Replace your duels with this!!

Those trucks were not designed to carry that much water and those tanks make that truck extremely top heavy... Check the NIOSH reports and you will see that a lot of fire fighter deaths have resulted from driving these style of MILITARY rigs as tankers..
Just curious, what is the GVW for those trucks and what is the actual weight they have on them when loaded with water>>>?
I know, this is off topic. When my dad was in the trucking business over 20 years ago, he had an idea for extra wide tires to replace duals. He made the mistake of sharing this idea with someone, and now he kicks himself every time he sees a set on a rig because someone made millions. Moral of the story? Keep invention ideas to yourself. Lol
We have made the change to dual rears because of overweight of single axle units

Dually all the way! I'm an Engine Boss for the Dept of Forestry and I've never had a lick of trouble outside the occasional rock or debris in the duallies. Oh and I run a Type 6 300 gal engine.
