10.50's. They measure a bit over 9" wide at the tread.


Wow, that Ford is bigger than it seems. Those tires look smaller mounted on there. Lots of room under that fender pan, I guess.

Mean looking Ford Kenny. The Ags really make it look like it's ready to go work.

Kenny, Those AG's look great on the Ford. All that weight will really make her pull good. :thumbs:

Great idea on the 2 valve stems also !!

They will each get 7 gallons +/- of WWF inside. With me on it, it should weigh in around 1300-1400 lbs.
There is a lot of space above the tires, but not as much in front of them.

That Ford looks great!! :good_job:
What do you use the brake rotors for? Extra weight? If so where do you mount them?

Yep, WWF is windshield washer fluid. Around 8 lbs. per gallon.

The brake rotors hold my lead weights on the wheels. The thread is here.

Great use of brake rotors! I have 2 and 2 drums also and have been trying to figure out how to make my weights. That gives a lot of insight to it. I also have access to lead from water lines we replace at work. I will have to do some playing around with the idea. Did the extra weight make a big difference in the Ford's performance?

Geno, the lead helped quite a bit. Now, with the AG's and loading them, I should see a bunch more improvement. You have to realize the Ford have a limited-slip rear axle, so both tires are pulling. It may be a while before I get to try it out,though.
