its not cheap, but not insane. u need 8 to 10 lug adapters which would come with the kit u purchase. doesnt really hurt the fuel mileage unless u drive it like its stolen . it be best if u had the 4:10 rear the 3:7 would be over kill. u have a 4X2 so u are gonna have to lift the front of the truck quite a bit bc all 4X2 sag in the front. but yeah just put in your lift kit, bolt on your adapter plates and put on your new wheels. there are two companies one in florida and one in texas as far as i know, i got mine from texas. brakes should be good, put in bigger wheel stops and that should be about it. if u do this u wont need to lower it bc it will fill the wheel wells nicely unless u want a low rider.
good luck tho!!, shout if u need anything else

It looks like the standard size semi tire ends up being around 36 inches. Will it clear on a stock 4x4 dually with a leveling kit?

yes, wiht the level kit it clears, you may have to trim a piece of metal at bottom of door, and put in bigger wheel stops but thats about it.

It is pretty expensive but you can lower your truck and still get them on. They make a low profile tire setup to go with the 22.5 wheels. Just go to chromewheel.com, they should have all the info you need plus plenty of pics.

22.5 alcoas

I used to have a set on my 06 dually, I sold them after five thousand miles. Felt like I had rocks for tires. I will say they look bad ! but it's strictly cosmetic and not performance. The ten lug adapters are very heavy alone, then you put the 22.5 wheels on and you can watch your mpg decrease about 5 mpg give or take. However, we are all alike in when we see what we want, who cares about mpg or how much!. I purchased my for $4000 with adapters. See pictures below.

I too have an '06 dually and I was thinking of going with the 22.5 setup but after hearing this I think I might do something different. It just looks so awesome though. But if you lose that much mpg and ride quality it is not worth it to me.
