Congrats! great truck and project.

I have two questions: what size are the new tires, 365/80 R20 with 11" rims? what are you using to stick the walls of the camper?

It is true about de Gerard But the best compromise was to keep low axle ratio whit Big tyres and overdrive, I know It is expensive but the axles to, the tyres are 365 85 20, or 13.00. R20 and the rims are 10, to stick the Panels I use polimer glu, It is the used to paste the front screen of the Cars, late I Will ribet one aluminium L profile

I was thinking 11" wheels were needed for the 365 tires?

I dont know, Im not expert on trucks, but military trucks use 13.00 whit 10, It must be not a problem, I complane more about use these Big tyres whit the std Unimog 6 Bolt rims, they are agricultural rims for 12,5 wheels, these are bead block whit a Big falange, the std has a very small flange

No Tom, the 365/85 R20 are for 9" or 10" rims. I called Michelin importer asking about this because they have available in Chile this size but not the 365/80, and they do not recommend me to use them in 11" rims. The 365/80 R20 like yours are for 11" rims.

I would think that with beadlock type wheels the range of acceptable tire sizes that could be used would be greater since they are not depending on just air pressure to keep the tire's beads seated?

Seems like your 10 inch wide wheels would work well with a 365/85 R20 tire anyways?
