What do you do if the tire you want to run isn't made in the size you need?
If you're Dustin Skinner, you get your 22.5-inch wheels cut down to 22's in order to run Toyo Open County M/T's. When he discovered Toyo's popular mud terrain could only accommodate 22-inch diameter wheels, he improvised. And since having your wheels cut down is no inexpensive endeavor, we'd say he probably wanted the unique factor just as much as he wanted the tough, meaty stance the 33x12.50s give his '10 Ram 3500 dualie.
According to our numbers (obtained in 2008), 63.6 percent of diesel enthusiasts had (or planned to) purchase tires for their truck, and 31.8 percent had (or planned to) buy a set of aftermarket wheels for their ride. With the explosion of the 20-inch wheel scene since '08, we think the latter number has gone way up (20-inch BMF Novakanes anyone?!).
