And you are right, this thing will probably get some forgelines...if I trust my measurements enough when ordering.

I will most likely go with the 295s for the rear.

51" !! Are you sure???? That is SUPER narrow.



My rearend is something like 57", I ordered it 3" under stock. I did this because I didn't want a super deep lip on the back rims. Look at my pics and you will see. You have to take into account the thickness of the rotors you are going to use also. So know what brakes you are going to run.



Aaron's old stock frame was narrowed like 1.5" per side (not 2" like the current ABC kit). I believe he used a 10.5" with that 295 in the beginning. You should talk to him and find out the real deal and see what you should run.


RB3C!!! cool, do it up!!! I came real close to buying the VX3C.
