    nah man, my 42s measure out to 39" right now, and if you stay on the road you could do it. but if you planning on wheelin ur going to have to trim some. rear might be alright, but the front is goin to need a little work. i have trimmed mine some, but i did a crappy job, but its enough for right now til i go out to do some real wheeln
