Need help on tire combo

I have been tring different tire set ups for pulling and wondered what others have found to work best with a dual wheeled truck? More aggesive in front a/ts in the rear - non dually wheel in front maybe a 10" wide? Because there are two wheels in back going with 40 lbs of air instead of 53 lbs for a wider foor print? I seem to be inconsistent at the events and cant make out if it was the track the driver(me) or the tire combo I was tring? :thanks:

try a rough A/T tire or a crossover from a M/T and a A/T like this one http://www.mastercrafttires.com/us/e...ht+Truck+Tires on our dually we run 70psi in the backs and 20psi in the front and so far it has been doing great..

I think the type of track you pull on makes a big difference as well.

try interco's Trxus STS Mudders all the way around that seems to be the really hot ticket for the duallys at all the pulls i have been at. u might need wheel spacers to make it work but they have great bite

:iagree the sts' seem to be a hot tire. Just don't use them on the street, the don't last long and they loose the sharp edge that gives them there advantage

yep sure do i agree but he will need either well spacers or just put them on to pull with which be the best idea and from the trucks i have seen them let them rub so dirt dont between them and also have more surface area kinda like running one gaint tire

Thanks for the input I have been getting more consistant since about October figured a few things out. Running more aggresive tires in the front only airing down the rear tires when rule of pull allows the rear springs locked. Next pull I will be tring 10" wide wheels in front. :dodge
