Just curious. Planning a trip to Denver, and am thinking about taking my truck. Should I be ok keeping my 22's on? The truck will be full all the way there and back

Never had this set up on a long road trip before.

It would help if you told us where you will be leaving from... :wink: With the sorry state of disrepair of our local roads here in bankrupt California, you could do more damage to rims and suspensions driving 3 miles up the 710 freeway between Long Beach and Compton than you would on a cross-country trip over decently paved highways! As long as you purchased quality rims and don't mind the harder ride of the 22s over the stockers, you should be fine. Is your spare full size and does it match your big wheels in overall diameter? Are the lugs of the 22s different than the stock nuts? If so, don't forget to carry 5 stock lugs with you, should you need to mount that spare in the middle of nowhere. :doh:

Put a bottle of heavy cream in the back and all will be fine. You'll have fresh butter upon your arrival. :mrgreen:

Details...Currently running 22' Chrome Redbourne Dukes with Yoko Tires. Will be going form Kansas City KS to Denver. I-70 is decent as far as road condition.

I do not have a full size spare Stock or 22. I have the stock nuts on my truck. Didnt get anything after market.

So what happens if I blow one of my 22's and I have to put on a stock 19?

Just to be clear...Im not concerned with blowing a tire than busting a rim.

What price tag should I be looking at for a single stock rim. I might pick up another duke as well.

Can you tell I'm a rookie at this???

You are way overthinking this. Check your tire pressures, your oil level, top off the washer fluid, stop at Arthur Bryants to bring some bbq for whoever your visiting, and drive to Denver. You have a 0.2% chance of getting a flat.

I bought a 5th full sized, matching spare. Of course there's good reason to have that it you go offroad... If I were just a concrete warrior I'd probably not worry about it too much. If your blood pressure spikes at the thought of being stranded in BFE where the nearest 285/35-22 is two days away, then there's nothing wrong with buying a full sized matching spare.

If you want to be frugal (like I usually am), you could probably just ditch your factory spare tire and mount the appropriate diameter tire on the factory spare wheel. Fashion police may take issue, but so long as your sporting some fancy Prada footwear you'll be ok. :)

It sounds really strange that how can someone wearing such an odd size of 22" can travel on a road for so long? It is still unbelievable.
Fyi, he's in the Guiness Book of World Records for longest road trip on 22's.

Speaking of...is it just me or are the posts on this forum getting stranger lately?

Its like "One Flew Over the RRS Forum" around here.
It our new generation of manual spammers. They throw up three or four generic posts that make no sense then add or change their siggy to a spam link. :roll:

I keep offering to buy the products that these spammers are selling, but so far I have not received my custom LeBron jersey nor my 3 for 1 folding lawn chairs. Any suggestions?

Maybe they see your siggy and are afraid you'll deck 'em when the jersey melts in the first rain. :lol:

Rich, thanks for the clarification. I wasn't aware such effort was being expended.

Drevs, seeing that you are into sports memorabilia I have a signed Pete Carroll picture if you're interested. Its him jumping in the air with a fist pump after the USC-Oklahoma game.
