Sno-way for a C5500?

    I have been plowing residential drives with an ASV RC-100 (bucket only) for four years. Works great- 39 drives in 4 hours $$$:) :)
    But now I also have an agreement to plow 7 miles of roads.
    Will a 32 series Sno-way work on my GMC C5500 4x4.
    It seems light compared to the blizzard. (Sno-way and Blizzard are the only two dealers in my area)
    This seems like an advantage- less wear and tear on the front end components and less of a chance of getting the front end stuck. But are these durable enough for a 10,000lb truck?
    Looking for good honest advice from users and dealers alike, no bashing.
    Thanks for any advice you can give

    Snoway doesn't list the 5500 only because of the possible weight capacity of the truck.
    We have customers using them very successfully on 4500s. I think the 5500 would be fine if you limited the ballast load to 3/4K.
