    Anyone have any suggestions on some tire dollies?

    I am trying to get my bucket in the garage for storage while I am on the road. I think the only way to clear the garage door is going to be to remove the tires completely and just sit rims on tire dollies. I am on the road now or I would do some better measuring. I think letting out the air is going to be a non option with the 52" and 56 diy flip in the rear and ratchet tie them up.

    Find some junk rims and just drive it in on the rims.

    put plywood sheet down first, if you're worried about the floor.

    I've got a place that I can store it. :wink1: Just the garage has a few large rocks in it and they might rub a little, will try not to hurt the lid though.

    On a serious note, think it will fit with a set of rollers. We gots plenty of little tires around here. Otherwise go-jacks is all I can offer, put an old set of rims on or just set it on the rotors and wheel it in on the jacks.

    Do you know of anyone in the club that has a set of stock 8 lug wheels laying around that I can thrash?

    I do if you want the set of 38" Hawgs that are on them, selling for a good price. I'll ask and see what Paul has, if not we can dismount these.

    I'll give you 100.00 for them and then charge you 50.00 to dismount and return the rubber:wink1:
