With the current tire and rim set up, the brake arm had to be cut to go around the tire and the chain was just about touching the tire. I have to make modifications, so why not make them for a bigger tire? So I can make the current rim wider and I can have the bearing carriers wider as well. It only cost money, but a rim already done would be easier. More cost effective.

Not only does he know his stuff, he takes the time to explain anything you need him to. Great experience doing business with him. Takes the time as if it was his own engine.
