    Anyone ever wheel with this kind of setup? I'm thinking of puting 35x12.50s on 7 inch rims and was wondering how they work when aired down...

    Larry,
    Craig (scbd) has that setup on his 72 K/5 and works fine, but when he parks next to mine with the same tire and 10" wide rims , his look very skinny... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm running 38x13x16in tsl's on 6.75in rims and have no problems with airing down into single digits /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I am running 12.5's on an 8" rim. I haven't aired down yet, but I have been told that 8" rim is great for keeping beads. Tim told me he rairly if ever looses a bead with his 38x12.5's on an 8" rim. So I imagine 7" should work just as well or better. You might have to worry more about wearing the tread in the center though.

    Very cool. Thanks for the replies guys. Tony I never worry about looks as you should know by now. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif May wear the middle down a little faster but heck, we don't get much use out of our tires if we ride them on the street all the time anyways. This is a toy and not a daily driver so I'm not worried about tread life.

    Airing down to single digits sounds great!

    Thanks again guys... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
