Röhrich,

There was about 15 to 20 millimeters between the tire and the swing arm. I did not think that I could safely put rally studs into that tire without having clearance issues.

However, since that time, my chain has stretched considerably (usually falling off in the middle of a ride with Cliff) and there is considerably more room. Perhaps you could use an old worn out chain for the inspection for the road license?

I'll get a picture of the clearance for you and Shercoman when the daylight comes back.

This is a stock picture of the tire:



This is the Duro HF 243 25x12-9. I'm using it to determine if it is worth getting a 24x11-10 for the Shercoman-modded wheel.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel
