    "Dry dirt" may have been another term for sand.

    There is no correcting the issue with a tag axle. You just don't have traction like a power divider equipped truck. The T680 that I drive is a 2016 with 62K on it, and it has super singles with a tag axle. I just had TirePass check my tires. On the rear drives, I had 22/32 tread depth. On the front drives (the tires that actually pull the truck,) they were already down to 11/32! That's just from the spinning trying to get under trailers, backing up, etc. Heaven forbid you have to back into a dock that is on an incline. If the pavement is even the slightest bit damp, forget it.

    As far as fuel economy goes. 8mpg at 78,000lb and 65mph is quite easy. The best I've had was deadheading Denver to Liberal. 11.8...empty, but pulling a trailer.

    This is the exact thing I have been experiencing. It's just a huge pain.

    I am a o/o run north west and western Canada last 5 year yes in the winter and I run all position tires on drives
    only time I have problems is starting off but ant had to but tow yet and yes fuel mileage went up and truck rides better
    Tag axle on trailer There going down the road everyday
    No I don't work for quest but if that all the complaints sound better than most
