Whatever you do, do NOT skimp on the steers. DOT says you cannot recap steering tires on vehicles this large. Besides, if a drive tire goes POP, you can still steer in a straight line. If the front end goes kerblooey ...

Thanks for the heads up. Got any sources for steers? I've got a quote for 850 for a brand new pair, I bet there's a better deal out there.

Mechanical dt466, Allison M643, 30 foot.

We are excited to start the conversion over the next couple months!!
Welcome I'm a pretty new member to this site also I'd be curious to know what kind of mileage you get with that DT466 I have a 93 version of the dt360 which is the little brother to that 466 I get about 7 to 8 miles per gallon pretty steady with the 77 passenger.
