Please read! Dually tall/skinny tire demand

I am throwing this out there to get interest in the demand for a tall but skinny tire for use on dually rims without spacers specifically OE 17" dually rims. I have been in contact with Mickey Thompson and they seem very interested in the idea of making such a tire. They mention doing a 235/95R17 or (35x9.50r17) in either there STZ or ATZP3. If the demand is there of course and from what I have been reading people should be interested in this, a great alternative to running commercial tires or running spacers. So if your interested post up and I will send this link over to Mickey Thompson so they can see.

Not for a dually, but I would like to find a 285 wide tire in a 10 ply that is not any taller then the 265/70-17. Would like a bit wider footprint without going taller. A 285/65-17 in a 10 ply would be about the same height as a stock 265 tire.
