Hi, its me again! I have a coupe of questions on the tires again. Ok, your rear is going to be 29.5 tall. I forgot to ask what would be the width of the tire. This will give me an idea how wide it would be. More or less what size do you think the quad tires in the front are.

hey...the Swamplites going on the rear are

29.5 x 10 x 12. I think the 12 is the rim, so the tire width is 10 inches. I'd like to find some wider ones if there out there. I'm looking into a company called dual concepts to set these up as duallys.



the fronts are the stock blaster wheels. 21 x 7 x 10. width is 7 inches. these i'd like to keep this size as i don't have alot of turning room.



...does it come in black?

Hey Conrad, two suggestions I'd like to make. If your rims on the front were taller say14" instead of 10" it might give you more turning radius and it would be cool to get say a slick sand tire and cut the checkered pattern into the tire like the original tire....Use a micrometer to determine how deep you can go and still be safe.....Just my two cents.....Dave

yeah...an MRI on my 39 year old knee proves I shouldn't drink and dance at my company's holiday party. my MCL has a tear i think so I'm getting immediate repair so that I can get back to jumping off roof tops...oh and working on Storm.

So last week i'm sitting there looking at it and it turns out when i widened the front arms, one ended up higher than the other. So i will be cutting and re welding one arm, then once i have them balanced and straight i will finish reinforcing them with plates and some bracing.

Hey T-Man, i'm assuming those are tumbler frame files, but my question is, where did you get them, and who made them, and what did they use for refference .

Conrad I'm sorry to hear about the bad luck on the Knee, being at the height that I am, doctors have told me that i should get use to a life of knee pain, that there is nothing they can do about it.   So when i work on my projects, i try not to "take a knee" or sit on the ground for too long.  I usually have a chair pulled up close as to not put so much pain on my knee's when standing back up.

I hope you got the front arms straightened out on storm, i really do miss seeing updates every 2 seconds out of ya.      Hope to see some progress real soon!

I promise i will be back at it soon. The extreme cold up here this year has hampered my efforts among other things in my life right now.

But I will continue this project for sure.
