doesn't need to be that low, 2 feet off the ground should be plenty, and if that ain't enough just have a smaller set of wheels at the midway point that typically never touch the ground.
The reason why those wheels have to touch the ground is because the weight is distributed among the tires. Having fewer tires = doing more damage to the road and the tires. You can just make the middle tires not touch the ground and call it good. In fact you are required to have a certain number of tires per amount of weight in your truck.

why you gotta remind me about the a-10 man
That won't happen for at least a little while longer. iirc Congress has basically told the Air Force to quit bitching about flying CAS and keep the A-10 until a proper replacement is ready
of course, the Air Force being what it is, they'll try to claim that the F-35 is said "replacement".
And iirc they're due to start phasing out the a-10 in 2018, and the final one will be retired in 2024 or somewhere around that
Which, imho, is stupid, because while the USAF can claim up and down that the F-35 is the best thing ever, if only to justify the stupidly expensive price tag
and potentially cover up the possibility that some high-ranked officers were bribed by Lockheed-Martin, much like they did with the F-104 a while back
, there hasn't been a suitable replacement for the A-10 put forth yet.
Honestly, if the Air Force hates flying CAS that much, then I say give the A-10 and other pure attackers back to the Army, but perhaps the only thing the Air Force hates even more than flying CAS, naturally, is letting the Army fly fixed-wing aircraft.
Well the Marines have an air division too, though from my understanding it's mostly helicopters and VTOLs. They have a few jets, but honestly when you think of Marines the first thing that comes to mind usually isn't CAS.
Still, the Jarheads at least have some limited ability to provide their own air support.
