    Jumbo jim 4.8 on rear of beargrease?

    I've got the HED big deal wheels which are 85mm wide. Anyone try putting 4.8 on the rear? What do you people think my chances are of getting it to fit?

    Pic for clicks!

    I had to trim the rear side lugs completely off to run them on my HED/BG rig. Even after trimming it was too close for comfort!

    Anyone tried a 4.7 Barbegazi? I just tried one in a 170mm Fatback frame I have and it fit.
    I like turtles
