason for the different treads? I know one is steer and one is drive but why not just use the same?

    You can but the 19.5’s are inherently bad with traction so I wanted to try something with a little aggressive tread as my rv parking is in the dirt and I have a hard enough time even with the 35’s
