I have a couple sets of the Alliance 331's, 700/40 22.5. So far had great luck and can't beat the flotation and traction. I was wondering if anyone else is using floats on their trucks or trailers.
I see Alliance now makes a dot approved 390 in a 600/50 22.5. I'm trying to get my hands on a set to try. Anybody have any experience with these or know where to get 'em?
Thanks!

We run 331, 700-40's on the drives of our straight silage trucks. Our 5000 gallon manure truck has 390 600-50 on the steering axle and the steerable lift with trelleborg 800-40-26.5 on the drive axles. You won't get the traction from the 390's that you do from the 331's and to carry the load you will need to run higher pressures. I haven't had any trouble with the 390's but I don't carry more than 16k pounds on either axle, and I don't do a lot of road running. When I do I try to keep my speed down. Speed makes heat, heat kills tires. The front axle has the heavier DOT rated tires the lift just has the regular 390's. A friend got a set or two of the DOT 390's that were way out of balance, they traded them back for the regular 390's. Ours have been working fine though. We got our tires here a few years ago: Ag Equipment Specialties

Where are you located?

Have some Alliance 382 600/50R22.5 on our slinger. I was going to put CargoXBibs on but they had these with 90% tread and at a great price. Even the Michelins CargoXBibs are still cheaper than what Firestone now wants for a 14ply implement tire. DOT compliant and rated for 63mph. Designed for trucks running high speeds a lot. Couldn't tell you how the traction is, don't use them for that. I think they would be nice on a manure truck that sits on the road a lot because tires like the 331 and such aren't rated for the higher speeds. 331 is rated for 11,000lbs at 31mph and 58psi, Flotruck 382 is rated at 11,000lbs at 63mph and 94psi. The higher pressure=compaction though.

We use to run Firestone ag tires on a floater truck used in the oil field. It would go through a lot of mud if need be. Road speed was limited to about 50 kph but if mud was the name of the game, it did the job.

I just did some quick research on the flotruck 382. Do you know where I can get a set of these? Thanks.
