I've only ever seen them on F trucks, chevy trucks and the ole bedford van. And the are all within guards.

I can't see that they would be of any purpose to a stock 4wd, it would be illegal to start with it.

Nope, never seen one of those before. I'd be concerned about the additional strain on the studs and nuts

obviously for occasional use only, they are professionally made & come with their own studs 'n nuts, I have had them for 7 or 8 years, as I said - great for big red & other desert sands, not to mention mud also

What additional strain on the studs and nuts..??

have a think about it.....from a dynamic perspective compared to the outer diametre of the original wheel and tyre....in road and offroad conditions.

These things have been around for years - when i first started 4wding in the mid 70s there were articles in magazines on how to build your own. As for getting up Big Red - for sure you might do it in a couple of days.

The idea is quite sound but the execution not so good.

I'm not sure dual wheels are much chop for off road work. I think they were designed more for load carrying on reasonably hard surfaces.
Apart from the obvious side wall damage a rock caught between the tyres could cause, I have heard they tend to build up sand, mud whatever between the tyres and reduce your off road ability.
I think you will find "Super singles" or at very least wider single tyres would be much more effective.
Also consider the loadings being imposed on the wheel bearings.

Cheers

Most trucks of that size do.

Have a look at pics of the drilling rig trucks they use in areas like the Sahara. Huge great singles all round.

He would use a length of pipe as a :rail" between the dual rear tyres, one each side, as a debogging device.

Must have worked well or he wouldn't have bothered carrying them.

When I was in Riyadh in 1985-87 , the Nissan brochure actually offered aircraft type balloon tyres as an option on Patrols.
They would have been diabolical on the few wet days, but great on the sand.

Reminds me of a conversation I had with a bloke at Dalhousie Springs about 10 years ago. We'd just arrived from across the Simpson and he (and his mates) were going to head east.

He had a Ford F350 with dual wheels and I asked him how he thought he'd go getting across the dunes.

He pointed to the 2 spares he had behind the cab and then motioned to the front wheels......saying : "If I get stuck I'll just bolt those onto the front wheels and she'll be right" (or words to that effect). He had the ability to add the extras on if he needed to.

Would love to have tagged along just to see him in action.

One trip across the desert from Cowrie station towards Oodnadatta cross country, in a convoy of 16 vehicles years ago we were in a Suby, when we came to the big dunes which no one could get up. mate fitted his dual rear wheels and we only managed to get about half as far as on the singles, seem that with the lighter 4x4's it just seemed to sit on the top and spin.
They were really good on the soft dry claypans the back didn't sink in at all.
That was there last trip for them still in the shed, they are just double ended nuts and bolts.
The Suby's had lift kits and there was no rubbing problems.
Cheers Des.

g'day des, you obviously have a different system to mine, not just nuts 'n bolts, this system can accommodate an offset so it can lever it'self out of a situation like humping from one rotation to the next!! it is a multi purpose tool to get you out of trouble!

In 1970, I fitted dual 12" wheels from a Hilman Imp to the front of a Mini (with adjustable height suspension) to help in sandy country west of Coward Springs on the Oodnadatta Track.

Never tried them a second time..............
