    I was considereing switching to them. Severel CBM companies have switched to them and are saying that their tires are lasting way longer on the diesels.

    Only down fall, the up front cost is very high, and tire replacement is also higher.

    The heavier tread is definitely a plus, and would fill out the wheel wells a little better than the stock tires. Just wondering if there were any winter traction issues with the stiffer tire.

    Had Goodyear G-159's in 19.5 on a F-550 reefer. Zero sidewall damage even after meeting some nice curbs.

    May have to just take the plunge and give it a try. Truck needs a Christmas present, anyway :p

    Here's the link to find the size you want...


    Looks like about $2200 total for wheels and tires. Can get tires locally for a little less than the web site pricing, but they do offer to balance the wheels and tires when purchased as a package. (Extra charge.)

    Most of the guys I know here are using the G124's and their happy.
    They use them on county gravel roads all day and they hold up good to this hard/sharp rock we have out here. The sidewall hold up great and you can recap these casings at Goodyear when they hit 4/32nds.
    The traction in snow pack has been really good.
