  1. thats a real cool mack truck, can you post more pics of it i like the visor
  2. yep when they blow they leave some damage on the truck, the 12r 24.5 is the same has 11r 24.5 just taller
  3. No extended warranty? This sucks no warranty on one of the most important parts of the truck
  4. thats so cool, going to put visit to Australia in my things to do list
  5. yes i know a few guys with that probem, on a tandem dump truck 2 to 3 weeks to replace frames, roll offs tryaxles 5 to 6 weeks, me i would not replace frame, i would weld,reinforce with a sleave on the inside of the frame I think that mack has extended the warranty on the frames, maybe someone on here will know better than me
  6. I'm with everyone go with the camelback Gumbie im sorry but i must desagree with you on the tires, in my opinion and experience float tires suck, i have seen way to many trucks with blow outs on the side of the road with 385's or 425 floats, including my self when i runned then, and when they go they can make some bad damage i saw a pete 379 lose a fender and an air cleaner do to a blow out at 65mph. i love 12r 24.5 never had a problem with them.
  7. how is that frame not bent? or broken cross members?

    Recap Tires:

    The michelin i have do have 1 seam where bouth ends join, i have never seen a cap with no seams Why do i run caps? Well i only run local (@35k miles a year) and i know where im getting my cassings from, i will not buy a cassing thats allready caped from a tire shop ever because it could be an old cassing thats been caped a couple of times

    Recap Tires:

    I run the cap tires, never had a problem with them, i ran the bandag 4300 cap on all bridgestone for a long time, Im now trying something different these are michelin casings with michelin caps, the caps are very identical to the xzy2 tread on a new tire, i only cap my tires 1 time, i then sale my casings, a friend of mines buys new tires uses them and i then buy them from him, these michelins i payed $90.00 each i then payed $168.00 for the cap total of $258.00, last set of front tires i payed $445.00 on sale (michelin) thats why im going to keep running caps. Now witch do i like best? i think i like the set that im running right now because the michelin's side wall is softer witch makes the truck ride alot smother, and with the bandag cap there was a zom zom noise when above 45 50 mph.
  10. cool pictures, i like your pops truck
