    what do ya'll think?

    cause of the old 44 was narrower than the 60 my tires now stick out further up front. should i run it or get new rims and fix it?

    also measured the trailer and it's 80" deck and the outside tire measurement is 92" so i should have at least 3/4 of the tire on the trailer... which is plenty right?

    i like the jungle cat aspect, but i'm afraid the stealthy is out of the question.
