Re: v-10 or I-6 edit-cummins for sure
yeah i can tell you just by looking at them that you dont want to haul [censored] with those suckers on asphalt. but really if you look at how much weight they are rated for and how much you're actually going to be putting on them, you've got quite a safety margin. Those are sweet tires but you'd be looking at 1000 pounds just for the tires, add rims and air and thats a lot of rotating mass to get going, even for a big block. I was actually pondering "the ultimate mudder" the other day with a built 460 and rockwells, and here are a couple more tires i came across:
Firestone Agriculture All Traction Utility - size 16.9-24
it has a 51.9" diameter and is 16.9" wide, but only weighs 148 pounds
Firestone Agriculture Flotation 23* 48x25.0-20
size says it all, but still only 162 pounds
Michelin XM27 Utility & Industrial Tubeless 425/75R20
it's 45" tall and 16.7" wide, not sure on weight but rated at 55mph
I was mainly looking for big tractor/industrial tires that dont weigh a ton, because wheelspin is a lot more fun than just floating over everything. These tires should still have tons of floatation ability for a 9000 lb truck. The weights of the tires are probably not much more than a 44" bogger and would really churn up the swamp bottom. i dont know how much you could find one for, but an Allison v12 aircraft motor puts out 1400 HP stock, you'd have a real live monster truck with that under the hood!
