you can adjust till' you turn blue....

there ain't enough room for that 5" and a DOT 160 in that swingarm... the manufacturer's don't even recommend putting a 160 on a 5"... you ever look this up?.... all the squids gotta do it so the tire looks wide and flat... you aint even getting the right profile when you're turning, on the side of the tire....

adjust farther towards the brakeside, and then the tire rubs the swingarm... there's pics somewhere of guys actually taking a piece outta the brakeside of the swingarm and welding it up to get the clearance needed....

keep adjusting... get a belt sander and take it to the outside ridge on the tire... that should get it.... .... i mean, what could happen?....
