Well I mapped out the current dimensions on the garage floor and it was not promising. The rear looked pretty dead on but the front was off. The tires look way to close together; I have no clue how the middle nose cone would fit in there. My solution is to just buy the actual tires used on camera then switch the front ones out with some street legal ones later. I’m going to pick them up and just use photo reference with a lot of trial and error to build the panels. Anyone know where I can get the tires cheap?

Looks like 102" is the maximum width of a vehicle to drive on the road, or at least in Florida. That makes the Tumbler 10" to wide.

Hey Reload, Yes if you are using normal dually rims the tires will be so close they will rub.  This will cause heat to be generated between the tires and eventually cause the tire to malfunction. Custom rims need to be fabricated with the proper offset for the tire you are using.  You can start with a used rim in the deminsions you are going to use. Mount the tire and inflate to proper manufacture recomendation. Measure the distance between the edge of the rim and the outermost part of the tire. Allow for tire budge due to the weight of the vehicle which causes the tire to buldge.  Then add the spacing you are looking for between the tires say 1" then allow 1/2 inch for each rim offset. The rims will be mirror images of each other so one rim is really going 12" back over the end of the axle. Make sure the axle has a brake drum or disc that will clear the inside of the wheel. Don't forget the caliper if you are going with disc brakes.......

One additional point it is illegal to use a spacer between two dually rims with extended lug bolts. The additional stress put on the lug with the leverage caused by the spacer will fail.  If that fails and you are involved in an accident you will be charged as this is not allowed on any highway in the US. Dually rims are required to be face to face mounted only....Hope that helps....BWD

So basically put, the Tumbler has its own built in extenquisher system.   i thought that was a compressed air tank for working the wings or something
