Post Tires on My Dually
Do I have to / Need to run "D" series tires up front? If so Why?

When these are wore out I want to get a slightly shorter tire.

Go to a scale and have them weigh just the front of the truck, that should tell you.

We have a set of truck scales here at work. What do
I need to do just stop with the front wheels on them
or pull all te way on just before the rear wheels hit?

As long as the scale is on level ground, your weight distribution will be the same whether you have just your front fenders over the scale or all of your truck except the back wheels over it.
