    It's funny how a 38.5" tire can look small /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Looks great /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    No i havent blown a bead and Ive had them down to 4psi.
    If I do get a flat Ill have to rely on a little help from my friends.I almost never wheel alone.

    p.s.

    zakk has to install new exhaust, oil pan, re-tune Q-jet

    Tony has to install new Springer Drop Arms for top secret R&D work, Anti-wrap bar

    Keith has to install brakes. He hopes to have atleast rear's

    so it'll be close. I think when i get back, i'm going to start the FI swap...
