Super Single Rear Tires

Seen someone had replaced the rear tires on their bus with some Super Singles. Claimed less rough of a ride, as well as a speed boost which is greatly needed. Thoughts? Concerns?

A speed boost would come from taller tires - which will depend on if there's room under your bus for them, and if you can find wheels that will hold them. Super singles won't automatically give you a speed boost.

I've heard the super singles are more expensive, you'd have to buy new rims for them, and you loose the safety factor of duals - you can limp a blown dual off the highway, but if you loose a super single, you're stuck where you are on the side of the highway.

From what I've heard, it's not something I'd be interesting in throwing money at yet. I'd rather spend more for a better bus initially, or spend more money on solar/battery setup. Just my 2 cents.
