Yeah. You would think it would be that easy. But unless you want to mortgage your house and have wheels MADE...wider dually wheels are like unicorns. I can't find them anywhere...
What you CAN do, (at least on the Fords) is swap out the front rotor/bearing hub thingy with one from a non-dually (singly ?), then buy a 8 or 10 inch wide wheel and put some tire on the front. That, combined with the 470mm of tire you already have on the rear...should be adequate flotation to drive on the beach.
My bus, at some point, wants to go to Baja.
