19.5 Vision heavy hauler gunmetal

Been searching everywhere and even asked the folks at Vision if they had any real world photos of their Vision heaver hauler in gunmetal gray, no response. So, anyone on here either seen em in person or better yet have a photo? Torn between the regular aluminum finish and the polished gunmetal. Thanks!

I ran the Vision rims in aluminum clear coat with 245/70R19.5 tires. The clear coat held up well even with winter use but I didn’t want 33” of darkness and preferred the constrast over going with gunmetal.

Update, received wheels in. As noted in another thread these are likely the only actual gunmetal gray pictures on the internet. Not as dark as Iíd like, was hoping for a little more contrast to the aluminum lip. Oh well weíll get em mounted up and if itís that bad could always have a body shop shoot some black and clear coat on the center section.



Planned tires, 285/70r19.5. Measure around 34Ē, compared to some pretty worn 37x13.50 Toyo M/tís measuring around 35.5Ē.

What was the load index on the Toyo MTs? Were those the 4300lb rated tires? Also, mind me asking why the switch?

19.5 Vision heavy hauler gunmetal

The Toyos were aound 3800 lb/ea. Switching because I wanted to go down to a 35Ē tire and wanted more stability/capacity for pulling a toy hauler.

The new toyos are rated around 6400lbs each, not that Iíll ever load em that heavy but feel like theyíll be great for towing. All mounted up and very impressed with how they balanced out. Honestly not near as harsh of a ride as I was expecting based on all the other reviews of 19.5ís.

Be aware the Vision rims are rated for 4500 lbs each regardless of the tire.

What pressures are you running unloaded? Are you using the inflation tables to set based on load?

Iím at 70 unloaded. Havenít towed with it yet but will definitely check out the inflation tables to try to get best ride, thatís a good call. Are inflation tables tire specific?

The tables are size and rating specific. Do not run less than 70 PSI since these tires do not have captive beads and the tire can roll off under lower pressures. I have dropped down to 50 PSI in soft sand, but they do not flex flat like a LT tire and it did no good. You will find the tires do well in almost all categories except flotation and unloaded ride comfort.

First tow with 4.10ís and 19.5ís and I can say I am very pleased. Took trailer on a 20 miles round trip venture to the truck stop to dump all water and gray/black tanks after sanitizing fresh water and realizing waste tanks were never drained by dealership prior to purchase . Feels very stable, and the shift points with the lower gears feel much better, especially the 2-3 shift. Looking forward to see if it handles differently/better with a few light toys in the back as the garage was completely empty. So far, sold on the 19.5ís.
